A Glimpse into the Studio


It's been a while since I posted a glimpse into my studio. This past Friday I was able to purchase some plastic storage bins and finally organize my space. The 90" long work table below was pretty much covered with various supplies, fabrics and finished bags leaving me very little space to actually work on. Now everything is in its place and I have finally regained my work space. It will make cutting fabric and drafting out patterns so much easier. 


Below is my sewing station complete with my trusty and reliable Juki. On the left is a glimpse of a Brother machine that I use for applique work. I purchased the chair for $10 dollars at a local second hand shop and reupholstered it with faux suede. It works perfect. 




The lovely sign below was designed by Tom and given to me as a gift. It comes with a stand that can be used for outdoor markets. And on your right is Anni tucked away in her favorite basket taking a rest from all the recent activities taking place at Pesky Cat Designs studio.

How fun for me to get a peek into your studio today. I have never heard of a Juki sewing machine so now I'm curious. Love your work table and of course your sweet basket sleeping Anni. Thanks for sharing. Maybe someday I can see your studio in person. That would be nice!

Annie, is so sweet sleeping away. I can relate to being busy, I feel that I have not had any free time. I do not like that feeling before leaving.
Your studio is so sunny and happy--I love it, and I love your new work!
Love peeking into your studio. Anni is just adorable! Someday I hope to have a studio. I have taken over my dining room.
Thanks for stopping by my studio everyone!

Melanie- Back in NYC my living room and my dining room table serving as my work space for 3 years. Since moving to Florida I finally have an entire room to myself. Hope you can set up a studio space for yourself soon. I know how productive you are so you could really use one! :)

My One Second of Fame

I had my one second of fame today! I was hoping for the 15 minutes promised by Andy Warhol but I can't complain. 

On March 27th I got a call from a producer of CBS Sunday Morning News letting me know that they are doing a feature on America's handmade economy and want to feature some of my bags on the set. I was quite excited. I dropped off some of my handbags at the studio that day. Posted above is my security entrance card. My first name is spelled wrong and my head is turned to the side because the producer asked me a question just as the security guard was taking the photo. I was allowed in the building with my profile shot so all was well. 

The CBS feature was broadcast nationally today. I was not at home and only had access to a small portable black and white TV with so so reception. Yes, rabbit ears. In the opening shot, CBS Sunday Morning News anchor Charles Osgood points to my handbags for about a second. he he  But I am still honored that they chose my bags from the th…

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on. 

Above is a shot of Millie, a wonderful coworker back in New York, modeling the Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchel. Wish I had her here for my next photo shoot!
