Weekend: Welcome to Madalynne Studios

As much as I love sewing, photography is 50% of my passion. I fell into it by chance; about two years ago, I bought a micro-four thirds camera so that I could document the clothes I made. Two years later, and when I start a project, I think about the photo shoot as much as I do fabric, trim, interfacing, etc. But the hardest part about photographing is finding a good location; decent light and an interesting background are not easy to come by. Plus, who hates standing in the middle of the street with passerby’s staring while you take photos of yourself? Yep, been there, done that and don’t want to do it again. This winter, I took almost all my images at The Loom, a warehouse space for artists. They have been fantastic and very accommodating, allowing me to use several vacant rooms at short notice. During the last shoot, I asked if they had any studios available. Well, they did and… welcome to Madalynne Studios, y’all! Wealthy people have weekend homes in the Hamptons, I have a 350 ft square space with massive white walls and incredible lighting.

I intend to use this space for photography, but I’m thinking bigger as well. Madalynne Studios a place to hold private sewing lessons and/or workshops? My mind has been spinning with ideas all week. First on the docket is to get a couch because I have a feeling there will be many nights where I spend the night.

      Heating? Look at that light! I’d freeze to death for that kind of light (yes, it has heat).

    That is so exciting! You could hold a studio warming- I’m sure some Philly locals (including myself ) would love to meet you and see the space.
