Video: Sewing room tour

September 17, 2017 4 Comments

Let’s take a look at my new upgraded sewing room. Or my sewing corner to be exact – I’m still sewing in the living room. But as you can see I’m able to pack a lot of sewing things into that corner of the living room. The backstory to my expansion is that we made a switcheroo in August which let me have a larger portion of the living room dedicated to my sewing. So if you are curious about how I’ve been able to create a fully functional workspace in such small confinements, then I think this video could be worth watching 🙂

    Hi Johanna, thank you very much for your fantastic videos which I love to watch on Sunday afternoon! I wonder if you use a rotary cutter to cut your fabrics, I was planning on asking for a rotary cutter and cutting mat for my coming birthday!

      Yes, I use the Fiskars ergonomic rotary cutter for most of my cutting. It took a while to learn how to use it, but it saves so much time, plus getting those sharp edges is a nice thing too. I would put those on your wish-list for sure, I think you will love them (just give it a little time to learn) Happy birthday in advance!
