I have some great news. Well, at least it’s great for us. CP World Headquarters is moving into a larger studio!
We love our current space, with its great view and incredible natural light, but it has become far too cramped and incredibly cluttered. There is very little workspace, and things have been tending to pile up more and more. I find myself sitting on the floor more than I’d like, just so I can spread things out as I work. We’ll miss our little starter space, but it’s time to move on.
But we’re not going far, just from the second floor to the third! Our new studio is more than twice the size, and affords us plenty of room for all of our equipment, plus more tables, work areas, and storage. We’re planning to set up a little photo studio area, a break area (no more eating lunch at the sewing table!), a kitchenette, and there’s even a back office for quiet work and to house our printers and whatnot.
I’m also thinking that with this new, large space we may be able to offer the occasional workshop. I think it would be fun to host not just sewing classes, but all sorts of little creative workshops. Portland has so many creative people who could teach various skills. What do you think?
But mostly I’m just really excited about moving and decorating this new space! We’re going to share some of our workspace inspiration and organizing ideas as we start to plan and get settled in.
