I avoid photos of dream sewing studios, knowing full well I will never invest that kind of money in a room, barring a million dollar inheritance. My 12 by 14 foot room has a closet, two windows, and several electrical outlets. Most of the last seem to be located behind furniture. How does that happen?
I had worked for four years with a furniture arrangement that seemed a reasonable compromise. Then, about three weeks ago I realized if I moved my work table I could get much more natural light and more open space to maneuver around the table. So, with the help of my husband and the vacuum cleaner I made the change. Now, there isn’t a dark area between the windows, and the ceiling light isn’t behind me when I work at the table.
If that weren’t enough, my husband replaced the light bulbs with newer, energy saving bulbs that shed more light. He also gave me a holiday gift early – a string of LED lights for my sewing machine. They’re from Inspired LED. It’s like I have a runway for my fabric.
