Welcome to our final wrap up issue of the FaveCrafts Craft Rooms Exposed series! As part of our monthly craft question round up, every day this week we’ve been featuring the inside of a famous craft designer’s craft room. Did you miss a room? Don’t worry – we’ve compiled a list of featured designers at the bottom of this post.
But before we get to those, we’d like to offer a few more amazing tips and tricks from some of the most talented people in the crafting industry. Here’s to an organized 2012!
Maureen Wilson, Made By Marzipan
Check out how Maureen organizes her craft room in the video below. So many great storage ideas!
Benita Skinner, Victoriana Quilt Designs
Benita shared a post with us that includes several projects I know you’ll love. You will find out how to make a quick sewing machine cover, a needle book from a lovely piece of ribbon, and use old tins to help with additional storage. Don’t miss her great ideas and tips.
Carol Heppner, Heppner Studios
As a professional craft designer, I do have a lot of supplies from different craft companies. So, my supplies are kept by company and not by the type of supply. This way, when a company hires me to create a project for them, I have all the supplies I need in that company’s box. Whenever possible, everything is stored in clear plastic containers in my studio’s closet. While my home’s decor is traditional, my studio filled with over-the-top creative inspiration. The chair in the center of the room was a piece I created out of chair with a missing back. Now, it’s been re-purposed into a functional piece of artwork. My niece loves sitting in this chair when she visits and is also inspired to be creative.
Don’t miss the other amazing craft rooms we toured this week. There are so many awesome ideas for organization!
