Millions upon millions of people each year flock to live theater performances at locations across the planet. The Stratford Festival of Ontario, Canada is an event that stands in a class by itself. People are in awe of the collective talent who create the productions offered there, but often are not often aware of the amazing creativity and artistry that goes on behind the scenes.
In the video below, step into the creative process behind the scenes of wardrobe and costume creation, from concept to the stage by the designers and sewists of The Stratford Festival.
THE RIGHT SEWING AND CRAFTING FURNITURE & CABINETRY
Choosing the right sewing, serging and crafting furniture is important. We’ve created a checklist of aspects and features to consider before shopping and investing in furniture that is likely to be a lifetime investment. ~ShopJoya
Ease of movement is critical for those who sew and craft. Choose furniture with center-of-the-needle sitting position, which increases visibility and decreases back strain. Also beneficial are commercial grade casters to make your cabinet easy to move, or remain securely in place.
Do your back, neck and shoulders a favor! Choose sewing cabinetry with the Rudersburg Lift. This lift will allow you to move your machine to the desired position and effortlessly raise your sewing machine or serger from the bottom closed position to the flat sewing position. See video about The Rudersburg Lift at the end of this post.
Visually beautiful finishes are important, but equally important in purchasing sewing furniture is to choose a unit that is durable, heat, scuff, scratch and stain resistant as well as cabinetry that is completely finished front to back, inside and out.
Sewing furniture and cabinetry best meets the changing needs of those who sew and craft by offering expandability. When shopping, choose a unit that you can configure to meet your needs, as well as offering the option of adding pieces, such as additional sections, cabinet doors, drawers, etc.
The purchase of sewing, serging and crafting furniture & cabinetry is truly a long-term
