Sewing Studio in Progress!!


The boyface and I are moving into our new apartment within a week! I'm so excited. Not only do I have a gloriously large and open kitchen which is so sunny and bright (and full of decorating possibilities!) but I also get the 2nd bedroom to myself for my Sewing Studio! I've already got a majority of the set-up planned, and finally found some new things to really complete the look I'm going for. Check these out! (and don't mind the horrible cell phone shots.. I was too excited to grab the real camera!)

This is an antique bar. The top opens completely and the little front part folds down so there is plenty of sewing space. I'm pondering putting one of my machines here. And just check out the bottle spots where I can keep mason jars of notions and supplies. Plus, there are built in shelves just to the left where I can store other bits and bobs and my fabric, of course!

And then there's this beauty. I don't know too much about her yet, but she's seems tough and she still works!

Aside from setting up shop, I've also been on the hunt for some new inspiring fabrics and found some while thrift shopping, and some great ones online. I've also been working on some promo stuff. I've been thinking of setting up a Facebook page for Sew Serious Designs and offering the first so many (read: can't yet decide) fans the option of receiving a little free promo-pack in the mail. This is just in the thought stages... any feedback would be much appreciated.

Well friends, I'm off to relax and and maybe do some dishes..

Peace & Love,

Sew Serious Designs Re-opening!

Store Re-opening in March 2012!

Why hello friends! It's been what seems like forever since I've updated my blog, but great things are coming next month.

I am currently working on new designs and products that I'll be putting up in the shop within the next few weeks. I am designing a new and gorgeous studio that will be filled with inspiration, bright open sunny windows, excellent art pieces from fellow artists and I know that it is going to inspire wonderful new designs.

Sewing is what I've always loved to do, and after a few years of some chaos, a surgery and some random health problems, I am ready and eager to do what makes me happy!Keep an eye out here on the blog for more fun specials and giveaways. I also have plans for a Re-opening special offer, which I will give more details about later.

In the meantime, thanks for stopping by Sew Serious, and I truly appreciate your support!

Peace & Love,
Rachel Rae
