Four sewing room essentials to improve your productivity
If you love to sew and are fortunate enough to have a spare room in your house that can be devoted to the craft, you'll need to ensure that the space meets every one of your needs. But what exactly are the essentials for a well-equipped sewing room? Here are a few ideas to get you on the right track.
1. A spacious table. You'll certainly need a place to spread out your materials and actually get down to business, and a large workspace will provide that.
2. A comfortable chair. When you're putting the finishing touches on that garment or painstakingly stitching a complicated project, you don't want your rear end going numb on an uncomfortable chair. Look for plenty of cushioning.
3. Roller shades for windows. When the room gets a bit dark or the sun starts bothering you, all it takes is a small tug to adjust these window treatments, then you're back to work. Solar Shades are perfect for reducing glare, but not eradicating your view.
4. Plenty of storage. You don't want the sewing room to fall victim to loose thread, yards of fabric and dangling ribbons, so make sure each item has a proper place to be stored. You'll also be able to find things more easily.
