Lighting your work is so important. I would love to hear your feedback on any of the following illumination issues:
Lighting in your sewing room
Lighting your work on display
Lighting while hand or machine stitching
Lighting while matching colors / fabrics / thread
Lighting while photographing your work
Do you use any particular lighting for when you are working on your projects?
Piecing isn't so much a big deal for me. I can do that any time. But I do find that I cannot do my fibre art at night. I just don't have enough lighting that keeps the colors true. I have one big window in my sewing room, and I work best during the middle of the day.
For photographing, I like a well lit room full of natural light, but not direct sun on the item being photographed. I have white sheers hanging in the window which really helps diffuse the light more evenly. I also found that my whole work space lights up when I have white walls. If your walls aren't white, you can put up a big styrofoam board which also serves to put up your work. You could use white flannel or even hand a white curtain just to light up the space better.
