Organizing That Craft Studio, a Possible Resource I Hope!

Blogged under Design Ideas by Tammy on Sunday 22 February 2009 at 10:07 am

I just ordered this special issue from the Interweave magazine, Cloth Paper Scissors. According to the blurb on its web site, “Cloth Paper Scissors brings you a special issue dedicated to creating beautiful, inviting, unique, and functional studios for making collages, quilts, handmade books, and other types of fiber and mixed-media art.”

Here is what looks like the Table of Contents for this issue, again from the web site:

With shipping, it came to $13, so even if I get just a few good ideas, I think that’s worth the price. It doesn’t come out until Summer 2009, so that means it’s pre-orders only right now. Considering the pace I’m at getting this studio in shape, I think I can wait.

    I’ve been slowing reorganizing since the summer. I figure I don’t need to be on any specific time table for it, as long as I see some progress. Whenever I do have a break from school, I try to accomplish small goals related to it, and I have seen some progress. It is so much easier to work when you have a well-organized (or in my case semi-organized) space.
