A - Z : M = Mobilier

Comment meubler un atelier de couture pour faire du quilting ?
I know, I cheated, Mobilier means furniture, but I'm allowed to use French words in the AtoZ Challenge, right? ;) 
So, how to furnish a sewing and quilting studio?

Idéalement, on trouve dans l'atelier une table de couture (sewing table), une table de coupe (cutting table), et une table de repassage (pressing station).
A dreamy sewing studio has a sewing table, a cutting table, and a pressing table.

Il existe des petits meubles tout-en-un, pliables pour gagner de la place :
There are small all-in-one furniture, foldable to gain space:

  3. great ideas - I wish I had room for a large pressing station but I make due with a tiny square on top of a cabinet or set the iron up in the kitchen and walk back and forth

    1. Yep, I know this kind of "sewing place"! I used to live in a sailboat, and the space was really tiny ;)

  4. Great ideas for your sewing studio. I used Buzzinbumble's idea of the book case with an extra board that is covered. Works great for me.

  5. I have made only one quilt top and then had it quilted by a Mennonite church group that charged by the spool of thread. What a deal! I love quilts but just can't get into making them.

    1. Not so easy to deal with the space we have, but even in a small place it's great to move things to work well. The perfect set-up is the one working for you ;))

  8. Lots of nice photos.For my cutting station I used an interior door, covered drywall with batting and heavy cotton. Placed the covered drywall on top of the door and cutting mat on top. If I want to press a quilt I remove the cutting mat.

  10. Very dreamy possibilities here! I tend to just use what's on hand and make it work. So far, so good!

  11. I wish... I cut on the floor or the dining room table.

    I'm mending my quilt directly on the bed. Have to remember to check for needles and pins before getting under the covers!

  14. My best friend is a quilter I'm sending her right over to your blog! Excellent stuff here and thanks for the translations. My grade school French is no more :-)

  15. I keep meaning to get my husband to make me a great pressing board, and always forget to bring it up. I like to keep my ironing board a good little distance away from the sewing machine, because it's so bad for our longterm health to sit for long periods. At least this way I get a wee bit of walking around every few minutes.

  16. I think the only rule is to go via the alphabet. They haven't specified that it must all be in English, so I think you're fine. Nice setup for a room. Ah, to have a dedicated crafting room...

    1. Can be useful to use other language in the Challenge ;) Since I started to quilt, it's only been 5 years since I have a dedicated sewing room... so good ;)

  18. Of course it's okay to use French. Thank you for the translation. Last year, two bloggers used languages/words other than English - one used Afrikaans, the other used Sanskrit words.

    Beautiful photos and ideas in your post. All the best for the rest of the challenge.
