Coming Soon……..

I just said the big “Y” word.

Not Yakima, yellow or yacht. And certainly not Wyoming, silly.

I said, YES!

Yes to a new studio space. Yes to a new beginning. Yes to yet another adventure.


Isn’t this window cool!

The space has great ghosts. It was an artist’s studio for many years. Not only is it going to give me lots of room to spread out and sew, take photos, and film sewing classes, but it’s going to be a great place for the book launch party in September.

I’m beyond delightedΒ and I can’t wait for you to see it. I plan on doing loads of DIY projects and sharing with you along the way. So stayed tuned…..

Thanks for being excited with me.

    Squeal!! I’m so excited for you! I recently took over one of the bedrooms in our house and turned it into my sewing studio. It’s small (10×10), but I love it! Its so nice to have a designated space. I had my eye on the bigger bedroom with bay window and walk-in closet, but the kids won out…darn! I guess they’re more important than my hobby! πŸ™‚ I’ll be posting a “tour” of the studio soon. I can’t wait to see what you’ll do with yours! What a great way to begin your summer!! (I can see now why a trip to IKEA may be in your future.)

    • Thank you so much for squealing and jumping up and down with me, Susan! Sounds like you’ve been having fun getting your own studio together, too. I can’t wait to see it. And YES, this is exactly why I need to go to IKEA! I will let you know when I’ll be coming and maybe it’ll work out and we could have lunch together. One more day at school and then it’s SUMMER!!!!!! YAY!

  10. How cool! That IS a cute window. I wish I was close enough to visit your studio. I’ll be with you in spirit.

    I’ve been following along with your news, so exciting! I live the brick and arched window. Cant wait to see more! Do you have a you tube channel?

    • Thanks, Jilly! I have a very inactive you tube channel, that might get revived sometime. The sewing classes are actually going to be filmed for BurdaStyle. I just haven’t publicly announced that yet. Have a wonderful Sunday!

    I’m so pleased for you and your newest adventure. Since I stumbled onto your creativity on Pinterest…I’ve become the Renegade Seamstress stalker…err..that sounds scary…how about Renegade Seamstress Sewer :). Now it’s exciting when your email shows up in my mailbox because I know something fun and innovative waits. So, “Yes”…good for you!

    • Thank you so much for all of your encouragement, Tempe! It makes me happy that you enjoy what I do and more importantly, that it is helpful to you. People like you make my work so much more fun! Have a great weekend!

  25. Michelle Delgadillo says:

    I am SO EXCITED for you! What a Wonderful feeling that must be! I can’t wait to see many pictures. When you mentioned Yakima, I got a little excited. If you ever make your way to WA, please please please let us know so we can meet you! We’d be all the luckier to do so. Have a great day with your Kindergarteners and your sewing machine. πŸ™‚

    Beth – how exciting. I am so happy for you and can’t wait to see what you produce in all that great space! I am currently trying hard to make better use of the space I have – it’s currently a creative mess!!

    • Thanks, Debby! I hear ya on the creative mess thing!! My sewing adventures have taken over my little house and I think the studio will not only make me happy but my family can have their space back, too. πŸ™‚ Have a great weekend!

  31. This is a dream!! So excited for you. Congratulations!

    • Thanks so much, Trish! Now that I’m back from Minnesota, I can start work on the studio. It’s going to keep me very busy, but I’m looking forward to having lots of space to work (not to mention having my thrift store stash a bit more accessible, it was getting a little out of hand. πŸ™‚ ) Hope you’re having a wonderful summer!
