Health & Safety Rules Observed Module 1
I have my sewing studio set up in a small bedroom and have been using this as both a work room and study.
My sewing machine is situated on a table under the window giving plenty of work area and light.
The electric lead runs under the back of the table to the socket and is well away from the walk way.
I store fabrics and other materials on shelves and in drawers in the same room and in a big chest of drawers on the landing space outside the bedroom, the chest of drawers doubles up as a cutting table and where I iron fabric to use. There is plenty of light in this area and a socket for the iron.
As I suffer with back problems I am constantly aware of posture whilst measuring, cutting and sewing.
I keep all scissors and rotary cutters and blades in a metal storage tray on the chest of drawers where I cut fabric. My cutting mats are on top of this chest.
I often have grandchildren visit and so am aware of moving these items into my studio when they are around.
