Yes, I've gone and done it again! Now waiting for delivery of my latest purchase - a Martelli Bella Sedere (Italian for sit down) long arm quilting machine - and now must figure how to acquire the required floor space in my sewing studio without knocking out walls! Yes, I've really done it now and my Martelli is seriously jockeying for floor space.
Since I'll be getting a new pressing board delivered with the quilting machine, I quickly sold my changing table pressing station. That gave me a few additional square feet. And in its space, mounted on the wall, the cannot-live-without 7' x 4' design wall.
I'll miss seeing my M*A*S*H poster but had quite a surprise when we moved the design wall from its original place to find a long forgotten 2004 Jazz Festival poster featuring Harry Connick, Jr.
I'll also be taking out the current cutting station and will be using the new cutting area that is a part of the Martelli table. Did I mention that the table height can be adjusted up and down, tilts too....by just the pressing of a button. I can either sit or stand while quilting and can adjust the height while cutting and pressing. Love this feature.
I've dropped the leaf on my Horn sewing table for a few more feet. I can always raise it on as-needed basis while piecing/sewing on my Juki. But for now, I'm loving the streamlined look of the studio.
We moved my Grandmother's antique handmade cypress kitchen cupboard down a few feet to accommodate the Martelli. Inch by inch.....jockeying for floor space.
and here's the space, all ready for delivery.....
I'm so excited and can hardly wait.
