A cabinet which was destined for the shed, has became a very practical ironing station.
I think this cupboard was originally a microwave cabinet.
This orphan office bench, makes a great ironing table, to replace the one still at the old house. It's actually much better, as it has very convenient built-in storage.
Once the fabric is moved, I can make good use of those shelves!
This old office table, also destined for the shed, I've 'borrowed' as a cutting table. It can also be used as a sewing table for the dressmaking machines. I may keep this instead of going back to the folding tables I was using before (which are still at the old house).
The Pfaff, the overlocker & the coverstich machines can be used on this table for dressmaking
In Quilter's Academy 2, Harriet talks about storing fabric, and one idea I really like is to use office filing cabinets. I gathered up this one - it's shallow drawers could be useful for fat quarters.
I shoved my quilting fabric into the shelves under the ironing table as I unpacked it but it's ultimate destination will be in this wardrobe which won't be needed elsewhere in the new house. It still needs to be put together, but it will hold lots of wire baskets, enough I hope for all the quilting and dressmaking fabrics. There are actually 2 of these, I may or may not use the other one - it depends on if I have the need or space for it.
It's very tall !!
The Horn cabinet is awaiting the arrival of the Bernina 830 Record
The Horn cabinet can of course be moved to anywhere in the room. I've placed it in the centre, close to the ironing station, great for piecing. For quilting, I have the space to surround the cabinet with folding tables for supporting the quilt.
Some storage bins and quilting books are set up and ready. One of the storage 'towers' lost a wheel in the move, so it's now wheel-less and shorter than the other. It holds quilting scraps, the other one has various dressmaking notions.
The Singer treadle was left behind but the 201 made it onto the truck, along with the Jones treadle. I put them in a corner for now.
Almost ready to sew!
I suppose I've been a little indulgent, getting the sewing room functional so quickly, but sometimes a girl needs a place to escape the chaos! Anyway, the important bits have been attended to - the kitchen is done, the living room done, bedroom done, linen done, the study half done (the computers are set up and working - thanks John!). The garage, shed & laundry are disasters, so are the spare bedrooms. No, I'm not Superwoman, we've been moving boxes across in the Ute for the past week and unpacking as we go, which has really helped in getting set up.
Tomorrow I tackle this room - the place where everything else gets shoved until it finds it's right place(including more sewing stuff)!
