Ooo!

Ooo! What a beautiful sewing room! I'm working on mine and while looks similar in some ways, it's not nearly as amazing as yours. Even though my sewing room is not finished it's certainly my happy place. When I walk through the door I feel ideas start swirling in my head. Ahh, to be in my space and create something beautiful! You have some GREAT ideas for storage and if you don't mind I'm gonna borrow them. ;)  Well done!  Deborah

Possible Labeling Technique? Paint Thinner and Laser Printing

I found this and thought I'd share since I see a lot of you ask about labeling your garments and anything you might make to sell.  I am concerned about applying paint thinner to synthetics - so please do a test before you try this on ANY FABRIC.  Please don't send me a photo of a ruined project. ;)
