  • Re: Welcome to the Studios Forum

    Hi, I'm chiming in again on this thread as I do appreciate the feedback. "Clutter" is indeed a relative term. Me? I like a lot of visual enticement and do just fine by clearing a space for the process at hand. My husband, who draws, must have everything just so before he begins. However...

    Kathy: My studio is a sunroom, three walls of windows and four skylights, and really minimal wall space. It was featured in the very first Studios issue if you to see how I cope with the storage issue. I do have two bookshelves that are filled with fabric and I used tension rods at the top of each and...

    Welcome Kathy, I work in a sun room a lot. I work mostly but hand but I have a sewing machine in there with an old tredle cabinet that has front doors. So when it is closed up it just looks like a normal piece of furnature. I only store small things in there. Everything else is stored in my studio that...

    For years, I couldn't come up with a way to store fibers that helps me find them when I need them or helps me to choose the best one for a project. The way I store them now has been working very well. I take old Christmas cards and cut the cover off. Then I take a fiber and start wrapping it around...

    Hi, Actually, we do show some normal, cluttered studios! Juliana Coles' and Rayna Gillman's studios in the Fall 2008 issue are two good examples. In the Spring 2009 issue, Jennifer Maestra has stuff out all over the place and Lesley Riley shows how her fabric is stuffed in open wire baskets all...

  • How do you label it?

    Hi everyone! I'm looking for fun ways to label things--boxes, jars, trays, and so on--in your studio. Do you print out sticky labels in a fun font? Use Scrabble tiles to spell out what's in a box? Handpaint the words? Draw a picture? Use a stamp? I'd like to feature pictures and brief descriptions...

    I absolutely love the Studios magazines! I've gotten so much inspiration from each one. My sewing room is actually part of my family room. I convinced DH to get rid of the dining room table and put my sewing table and everything else in there. Yesterday we went to IKEA and bought a $20 bookcase so...

  • Re: New Summer Studios Cover Revealed

    Ok, with a bit of a delay-I get sidetracked so easily- to see if these flat trays would work I sampled it using household-type stuff, one tray for shopping and one for Garden Club papers (notice small meat tray ordinarily used for fabric painting now temporarily holding plant markers). Looks good, and...

    I love the stackable sorting tray idea, Krys. Why don't you take a picture and post it here or on the Studios Pix page in our gallery? Keep those garden center storage ideas coming!

  • Re: New Summer Studios Cover Revealed

    too true; most of my quilt and art friends are gardeners of one sort of another so it's a good match. And I was just out participating in The Great Dandelion Hunt and using one of those bedding plant "flats" to put them in when it hit me what a wonderful stackable sorting tray it would...
