Fiberarts Studios Contest


Anne Abendroth
Salem, Oregon

My studio is located in the bonus/party room of our house. It holds a 60-inch AVL (sixteen-shaft) loom and two Gilmore looms, as well as a large (9-foot) worktable. The yarn and equipment storage is my favorite aspect of the studio.

The right wall closet has space for my reeds and lease sticks, beads in small plastic-drawer cases, and larger plastic drawers for all the yarn odds and ends. There are sample notebooks on the top shelf. The left closet holds fabric shelves, cardboard and paper rolls, and more small yarn storage. The worktable holds a warping reel, sewing machine, and has general workspace.

The “bar” area counter is where I sort and select yarns and wind pirns. The space above is for coned yarns, sorted by colors. The cabinets below the counter are for more yarn and general equipment. Note the sink for quick paint cleanup. When the cabinet and closet doors are closed, the studio looks neat, and the yarns and equipment are protected against dirt and light.
