Last year we built a studio. I named it Heartsong Threads. It is 20' x 23' and features 18 ft. of design wall which covers my storage shelves. I included a double sink so that I can dye fabric. It has French doors that open to a 12' x 20' screened porch. My husband and I can enjoy the outdoors without the bother of mosquitoes. The studio works! Another feature that I love are 2 rollout cabinets where I store thread and special fibers. They become wonderful surfaces for paint projects and sorting the threads I want to use.

What a great working space , most nice studios look like a interior designer set it up that one looks like someone who has work to do set it up :)

Thanks. I absolutely love my space! I was inspired by an article on Carol Taylor's studio. Her design wall looked perfect. I just took it from there.

Thank you. One of my favorite things to do is open up the French doors and listen to the outdoors while I work. Although when it gets really hot and humid, it is best to use the ac and listen to music. I have a wonderful sound system.

AH!  Yes a sound system is THE most important unseen tool for quilters.  I just set mine of shuffel and let it go.  Funny on days when I am feeling low it will shuffel and play Christmas music all day.  Who can feel down with Christmas music even if it is in June. *smile*

You still have me with the screened porch.  Sounds devine.

happy summer

Really nice space.  I often think about putting doors in my room so I can walk out on the deck and take a break.  My DH just rolls his eyes at that idea.  :)

What a fabulous space! You thought of everything from the design board to sink and the outdoors!  And what a great name!

Thank you. I haven't been back to the site for a while. Life just keeps on happening. I have spent lots of time in the studio, though. I still absolutely love it. It helps me work, and the work gets better because of the space.
