    Oh my gosh, this is in someone's house!

    Roaming Instagram looking at quilts. This is someone's quilting room!

    Ohhhhh, i hope not too much sun (or natural light as they say these days) gets to the fabrics. Lovely colors too!
    it must be kept super clean with the batting lying on the floor!

      Lorie,

      I told you not to post any pictures of my sewing room!๐Ÿ™„

      Seriously, I don't know how much work I would get done in there from looking out the window all the time.

      There's nothing more directly linked to who we are than the fabric that we make.

          Any movie that has Andre the Giant in it can't be all bad. Loved it!

        The room is beautiful but I wonder how she keeps dust off the fabric. The top row would be a pain to dust.

          Here's the scoop. She owns a Canadian online fabric store.

            I looked at the site and those prices are for 1/2 yards.

            Thanks for info. i had not heard of this Cdn store.
            Hullamoon - she sells the fabric by 1/2 yard, so double the price say on Kona to $12y. That would probably equate to less than $8 a yard. You have to do the math backwards. When I buy in US $$, say $10US is roughly equal to 13.50-14.00 CDN.

            I know it was 1/2 yd. If you click on the comments to the right,(they get hidden) Bubba mentions that. Thanks Suzanne for the backwards lesson. lol

              There's probably a longarm on the other side!

            What a rainbow of colors. My guess is there is some sort of protective film on the windows to cut down on the light exposure. One of the quilt stores here has done that where there is a whole bank of windows. I keep my fabric stash protected from the light & dust.

              Me too Joy. Is this advisable to do with threads as well? I'm guessing so. I have mine on a thread rack but am thinking maybe that's not a good idea.

              I keep my threads -- both piecing & quilting -- protected from dust & light. I store them in a drawer. It's easy to see all the spools or cones when opening the drawer.

              I have a rolling clear drawer unit I keep my jewelry making supplies in. I think I will convert that for threads. I haven't made jewelry in a long while anyways. Thanks Joy!

            There is a light defusion on the windows and there is a roller shade above. What a showplace!

                I'm with you Anita. I would just like enough space to work properly. My own little sewing room with proper cutting and sewing table would be nice.
