Fiberarts Studios Contest


Louise Schiele
Sacramento, California

My 15- by 27-foot studio is built into the back of my home so that I can use it whenever I get inspired, day or night. I laid the black and white floor tiles myself last summer and love how all my colors pop once installed.

I’ve organized my fabrics into open-bin baskets by color, have an area for embellishments, an ironing/fusing area, and my big red table that I had custom made to fit my machine and how I sew my surface designs. My favorite aspects of my studio are the table plus the fact that the room is accessible from anywhere in my home. I get my inspiration from all the light that comes into my studio through all the windows and my mini garden just outside my door. From my sewing table, I can see my garden, all the trees and birds in our area.
