Open Call: Show Us Your Sewing Space!



Do you love getting a peek into someone else’s sewing space? I do. I love to take inspiration from how other people organise their fabric stash, keep their sewing tools tidy, and decorate their craft area. A gorgeous sewing room just makes me want to jump up and sew!

We’re going to try out a new feature on the blog in the new year, in which readers give us a tour of their sewing areas. Whether you have a whole room for your craft or squeeze your dressmaking into a corner of the living room, we’d love to see where you sew.





If you’d like to be featured in one of these posts, send an email to Lexy at office (at) tillyandthebuttons.com, with ‘Sewing Space Tours’ in the subject title. In your email, please send us:

  • Your full name
  • A short paragraph about you and your sewing space (this won’t be published, it’s just for us to get to know you)
  • Any links to your blog/website/Instagram etc if you have one
  • 5 – 10 gorgeous photos of your sewing space. Please take your photos in natural light, and save them for the web as high quality 650px wide jpegs, with no text/graphic/filter overlays. You may want to include an overview of the space, a picture of you at work, detail shots of your fabric stash, accessories, décor, works in progress or anything else that makes your sewing space unique or inspirational. The more beautiful, creative and inspirational the photos, the better!

If your submission is selected, we’ll be in touch with interview questions (and possibly a request for more photos) at a later date – please be patient if you don’t hear from us right away! There’s no deadline for submission, but we hope to select the first posts in a couple of weeks’ time.

Also, any suggestions for what to call the blog feature? If so, do leave a comment below.

Can’t wait to tour your sewing spaces!

  3. I like the idea, but it would be great to see some non-gorgeous sewing areas too...
    I always feel woefully inadequate when comparing my messy and dark (especially in winter) rooms with half finished projects on nearly all flat surfaces to those clean, organized and bright pictures above.

    1. Hehe, messy is fine, as long as it's inspiring to others :)

  4. Love this feature. I have just moved into a new house and for the first time will have a dedicated sewing space this'll be a great source of inspiration. Perfect timing.

  5. Ah, I can't wait to see everyone's gorgeous sewing rooms. I'm afraid I will be filled with jealousy though, as I have to make do with the dining room table and my sewing machines, when not used are stuffed into a corner. I dream of the day when I'll have a sewing room.....

    1. Any sewing space is fine, it doesn't have to be a whole room :)

  7. Great idea!! I'm always trying to improve my sewing space and if I ever get it picture-worthy I will submit it. Until then it will be inspirational to see other peoples' rooms and spaces. I hope you will feature lots of cute little spaces / corners :)
