"Where Bloggers Create"

This is my first time on "Where Bloggers Create"
not sure I'm ready? (Lot's of cleaning, arranging and purging!)
Big Thank you to Karen from "My Desert Cottage" for doing this!


This is my antique jelly cupboard/ fabric storage unit, that I want to paint creme and "antique"

My Singer Featherweight and pincushions
 Singer collectibles
Thimble and small collection
Lots of stuff in progress...
The area to the left I use for hot gluing.
Top of shelves in Sewing room
Dress form, she holds my needles and pins!
Close up of my Singer collectibles, did I mention, I collect cloth tape measures as well?

My husband made the sewing tables for me with machines built in. I usually keep beige thread in the Izek and black in the other Singer. The futuristic Izek Singer is a 150th Anniversary machine that uses a Game boy for the stitch functions.
My sewing room. My machine is undercover, so is my serger!
My husband found this 4 drawer spool cabinet for me, it was painted totally black and he stripped it down and when we found the words were still on, I screamed. The other one we found at a fleatique!
 My fabric cutting room's other corner. Lots of ribbon rolls hanging above.
 I made the lamp shade for the Singer Lamp. Going to "antique" the Hoosier soon, too white!
 This big Singer was for upholstery.  I haven't tried it yet! And I've had it for years!

Love Singer Sewing Machines! Major Collector, here!

Closer view of my cutting table. It's a real old Singer table that I found a sale.

My cutting/storage room. I have taken over our entire basement for my sewing and crafting and storage! I still don't have enough space.

what a fun place to work..I can not sew anything that doesn't look like a five year old did it..that's why I paint and do decoupage. Come over and see what I do and my students have done in class.Vonda- Vondas Cabbages and Things

WOW from that photo with the dress hanging so invitingly in the entrance, I knew I would be drawn into your space. I am WILD about all your lace and trim, your antique collection's and if you pop by my blog you will know how I feel about your antique upholstery machine.
Keep smiling and creating, thanks for sharing

Oh my goodness you have the most wonderful things. I have a Singer machine base...but no machine. I love your room and how you display your collectibles!

Karen said...

LOL! I screamed too when I saw your spool cabinet!!!
OMG! What a great space.
And trust me, no matter how much room we have, there is always the need for more!!!! I give up - I got what I got and if it doesn't fit...SQUISH IT IN!

As long as you are happy in your space, that's what makes it awesome!

Great job! Really enjoyed the tour.

Jan E O said...

Love your space and all those old sewing machines are the best. I am not much of a seamstress, but I gave up my electric machine years ago and went back to the treadle machine I learned on. Great husband by the way to score those cabinets and refinish them as well.

Cheryl De Beer said...

Ag I love all your sewing machines really, love them! Also love your dress form, I tink this is something I need to add to my wish book. Love your space so much.

Vicki said...

My goodness do you have some treasures in there, especially that Singer collection. I can't believe the spool cabinet actually still had the words on it. Why on earth did someone ever paint over it? I would have screamed too. Such a great space. Thanks for sharing and stopping by to see me too.

myartsdesire said...

My heart is still racing over seeing your vintage thread chest!!! I can't believe that the lettering survived having the paint stripped. What an awesome place you've created for yourself! Your collections of vintage sewing items is second to none! I hope everyone enlarges your photos as there is so much wonderful detail in viewing your pics larger! I thought the work station your hubby built for you was so wonderful too!!! Thanks for a delightful tour! xo, Sue

Hi Thanks for stopping by and yes we do have the same taste and I have many old Singer items in my collection, I just need to put them in a grouping for better effect. I thought I would let you know a little about a couple of my machines. The child's Singer that in in my blog header and in my blog was mine as a child, and the Singer Featherweight was my Moms and when I was real young she gave it to me so I could make maternity clothes on it when expecting our first child, I still use it for straight stitching. I also have an old machine converted into a lamp! I plan on redoing my sewing room this coming year and making some fun and great changes. Hopefully before next years blog party! Your blog is great and I think I will go and be a follower. You know birds of a feather flock together! :) Hugs and have a great week! Marilou

Marilou of Lulu's Lovlies and Heartful Creations said...

Linda Carole Bloom said...

Hi,
I love your sewing room! And all your collectible things! I have always wanted a Featherweight, and both my grandma's used Singer treadles, but I don't know what happened to either of them.
I just toured Lovey's studio, and loved it. And I bought her book too! (I started at A, then switched to Z, now I'm going backwards.) Love, Linda

I just sent you an email to your old email address at uncletom@surfshop.net. I bought some of your things about 14 years ago. I am retired now and just wondered if you are still making wonderful things out of vintage fabrics etc. I am a sewer but not as talented as you. Seeing your things gives me inspiration. Since your last posting was in 2011 I hope you are still there. I would love to come to a craft show if you are still doing them. Roz Blair
