Pat Delaney is an award winning quilter from Abington, MA. We caught up with Pat to talk a little about her and her wonderful studio space.
Where is your studio located (room in your house, basement, separate studio space, etc)?
My studio is located in the basement. Because there is only one tiny window, I paid special attention to having lots of lighting. I have color corrected bulbs which are perfect for matching fabric, etc. I, also, have a connecting room I call the little kitchen. It has cabinets, a sink, and microwave for quick snacks and projects that need water.
What is your favorite part of your studio?
My favorite part of my studio (oh, how to choose?) is my collections. I have toy sewing machines, miniature machines, and family tomato pin cushions. Even though I’m not a hand sewer, I collect sewing tools such as thimbles, wooden spools, sweet grass items, and sewing kits. Having my stash out and visible is always inspiring.
Pat has a cute saying on her wall that says “Some days I go all to pieces” .
What would you like to do to your studio if you had a chance?
I’ve filled almost every nook and cranny, so who wouldn’t like to double the size of her studio! I still give two classes a week in my studio, so it would be great to have a little more room to spread out
