The sewing room is also our guest room, and Scott took old cherry bookshelves, painted them white, and installed them for my threads, sewing machines, and everything else. I love those wooden spool holders to organize thread, and jars filled with buttons. I can't walk by vintage luggage at garage sales and thrift stores without buying them. They are perfect for storing tons of zippers, tools, and yarn.
The coffee bar in the studio is shared by Scott for keeping brushes clean and for an extra shot of espresso during a long design binge. My friend Kelly Georgette Phelps from The Spotted Fox made the cute teacup pincushion. She and I used to work at Simplicity in Nashville. The canister filled with vintage coffee cups is the one I made when taping the Magazine Rollups Video on my Youtube channel.
Plastic shoe boxes from the dollar store are great for organizing tons of small bits for mixed media art.
