Fiberarts Studios Contest


Lori LaBerge
Cary, North Carolina

I have both a home and work studio. My home studio, featured here, is a great place to escape and create. It is located in a wonderful attic space with a skylight to bring in the natural light. A ceiling fan adds to comfort on warm days.

Plain white shelving holds handdyed wool according to color, while a small shelf on an adjoining wall holds wool awaiting the dyepot. A center table is used for designing, cutting, and color planning. Close at hand is a sewing machine for finishing work, and a shoe cubby is used for storing wool for current projects.

My inspiration often comes from listening to music, and a CD player is always nearby.

The favorite aspect of my home studio is my book nook. This corner area is full of magazines and books related to fiber, dyeing, and creating. A comfortable chair and double window make this corner difficult to leave.
