Worktable Wednesday

I’m so excited that I now have my very own sewing frame! This awesome piece of equipment allows you to sew on cords or tapes. You can also use it for sewing several books at a time.

Just look at my little lovely:

I’ve wanted a sewing frame for a while. Several years ago, I took a sewing over cords workshop at the Focus on Book Arts conference and I loved it. For whatever reason, I couldn’t (didn’t) figure out a way to justify buying one. It seems that I had no trouble justifying it now!

The funny thing is that I bought tape keys back in October of 2007.

For a non-existent sewing frame.

4.5 years later and I can finally use them!

Many thanks go to Barbara Parker for deciding to give her sewing frame a new home. The best part is that she’s from Vermont – I believe that makes my sewing frame a native!

Congrats on your fine new acquisition! I don’t get to use mine all that often, but I have never regretted the decision to buy one. Nothing else works as well if you want to sew over cords or tapes. You’re going to love having it!

And besides, doesn’t it just look so cool sitting in your studio?

So what do you think? I'd love to know!
