We interviewed Angela Walters on Ci Radio this week. We talked to her about how she, as a creative person who is challenged with being and staying organized, runs a thriving quilting business! Listen to the show to find out how she does it!
Let’s take a tour through her studio!
Her husband’s grandfather was the one that first taught her to quilt.
She uses a 12 foot long arm quilting machine.
Under these pretty threads she has two drawers. The top is the thread she uses most and the bottom drawer is for the remaining threads.
The studio only had this odd shaped closet. She added shelves and stores the line of quilts waiting for her along the edge!
Her assistant puts the quilts that are next in line on hangers with the due date Angela knows exactly what to quilt next!
Neatly organized and visible, Angela stores her personal quilts and samples that she uses in workshops, classes and presentations on these shelves for easy access.
To stay organized, after a client’s quilt is complete it comes to this shipping area to be packaged and mailed. All the shipping supplies are kept in the 3 drawer organizer.
Angela has her own fabric line that releases a new collection every 6 months!
Angela’s fabric was used to make this adorable bag.
Some personal inspiration by Angela’s desk!
If it can be done…it can be learned. Thanks, Angela!
