For my A2 Design, I am designing, making and marketing a textiles workspace, where the main feature is going to be a mechanism so that the sewing machine can move under the desk (eg. rotation) in order to move out of the way when tidying the area.

I need to research my target market, so if anybody is interested in sewing, or crafts of any kind it would be very helpful if you could answer the following questions:

What do you think is the most important function of a textiles workspace?

Do you think it will be beneficial if the chair and a desk are combined as a unit?

What functions would you like specifically for you in a desk?

Do you think it is difficult for your desk to be clutter free and what items are always occupying your workspace?

What essential items do you keep in your normal workspace?

Do you lean over your desk a lot when you work?


Thank you very much!!!

I need to research my target market, so if anybody is interested in sewing, or crafts of any kind it would be very helpful if you could answer the following questions:

What do you think is the most important function of a textiles workspace?
Providing enough space to be able to cut and mark out the fabric, or when designing have different pieces of paper spread out in front of you. So basically space as I find when I'm working I'm using different fabrics or pattern pieces at the same time so I need to be able to push the others out of the way. It's useful when the workspace provides drawers to place pin pots or scissors into if you don't have a sewing box.

Do you think it will be beneficial if the chair and a desk are combined as a unit?
Yes, as long as you are able to move the chair out of the way when you move the sewing machine under the desk as it is likely you will be stood leaning over the table when cutting the fabric.

What functions would you like specifically for you in a desk?
Drawers or a way to place the items out of the way when not in use so it doesn't appear cluttered.

Do you think it is difficult for your desk to be clutter free and what items are always occupying your workspace?
Yes, if constantly in use for textiles, it would be convenient to have a place to put the items that doesn't make it too difficult to get them out quickly again. Pins, scissors, pattern paper, bits of fabric, sewing machine and presser foot.

Do you lean over your desk a lot when you work?
Yes, when cutting and pinning the material, especially if the pattern pieces are big.

Hope that helped, I'm currently doing AS Product Design - Textiles
