I have been sewing since I was 10 (WOW, 60 years!!!!). I did mostly garment sewing with a little home decoration thrown in for many years. Then 15 years ago, I walked into the newly opened Ragtime Fabrics and Belle and staff introduced me to machine embroidery! I was off and running!!!! Machine embroidery is a blessing to me since I have loved to make quilts but I could no longer piece small pieces due to tremors from a spinal injury in 1992. Quilting in the hoop has opened a whole new world to me and have made many quilts in these past 15 years.
I am blessed to have met Belle and her girls and have learned so very much from them over the years! I just purchased the new Solaris which was my 8th machine from Ragtime Fabrics! You will see pics of the five I have now! I must also add that I have an amazing husband, Bob, who makes all my cabinets and tables. You will see all that he has done for me in the past few years! My room is pink and yellow in honor of my grandmother who was color blind and could not tell the difference between the two colors! She would love it or hate it, not so sure!!!!
I hope you enjoy the photos SEW much!!!
I love these cabinets. Bob made these from sassafras wood and they are a work of art. Before, I had plastic drawers on rollers that I would tend to overload, and they would collapse on me! The small drawers hold supplies and tools and the four larger bottom drawers hold a project each; either one I am working on or one that is next on the list. One of the cabinets holds my Sashiko and Evolution Serger. I move them to the cutting table when I use them, so I have a large work surface. You also see more sewing thread and a TV.
Here is an overall view:
