Fiberarts Studios


Ellen Lindner
Melbourne, Florida

When visiting my studio, the first thing you encounter is my favorite element: the door. I love being able to leave a big mess and hide it behind that door. Upon entering, your view takes in my sewing machine and then continues to the closet door. A multitude of fabrics are stored in the closet. Small finished quilts are sometimes stored flat on the dresser. Larger pieces are rolled around one of two padded rods suspended above. Lower down, fat quarters are stored in wire baskets, each of them standing up like files, for optimum visibility. The wardrobe is well organized and holds everything from a respirator to watercolor pencils. My worktable sticks well out into the room, allowing for work from three sides. More storage units are underneath, and my iron is nearby. Art on the wall includes pieces by Liz Berg and Lesley Riley. Most of the action happens at my two design walls. The left one shows notes and works-in-progress. The right one displays three recent pieces. Both design walls lean against the room walls, which allows for storage behind and makes them portable enough to serve as photo backdrops.
