I’m Ashley Newcomb and I blog about quilting at Film in the Fridge. My sewing space occupies a third of our living room, so that I can take every opportunity to sew, yet still be with the family. My 2 year old son, Max, often plays with his toys on the floor nearby while I sneak in a bit of fabric cutting or some quick piecing.
Since I am most often making quilts, I like having my fabrics easily accessible – I keep many favorites stored in the cabinet you can see in the left part of this photo, and all my solid fabrics stored under the large sewing table. The table was custom made (a trade for a quilt, in fact!) and fits two large cutting mats on one side and my sewing machine and computer on the other. Despite the limitations of having my sewing space right in the middle of our home (mostly dust and lots and lots of threads!), I love how easy it makes it for me to sneak in a few minutes of sewing here and there throughout the day!
