A friend on Facebook mentioned that she doesn’t like sewing facing the wall. Neither do I. Vince will stick his head in the door and say “Look at this!” If Addie’s in there doing something besides sewing with me, I should halfway keep an eye on her. I thought I had tried every possible way to place everything and then I thought of this: What if I turn two sets of fabric shelves back to back? It isn’t going to win me a cover spot on a home decorating magazine but I think it gives me a lot more room!
The longarm stayed in the same place. The one fabric shelf unit that’s right by the door stayed in the same place. The design wall is in front of the pocket doors. The cutting table is in front of the design wall and that makes it closer to the fabric.
Along the back, next to the longarm is the ironing table, then two sewing machine tables facing each other, then the little table that holds the coverstitch and serger machines.
It seems like this gives me room for the love seat and maybe room for an extra chair and a spinning wheel – especially if I can move the two fabric shelf units closer to the design wall – I could put a chair and spinning wheel there next to the door.
I have those fabric shelves drawn 2′ deep but they’re really 18″ so instead of 4′, they’re going to take up only 3′.
I think this works!
Tell me the truth – are those fabric shelves going to look bad sitting back to back?
