Hobby Area Thought Starters
a nook where you nurture your creative side...
a cache for your collections...
your holiday workshop...
with plenty of room to step back and admire your work.
If more than one person will work here at a time, consider a worksurface approachable from at least two sides.
Integrate power access to operate a sewing machine, glue gun or other electricity-using tool.
A fold-out wing expands the work surface and disappears when not in use.
Chairs and stools that tuck out of the way make it easier to move around the space.
Fill shelves with folded fabric, how-to books, albums—or add a basket to gather loose materials.
Use rods and racks to round up rolls of ribbon, fabric and wrapping paper.
Establish a hierarchy for materials and tools. Which are needed most often? Which would display attractively? Place items used most frequently in areas easiest to reach.
