I used to sew in my livingroom....I had to clear everything off the dining room table at dinner time ( I hated that). I actually have two dents in my wood floors where kids were running through the livingroom and knocked the iron off the board and dented my floors...not once but twice! LOL
Then I moved to the family room.....and all my "stuff" took over. I sold the furniture and everything to fit my long arm. Then the kids started complaining that they needed their game room back...so now my studio is in a converted garage ( which is attached to the house).
