I don't get much time for sewing however, because my client likes to hold lots of endless staff meetings.
This is the entrance to the room where we spend the most time. It's a large room over the garage.
In the center of the room is my client's office. He only has three legs and at 17 years old is quite arthritic, so he needs stairs to get to his loft space with the window view. And his water is right next to the leg of the cutting table (right hand side), so I spill it daily. But if I move it, I'm guaranteed another staff meeting.
I used to feed birds so my client and I could watch them from his loft, but a neighbor stole the bird feeder, took it into the woods and vandalized it.
This is the view from the doorway, looking to the left, where I have the elfa storage for cuts of fabric up to 1/2 yard. And this is my fancy electronic Bernina 1630 that I use for piecing. It stitches both forward and reverse!
This is a longer view of the room. As you can see, the room layout is set up to maximize travel from one place to the other. But given I spend most of my time at my client's office in staff meetings, sewing efficiency is the least of my worries.
I use this sewing machine (Bernina 930) for quilting. It is housed in the sewing table that came with it. Notice how nicely it's laminate matches the faux wood of the formica dining room table behind it. (This was my family's dining room table when I was growing up.) But really the arrangement allows the long table to hold the bulk of the quilt as I'm machine quilting.
Looking back you can see the cutting table and newly constructed design wall that is attached to the back of two shelving units. I got the cutting table from a former employer back in the late 70s when they switched out wood furniture for metal. It was sold as surplus for $10, and is the perfect size and height for pin basting as well as cutting.
