Sewing at work

1 Apr

Not ballroom related, but there is a discussion about sewing without a dedicated sewing room on Pattern Review, so I thought I would post it here to make linking easier.

Here is my “sewing room”!  An adorable Kenmore 158.1045 and a wood TV table wedged between a filing cabinet and the furnace cold air return. If I sit for any length of time, the breeze makes my feet and legs extremely cold!

All set up and ready to sew.  My $5.00 thrift store 1045 is raring to go.

A longer view. This all sits behind the desk, which is the catch-all place for things that either don’t have a permanent place to live or that we need to keep away from the toddlers.  You can see a set of the quickie curtains I made for the window into the nap room in the upper left corner of the photo.  The green and white bag in the lower left corner is my “stash”,  notions, supplies and everything else except my scissors, which are put away so that neither children nor staff can get their grubby little hands on them!

    good idea…maybe I should get a folding table…it does my back in leaning over a stool or low coffe table when I use a machine.

    The little table is quite a good height and that chair is pretty low, which works for me. Years ago I used my children’s old play table and chairs to sew, though it was mostly hemming and mending and not major projects. I always intended to get a photo because even though I am short, it must have been comical.
