New Look in the Shop

While I was in Kingston at the Canadian Embroidery Guild Seminar, Dan painted the shop for me. It was the perfect time as the place was empty since I had everything with me in Kingston. So this is how it looked after the paint job but before the putting back started.

On Wednesday, after the paint on the floor finally dried Beatrice and Judie came over and worked hard helping me get the place back in order. Of course we re-arranged everything and I am thrilled beyond words with the result.

Here they are conferring on some important decision. Beatrice took on responsibility for the fibre wall and she did a fantastic job.I tend to like to bask in the reflected glory of other people's hard work.And here are some shots of the finished "New Look" shop.
The DMC remained in the same place because there is nowhere else to put it but everything else has found a new place to rest.
The finished thread wallShelves arranged according to designer with subject areas designated in baskets underneath. There is some fabric hanging above the shelves but I seem not to have taken a picture of the fabric but believe me it is there...just out of sight beside the sampler purse/bag hanging at the right of the picture below.Kits

Beads and miscellaneous important stuff
Once again, a big job was made so much easier with the help of my good friends. Marie Paule made me a curtain to cover the crawl space and a new tablecloth as well and they look smashing!
Thank you Dan, Judie, Beatrice and Marie Paule. You made a big job fun and easy to accomplish.

The shop looks so inviting! I like the smaller cozier stores, so much more personable.
