We're both voracious readers including all magazines and books on art quilts, knitting, crocheting, scrapbooking, and various crafting techniques. We're especially fond of Quilting ARts and Cloth Paper Scissors for the various techniques they include.
The reading has inspired us to try to set up easy to use and well laid out work spaces. Mine was the second bedroom until my fiance moved in and we've split the workspace in half -- imagine putting into storage and/or sorting through items to get rid of (will I ever really use that pile of 1" or shorter miscellaneous pieces of fabric and ribbon?).... It was painful to say the least but I've made it work somehow.
Sue has been using her dining room with a fabulous storage area in the 2nd bedroom. But the occupant of her house would like the spread contained so to speak... thus the basement studio is born! It's in the midst of being setup (those paying jobs get in the way of course). More on these later.... we're both trying to setup up some organized/innovative ways to keep it organized.
