Remaking the Studio

Today I spent some time revising my studio work space. It feels so much more open with only one Longarm machine in the room. I decided to put the Juki sewing machine at the TV end. The Innova is pretty loud when it runs so I won’t have to turn it up so loud. I also moved my cutting table back in the room.

I still have a lot of stuff to sort through but it feels more organized. I need to pick out some paint and figure out what color or neutral to go with. Change is good. Winter is a great time of year to sort through it all and boy do I have some sorting ahead of me.

I can’t believe it has been 14 years since I started this venture. Here’s a photo of how much I got done today.

The Gammill is Sold

My Gammill Longarm machine has left Waterford. It is moving to Plymouth. The new owner, Anna, plans to start her own business. I wish her well on her new endeavor.

Getting your first Longarm machine is so exciting and a little over whelming. It will be a lot of fun for he learning the machine. It’s nice to share the joy of quilting with others.

This is the last quilt I quilted on the Gammill. It’s Cathys pineapples.
The quilting design is Two Simple.
I’ve got some space to fill now, cutting table, sewing machine, and ironing board should fill it up nicely.

What’s on the machine today

I’m finishing up the last work for the holiday. I was sidelined for a week with some back trouble but finally getting to where I can work again.

Here are some pretty quilts for clients, you know who you are. 🙂

The quilt pattern on this bright quilt is “Boing” an Ann Bright design, steel blue thread & I think Legacy batting.
