Welcome to the Creative Spaces Blog Hop!
It is a crazy 6 week journey with a ton of people! Each week we will all tackle one subject. There are also a lot of giveaways!! (More on those at the end).
This is week 1 where we each talk about our Studio Clean up. I am going to be a little different and talk about my studio redesign.
Back in the late part of 2016 I had this great idea. I wanted to stream on Twitch. I had a studio in the my basement and wanted to be able to interact with people while I created quilts and patterns. I had a very basic set up.
It felt cramped though. Once I added in a few cameras and lights I wasn't going to be able to move around a lot.
During Fall Quilt Market of 2016 I met the amazing people at Arrow Sewing Cabinets. They agreed to work with me to redesign my space and make it more streamer friendly. I was very excited and couldn't wait for my boxes of furniture to get started!
First I had to get everything moved so I could paint the walls.
Then I got to put my brand new Arrow furniture together! I went with a cool stylish table and a few thread cabinets (I will get to those during week 5).
My finished studio was a dream come true!
Next was the streaming equipment! I got a few cameras and lights and set everything up.
It was very simple to find the right lights but cameras were a little harder. I ended up settling on the Logitech 922. Over the past year I have gone to a 4 camera system but the overall design hasn't changed much.
Want to come hang out while I stream? My schedule is always on my Facebook and my Twitter. I also announce on Instagram when I go live. We have a lot of fun, talk about sewing and quilting and of course have daily giveaways. I am the giveaway queen after all.
