Here is my sewing area. I am blessed to have a whole room to use as my creative space. I am constantly reorganizing, moving things around and adding new finds! Most of the furniture is from Ikea and yard sales. The most recent pictures are on top.
The top of my sewing desk is made from a standard hollow-core door, that we brought from our old house. I wrapped it in a tablecloth I found on clearance at Target. The side storage units are from Ikea.
My machine is an old style Bernina 830. It belonged to my Oma (grandma). She came to the USA from Holland after WWII. She had ten children and sewed most of their clothing. My Oma is the one who taught me how to sew. I love working with this machine and thinking of her.
My cutting area is made of two Ikea kitchen islands that my sweet husband carried up to the 2nd floor of our house. The back unit has 4 rows of drawers, where I keep most of my fabric.
I also have a wonderful Bernina Serger. This beauty was given to me by my wonderful mom. I am still learning how to use it, but am very proud that I can successfully thread it and it has not made me cry yet. You can't imagine how glorious it is to not have to press and fold every seam. So there it is, my sewing space, I hope you enjoyed the tour!
