A look at what is going on in the Thread Shed this week:
I am working with the Bernina.
The machine sits on a computer desk
on a lower keyboard shelf.
The thread stand
is mounted on the back of the sewing machine.
I can use spool and cone threads
and they all feed properly with this stand.
A chest of drawers sits to the right of the machine…
It holds sewing machine supplies…
Everything is easy to reach when I need it.
Then I can close it all up at the end of the day.
To the right of the machine is another chest of drawers.
This holds sewing machine attachments,
bobbin cases, manuals, etc.
The book case on the right holds my thread stash…
Match Box Car plastic cases
hold all the small spool threads…
Larger plastic cases below
hold the cone threads for the Sweet 16 Machine.
I am able to sit at the machine
and have everything within an arm's reach.
Light is so important…
especially at night and when sewing on black fabrics with black thread.
I have a Brite Lite attached to my machine,
A table light behind the machine,
A floor stand light in front of the machine.
I can sew a lot longer if I don't experience eye strain.
Directly across from the sewing machine is the design wall.
I can get some distance between me and the design.
I can look at my next project
while I am working on the current one.
Gotta have the tunes and the tube!
I can view tutorial videos,
then go to the machine and try the technique.
One of 3 cutting tables sits in front of the design wall…
Makes it easy to trim pieces
and put them up on the wall as I work.
View from the cutting table…
Depending on the time of day,
I can see cattle, horses, goats, elk, eagles…
The Sweet 16 Sit-Down Long Arm Machine
is to the left of the design wall.
I am finishing up table runners this week…
This is what the Thread Shed looks like this week.
Next week I am screen printing…..this place will be a wreck!
