Last November, while I was browsing Apartment Therapy, I ran across this post about the Stitch Lab in Austin, TX.


Leslie Bonnell‘s vision of a community craft space wowed me with its retro (and often humorous) interior design, organization of materials and smart layout. It gave me a new appreciation of craft rooms.

Since then, I’ve been collecting pictures of other craft spaces I love. Here are several of my favorites. They’re colorful, feminine or quirky — and often a mix of all three. They’re functional and almost obsessively organized. And they all make me feel like I could walk in, sit down and bring my creative ideas to life.

    Thank you for the inspiration! I can't wait to do this for my mom!

  2. I wish to have my own crafts room too just like any of these. This is really inspiring to see. I'll show this to my partner and hopefully he could improvise for me.
