I’ve gotten lots of requests to show off my “batt cave” It really is a ‘cave’ since I only have an 11×10 room as my studio- but I have made it into a very special creative home.
I’ve used EVERY bit of available space.. with plying yarns and locks in over the door shoeholders, fleece hanging in an over the door hamper, and a shelving unit designed as a closet organizer.. but it does very well NOT in a closet!! There’s more wool stuffed into this room than I ever imagined possible!! All the different colors and textures are a constant source of inspiration.
There are fleeces stuffed in every corner, and lots of sparkly bits to catch the light. I also have an evergrowing collection of Sheep Incognito prints that I love to death. I do have a large family of carders- a vintage fricke coarse cloth, 2 louet classic (one only for teaching), a louet elite and a strauch mad batt’r. I do all my carding in this studio, so I have all my add in’s- fibers, wools and textures. I also keep my spinning fiber in the studio, and bring out to the living room what I am going to spin that week. (I spin in front of the TV.. I do love my Mark Harmon)
And if you ever find yourself in North Carolina, please come by and play!!
