Margaret Sindelar, a professional seamstress, was in desperate need of a sewing room makeover, but she didn't know where to start. Designer Pamela Porter stepped in to help.
Margaret stores her extensive collection of buttons in large jars displayed on shelves.
Pam had a petite garbage-can insert retrofitted into a small cabinet. The divided bins allow Margaret to sort scraps according to save for another project or discard.
Margaret's collection of pincushions sits nicely within reach on this pretty pedestal.
Margaret keeps magazines organized in metal bins with labels cut from magnetic ink-jet paper.
Pam gave this settee a quick makeover with a folded quilt on the seat and a floral cushion added to the back. She hung a balanced composition over the settee to make it a focal point.
Buttons in a range of sizes and pink hues spell out the room's purpose.
Knowing light is essential for any crafter, Pam had a bay window added to the family room and dressed sparingly to usher in natural light. Nine recessed lights highlight the room's charm after sunset.
