Where I Sew Month – 2014

on Jul 1, 2014 in Sewing, Where I Sew | 31 comments

Where we create can be just as much fun to plan, organize and dream about as What we plan to make there! This is the spirit behind Where I Sew month here on the Pink Chalk Studio blog.

During July we’ll be taking a virtual tour and sharing a peek at the sewing spaces of some of our favorite designers and sewing enthusiasts. Real spaces where real people sew. This year’s line up of contributors will knock your socks off, I’m so excited I can hardly stand it!

To add a little fun to the mix be sure to comment all month long – 50 lucky sewists will win a $20 Pink Chalk Fabrics Gift Certificate to stock their own sewing room stash. Yes, we’re giving away $1,000 worth of fabric, patterns and notions! The more you comment the better your odds.

How to add your picture to the mosaic:

  • Press the ‘Add Your Link’ button at the bottom of the mosaic.
  • Enter a URL. This can be a blog post where you’ve given us a tour of your sewing room or a link to a photo of your sewing space on Flickr or a Picasa album (Facebook doesn’t seem to want to work!).
  • You’ll then select a specific picture from that source to appear in the Where I Sew mosaic.
  • Don’t worry about messing up. You can always remove it and do it again!

Grab a button:

Pink Chalk Studio

Troubleshooting this code: if you do not see the button appear after you cut and paste the code, your browser may have turned the straight quotes into curly quotes or added extra curly quotes so you’ll see a set of straight quotes followed by a set of curly quotes (no idea why it does this – very crazy!). Be sure they’re all straight and/or remove the extras.

  4. Just moved and now my studio is an 11 x 12 bedroom instead of 1000 sq ft – love to see ideas of other studios that are tight on space but super-functional.

  16. Such a cool series. My sewing space also doubles as an office and guest room. Spare room needs to multitask in our house!

  17. So great to get inside other sewing rooms and browse around for inspiration – I’m sure I’ll be green with envy but it’s good to no longer be quilting on the kitchen table either.
