My Inglorious Sewing Room

Carolyn over at Diary of a Sewing Fanatic has an interesting conversation going this morning about sewing rooms, so I thought I'd show you some pictures of mine. It doesn't usually look like this. These were taken shortly after the beginning of the installation of my new furnace earlier this week. My sewing room had to be hastily dismantled in order to get to the old furnace and make way for the new. What a mess!!

My fabric hoard (on the left) would just about fit in the box
 the furnace came in. That's a smaller than average
hoard, don't you think?

The new furnace next to my main worktable, along with
my regular machine and serger. Drawers under this table
contain notions and such.

Not so subtle product placement for Haberman Fabrics,
next to sheet metal pliers and whatever that other thing is.

along with parts of the bookcases.
I've had to channel my energy elsewhere this week. My husband and I are going to spend the day today (or the whole weekend) putting the room back together. Looking on the bright side, I'm grateful it wasn't a flood at least. And it will give me an opportunity to thin things out a bit. Less clutter equals a quieter mind!


  1. It's great that you seem to have gotten a lot of work done there. With all of that galvanized by the arrival of your new furnace, or at least getting the right one installed. Treat that as a benefit because that one will serve you well, whatever the weather may bring you. In any way, good going. Thanks for sharing that! All the best!

  2. Placing that furnace in your sewing room would be very helpful feel warm during cold weather. It would enable you to finish your sewing project comfortably. I hope everything in your sewing room is in order now. Have a nice day!
