Welcome to the studio

Through the years, I have made many studios for doing all different kinds of artwork. Two years ago, I was blessed to be able to turn my unused living room into a studio. I use it for quilting, drawing, painting, card making and everything except my silkscreen work which I do in the basement. I added Kraftmaid cabinetry on two sides of the room, a sitting area on stools by the window, a writing/laptop desk, and shelves with undercounter lights.
Here are some shots of the studio-

I recently sold my new sewing machine and have purchased vintage singers because they piece and quilt exactly as I need them to and they are a joy to use. I use the 301s for free motion quilting and have a project on each one. I use the 401 for zig-zag and the 403 for straight piecing. This way each machine, the right foot, the right stitch plates and controls are ready to use. I just bought a 99 and a Spartan which I will show later. I found a lot of links that helped me select and clean them up like

Just the nicest 301!
