Friends have asked me about how I re-arranged my Quilt Studio since I got the long-arm. Where did I put my cutting table that lived where the long-arm now resides?
I had to move the sewing-machine table up along the wall and the card-making station back along the wall to make room for the cutting table. Yes, that is a card table under the cutting table. It provides me with a shelf and a place to store the card table!
This is looking from the long-arm room past the card-making section, the cutting table, the sewing table, into the sitting area where I have a comfy chair, a desk, a settee, and of course my big TV. I am so lucky to have all this room. And this is only half of the basement. The other half is storage and the necessary stuff – furnace, laundry, etc.
My big project today was to tear down the boxes, fill up my recycle bin, stack up what didn’t fit for next week’s pickup.
After that chore was done, I re-loaded my new long-arm with more practice fabric. I’m getting to be an expert on loading. Now I need to work more on the actual quilting – and also adjusting the tension. It is very, very hot outside in my part of the world, so it was nice to work in my cool basement.
