Welcome to Pat's Sewing Room

There is so much to be learned from fellow quilters...and when you visit them in their space you can't help but absorb tips, decorating/storage idea and excitement.  I was surprised to learn that as prolific a quilter that Pat is...she sews on old Singers...the collectible kind!  She has a affinity for the Singer featherweight.  Which means there is no computerized fancy sewing machine in her sewing room.  Where she lives is peaceful and conducive to stitchery.  And one can only imagine the ideas that float out of all that peace and quiet.



Her sewing room is in a separate building accessed by a covered walkway from the main house.

Welcome to Pat's Sewing Space...take time to run the slide show more than once to get wonderfully creative ideas on how this quilter manages her world!

  5. Lots of great ideas! I must say, though, that while I do love a Featherweight, I am very very fond of my knee lift! Both my 1230 and my Brother 1500S (which is just an oversized Featherweight, as it only sews straight stitch!) have them--my third hand! The machine I learned to sew on was my mom's industrial machine and even it had a knee lift! I don't need, or want, embroidery freatures, just give me a good stout motor and a knee lift!

  8. What a wonderful creative inspiring space. Thank you so much for sharing this delightful lady and her private retreat.

    She is so inspiring. I love the piece with the heart and angel and home. I may have to adapt that to reflect my style.

    Thanks once again for sharing Anna.

  17. Wow! Never thought I'd see another quilter use her Longaberger baskets for storage like I do! I think she has almost as many baskets as I do! What an inspirational retreat for sewing - thanks to Pat for allowing you to share her space with us!

    1. I love baskets but had never heard of Longaberger baskets...but seems from the responses that I saved myself a whole lot of money and addiction by my ignorance, lol
