Abby's Sewing Space

Hi sewing friends! I'm Abby from Sew Much Ado, and am excited to be here today sharing my sewing room with you! At Sew Much Ado I love to share sewing and DIY projects, including tutorials, free patterns, and patterns in our shop

Come have a peek!

This room also serves as my office on the other side of the room, which includes my computer, printer, and filing cabinet. On the sewing side, I have this large table that I painted white with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and lightly distressed the edges. I looooove this table. It is super heavy and sturdy, so there is no shaking or movement when I'm sewing. And it's large enough to fit my three sewing machines plus room for cutting, so I'm sure I'll keep it for a very long time.

A lot of my fabric is stored underneath the table in bins (along with some pattern sheets for my printed patterns). I'd like to change it one day and organize it better, but probably not anytime soon, because life. I have a bin of cottons, flannel, and felt, one for knits, and one for other apparel fabrics.

I wrote all about the hutch that I painted here. I found some great drawer organizers from Ikea, and the top two drawers are filled with my notions. The bottom holds my small bins of ribbons, bias tape and zippers, as well as some larger items like my serger thread and iron. The drawer organizers have been so great for keeping everything in it's place - at least most of the time ;)

The top of the hutch holds my sewing books, my pickle jar full of buttons, and some other organizers.

The back of the room is one large closet across the length of the wall, and is where I keep my printed patterns, mailing supplies, and yet more fabric (in these bins).

Now onto the important stuff, my machines!

I have a Janome that my husband bought me when we were engaged that I've been using for over 13 years now. I'd say that was the best gift I've ever received.

I have two sergers - one is a Singer serger/coverstitch combo, and until a few years ago, was my only serger. Then I bought the "sewing blogger special" Brother serger so that I could use my Singer exclusively as a coverstitch. I'm so glad I did, because I use the coverstitch all the time now and love it.

I was worried about my machines scratching my white table, and so was excited to find desk mats at Ikea for about $6 each (similar to this). I bought two which fit my machines perfectly. I can move them forward and back and don't have to worry about my table. Now if something could just keep my kids' crayons at bay...

I'm soooo happy to have this thread rack after years of hating my thread storage container. I love being able to see it all at once and know what colors I'm getting short on. I store my bobbins on the rack too, and it has worked out great! I also have another one for serger thread, and am almost read to add a third, hehe!

I really love my sewing space, and am so grateful to have a dedicated room that I can enjoy, mess up, and enjoy some more! Thanks for visiting it with me, and come say hello at Sew Much Ado anytime!
