Designed to a “T” – Sewing Studio

November 12th, 2010

When I first opened Jaynie Gamble’s email to see her sewing room studio, I must say I was instantly in disbelief and then suddenly jealous. lol  Just kidding…. not really….

Jaynie says she designed her sewing room along with the entire house. Her husband built their home with the occasional help from friends & family which made it all the easier for her to make sure she got it exactly how she wanted it.  She wants for nothing in her new home and sewing studio…As you can totally see!

Jaynie has this to share ” Hubby is retiring in December so we will have plenty of time now to do all those finish jobs…..oh did I tell you he did all that building while working full time, 12 hour rotating shifts, 30 miles away…….he is a keeper!!!

She also hosts a “retreat” for two of her quilting gal pals every year when hubby goes on his motorcycle trip.

Now about her thoughts on the design of her room “I showed two pictures of the cutting center because I designed it with “drop ends” on both ends which change the top from 4 x 4 ft. to 4 x 8 ft.  My design wall is three 4 x 8  foam insulation boards covered with batting & screwed to the wall which gives me 12 ft wide design wall.  I decided to have a sink area for clean up when doing other crafts, which comes in really handy.  We also decided on the ironing surface on top of storage instead of conventional ironing board….I am loving that, just covered the top with one layer of batting, then canvas.”

What an excellent room, I must say! Thanks so much for sharing with us, Jaynie & hope you guys had fun at Festival!!

    Jaynie did a wonderful job designing her sewing studio. Love the big design wall with the lights. I’ve given up on traditional sewing boards also. It works so much better to cover a table with batting and fabric.

    Very nice sewing area! I am sure you just live in there, I know I would if I had that nice a room. Mine sewing areas are in about every room of the house but mostly live in basement with my Gammill named Dixie, after my grandmother. Just love quilting!

    Wow! I hope to be able to convert a room someday to a quilt room or studio! I don’t have a place to have a design wall, and that design wall is awesome. Not to mention those antique sewing machines – so beautiful!!!!

    I love you cutting table with the drop ends, what a space saver. Could you tell me what your husband used for the top of the cutting table? I would love to make one just like it for my room. It would save me so much space. Thanks for sharing, it’s a wonderful and useful room. Enjoy!!!

    I also love the cutting table. Can you provide details on size of this? I am in an 8×10 bedroom and this would be PERFECT!

    Very nice. I’d like to think if we build our next home that I can include a sewing room/craft room. I can’t complain since right now I have good size room now but haven’t quite figured out a good layout but I’m working on it. It’s fun to see how others have their rooms set up.

    Please share dimensions of the drop leaf table and other information regarding the other tables. I absolutely love this.

    Beautiful room!!! I notice that the sewing machine is set into the counter at the very edge. Is it easier to work with it closer to you, than the way it’s set into the name brand cabinets?

    Love your design! Please share details of that awesome cutting table. That is exactly what I need. We talked about attaching a table to the wall that would drop down when needed but your idea is better as you have options on the size using one or both drop leaves. Please share details!!

    I love the layout. What are the dimensions of the room? Looking at remodeling our home and am in the thought process of how I want my sewing room to be. Thanks
