Sewing Related Collections


This group of old scissors were all either given or bequeathed to me. I love the designs, finishes and embossing on them.

None of them are really usable any more, but that is not why I enjoy them.


Almost every one of these buttons are one’s I either purchased or were given to me. None are antique or vintage. At least I don’t consider myself vintage so how could the buttons be?


Almost all this selection of buttons are vintage or antique.


These bookcases contain most of my fiber and art related books in my studio.


This bed and the trolleys under it store many quilts. Some are antique, some made by me and there are also some works in progress.


I was fortunate to find this antique thread cabinet at a local antique dealers shop. It holds old thread on wooden spools which are for decorative use only. It also holds almost all my thread.


And my largest collection of all – my fabric palette arranged in color order on these shelves.

I especially love how you have stored your quilts under the bed. That is so much nicer than folded and stacked on a closet shelf.

Love the under the bed quilt storage trolley. Did you make it or buy it?

how about turning some of those collections into fabric? looks like some dynamic texture and colour.

I love looking at how others organize their space and at their collections. Thanks for sharing.

The trollies are custom to fit the odd sized bed. Artists have palettes......quilters have stashes!!!
