With Galli Studio's arriving last week to tape a DVD series I had to shape up my studio. Many pieces had to be removed to allow space for lights and camera's. I liked the open feeling so much I've kept it pretty much as it was last week. But, before showing you what it now looks like I want to show you a box I decorated to hold various projects for the DVD.
A local craft shop had a 40% sale on boxes. I picked two of the not so pretty ones and came home and started decorating them. With fabric, of course.
The woman on the right was colored with Tsukineko's All Purpose Inks. The woman on the left was done with Copic markers. The fabric was glued on, then covered with Mod Podge to hold it all in place. Took just a few hours and now I have a lovely box to hold projects.
This photo is of the closet, with the doors removed, that houses my fabrics and beads. The cubby holds yarn and the rest holds books and CD's. Other supplies, too.
We had purchased the table you see as the producer wanted me to have a table that would be relatively clear so I could show how to do various techniques. I liked having the table so much it is now a permanent part, as you can see. Rather cluttered at the moment as I'm working on several projects.
The photo on the right is another view, facing the window. More fabrics - my silks, organza's and velvets. Yes, there's two machines, but one is my Babylock Embellisher. The other is my favorite sewing machine - a Bernina 440 QE.
I have 6 Bernina machines and one Singer Featherweight. Once a year I host a master class and with so many flying in from other states and countries it is nice having machines for them to use. Thus the reason I have so many. I generally have two sewing machines and the embellisher operating almost daily when I'm home.
Finally a view of the other side of the room with my wonderful "wall of threads". I do love threads. Superior Threads are my favorites for embellishing. Superior's Rainbows are my passion, along with their varigated metallics.
Hope you had fun looking into my studio. Now, I need to head back upstairs and get to work!
