Where I Sew

Kathy is having a Where I Sew linky party, so I am posting this photo of my sewing tables.  I am ashamed to say that this is what it always looks like.


This is where Bea sews.  It’s on the wall to the side of my tables so I can keep an eye on her crafting or she can do her homework while I sew.


And just yesterday I borrowed back my first sewing machine that I let my friend borrow when she wanted to learn to sew.


It’s so cute, with purple knobs, but it sews so FAST!!!!  There is just no way to sew slowly on this machine, which is one of the reasons I never sewed much until I got my newer machine.  The plan is that I am going to sell both of these machines and buy Bea a Janome DC1050.  On that model the speed is adjustable and it has a needle up/down function.


Everybody is hard at work sewing and coloring this morning!


  1. That is so neat that the girls have a place to craft while you sew, great room!

  2. You should spray paint the chairs hot pink!

  3. oh, how fun! I love Bea's work station, wonderful idea, Jamie!

  4. Is this the reupholstered chair that you made? It looks great! But why should you be ashamed? I see a huge sewing space, lots of fun fabric and scraps, happy girls, a real place for _working_. It´s too dark now to take decent pics of my sewing space but the sofa in our guest/craft room/office is completely covered in fabrics.

  5. You and I have the same Janome MC 6500!! Don't you love it! I had a Kenmore vintage machine before which worked just fine,but could have used a little more bells and whistles:) That is really sweet of you to get your Bea a new machine--how fun!

    Love that you have an area for your girls!


Some days the only adult I talk to is my husband...help him keep his sanity by leaving a comment so I have another adult to talk sewing with:) I will make sure to reply!
