Organizing my studio Cabinet of Curiosities

Studio Cabinet


Happy New Year everyone!

I was inspired by my recent video with Tricia Fidler to work on my studio and get it reset for the new year. (If you didn’t see the video, it’s worth a watch and you can find it here.) In particular she talked about “personal power spots” in our creative spaces (or anywhere in our homes really). They are spots that get us inspired, containing things we love, with collections and anything that helps us feel sparks of joy.

Fern, my black studio cabinet, is definitely my personal power spot (my husband would argue that I have several of these spots around our house, but Fern is my favorite one). In my newest video, I shared how I cleaned and “reset” Fern for the new year, and I share some of my collections of vintage sewing notions in the process.

    Thanks, Blair for sharing Fern and your process. I love it!

    I’ve been meaning to ask you what are the dimensions of your sewing studio.

    If you recall, I’m in the process of designing to brand new studio for myself, with our house rebuild, after the fire we had in April 2021, and I want to make sure it’s big enough. 😉

      Colleen, you should definitely make it big enough, I am fully in support of grabbing all the space you can! I am so excited for you! I believe the dimensions of my studio are 14′ x 20′, the same dimensions as my Seattle studio basement minus 1 foot widthwise because our initial plans had to be tweaked. Because it was basically the same size as my old space, I was able to draw our areas on graph paper for different work areas as it was being build, which helped tremendously.
