Where I Sew – Bari J. Ackerman

on Aug 2, 2013 in Where I Sew | 55 comments

I am a fabric, sewing pattern and surface designer. I love to create. And, I love to share ideas and dreams with other creative people. The Bari J. brand debuted in 2004 featuring handbags and accessories. In 2009 I changed the focus of the business to fabric and surface design and sewing patterns. My first book, Inspired to Sew, shipped to stores in January 2011. My fabric collections (Art Gallery Fabrics) and line of “Keeping it Real” sewing patterns are available in stores throughout the world.

  6. I really life the shelves in the legs of the table in the foreground. Looks like it just the right size – not too big, nor too small.

  15. Looks like a fabulous space. Love the high ceilings. The high ceilings gave you the ability to put so much on the wall.

  19. I’m amazed how neat it looks. My sewing room is always messy and a lot more crowded. When I moved into it, I loved the spaciousness, but I seem to have filled it up!
