Before our last photoshoot lovely Jessica Wyld took a few photos of the current state of my workroom. I’m wearing the Eucalypt tank top I made from my screen printed fabric, and a pair of Tania culottes with pockets (I promise we’ll be releasing it soon!).
It’s become one of my favourite things over the last few years to document my changing workroom. This isn’t a huge space and it also doubles as our spare room (the couch is a fold out) so I am constantly trying to optimise my space and work as efficiently as possible and it’s so fun for me to look back and see how things have changed over time!
I think this is my favourite setup so far! I’ve really been enjoying the separation of sewing and working space. Last year I moved my computer onto a separate desk from my machines, and i’ve found that it’s made me so much more efficient in both areas. I have more room to spread out everything i’m working on when i’m at the computer, and it’s been fantastic having my sewing machine, overlocker and coverstitch sitting in row as i can basically just jump between them as needed. Chris doesn’t work from home much any more which has freed me up to completely take over the room, and i’m definitely enjoying the additional space (sorry darling haha!).
If you think everything is entirely too neat, don’t worry it does get messy when i’m sewing! Also a key thing for me have been the big white cupboards (not pictured) that i installed a few years ago. Honestly the key to a tidy workspace is having a giant cupboard you can shove the messy things into!
I really hope you’ve enjoyed this little peek at my workspace!
If you want to have a look at how i organised this space in the past here is my workroom in 2016, and back in 2015.
