I welcome you to my workshop!
I want to show you how everything here is arranged
I hope my experience will bring you value!
I think, all of us face the same problem – a lack of space
And we try to make the most of every inch of our working area in order to make it more convenient and functional
In addition, you should be able to wrap it all up fast and to be ready for accepting a client. He or she should come into a nice and clean place and enjoy the fitting and your company
I want to show you how I turn my workshop into a working area and how, in just a few minutes, I'm wrapping it all back and ready to welcome a client
As you probably noticed, all of my accessories, equipment and furniture are mobile, on small wheels
It all moves or folds
Even my writing board has wheels
That means my workshop can be arranged the way I want
I want to show you this wonder, which I purchased in IKEA and equipped for myself
There is a cork board for all kind of notes… The mirror you already saw…
And this is a kitchen handler with hooks where I hang this folder for all the rulers, boards, patterns
All the long, flat, non-standard things, which are hard to store, I keep in this folder
These crates are unbelievably convenient!
I keep here all the equipment for the ironing
And these crates I equipped for my own needs
Here I have bobbins… all kind of stuff… a working mess, what can I do?
All the scissors, markers, disappearing pens, pencils, luneville hooks, all kinds of sewing foots, glue – everything you can imagine I have concentrated in one place
These crates are extremely large
They contain a huge amount of any small things that you need to keep together and to know where to find them
That was the stand
Next I want to show you other chests of drawers, which are custom made for my workshop, because I don't have any space or corners where I could place a cupboard
Lots of drawers - lots of storage possibilities
So here I have threads and ribbons, each hue has a drawer
Here I have zippers
Here – bias tapes and the equipment for making them…
Of course, I already learned what I have in each box, but you can put labels
I consider these chests of drawers as the most spacious storage
Next, as you saw, I have this foldable table
Originally this was a picnic table
I covered it with a special material to protect it from our sewing instruments
Whatever falls on the table, it won't damage it
You can stick pins in it, which is also very convenient
Those of you, who joined my courses, noticed that I cover the table with an underlay and cotton fabrics, and this entire table becomes an ironing surface
You can place an additional ironing board if you like
From all the small stuff I want to brag about this little thing
I think every sewer must have one!
This is a great saver of our precious time!
Look – it's a thread cutter
Wherever you are, you'll always have a thread cutter with you
It happens a lot that we run around the workshop and cut threads here and there
This little thing cuts very close to the edge, very convenient
I recommend it!
In addition I want to show my hand made DIY accessories, which are pleasing the eye, and, at the same time, give the charm to the workshop
This case covers the sewing machine and hides it, say, from your client's sight
And this case for the iron, which I made from a simple shoes box
Very convenient – here I have the ironing fabric. Always here - now I don't need to search for it all over the place
And the iron fits in perfectly with its hose and wires
And, of course, we have big equipment, our fabric holdings and all kind of accessories
I found the solution in these cabinets
Behind this thatched curtain are:
Boxes with fabrics, various rolls of fabrics, patterns and boxes with mock-ups… and lots of stuff… all of our holdings
The cabinet is deep, about 80 cm. You can put a lot of things in there
And in the similar cabinet on the other side I keep my overlock
You may ask: where does Tatiana keep her overlock, stitching machine, household sewing machine?
It's all hidden inside those cabinets
Well, dear colleague, I'm very happy that you visited me!
And I feel that you and I became a little bit closer!
Sincerely yours, Tatiana Kozorovitsky
See you in the next videos!
