    I use our guest bedroom as my sewing room which does not make for much room.

    How do you have your sewing rooms set up to accomodate the most usage of a small space, send me pictures if you can.

    I am so tempted to take the bed out but have no where to store it, once my daughter graduates college and moves out I can take over her room as the sewing room but that will be 1-2 years.

    Use the search feature at the top of the page. Many people have posted photos of their sewing areas.

    About 5 years ago my husband enclosed our one-car garage. We never parked the car in there anyway because it was always full of junk. Now 1/3 holds a weight machine and a chest freezer, while the other 2/3 is all mine! He custom built floor-to-ceiling cabinets on two sides, so I have lots of storage. Then he built a 6'x7' table with two sewing stations and drawers and cabinets underneath. I have an old wooden worktable that he got from a previous employer and someday I will refinish it for a cutting table. There are two nice windows, plus good lighting and even a ceiling fan. There's also satellite TV & a DVD player. If only the bathroom weren't at the other end of the house, I might never have to come out of there!

    We have a large landing at the top of the stairs....it has a "linen closet" where my fabric goes, and I bought an old cherry drop-leaf dining table for my sewing table. When we bought our house I was DYING for a couch to go on "my landing" and I've only sat on it about 10 times since we bought it 3 years ago. I usually stack fabric on it. :oops:

    So, I'm going to do some rearranging, move the couch downstairs, bring a wing chair upstairs, and put my quilting frame where the couch was. I do have a wall that can be a design wall, but I just haven't done it yet.

    I store totes under the sewing table, but still...too much stuff under there.

    Everyone here has seen My studio but I built a separate shop in my backyard just for my quilting...

    These were taken right when I first got it put together on the inside. It has a larger wall unit with more machines and the thread rack is overflowing LOL!

    I am going to be moving out to my property in middle TN this summer hopefully so then I will have a huge studio built in the basement!

    But for now this is what I work out of.

    I love my sewing room. I took it me over 6 years after my daughter left for college to decide it was mine! I guess I finally realized she wasn't going to move back home! (: It would have been a guest room, but having someone stay over is a rarity, so it gets much better use now.

    We never have guests stay, all our family lives in the same town expect for a brother on both sides of the family. I may just break down and tear the bed apart and find a place to store the frame and mattresses until my daughter moves out. I really would like her room since she has two full closets that extend down the entire wall of her room. That would be great for storage of all my stuff.

    I have a smallish bedroom for my sewing room. Since I first took a room for a sewing room this one is the smallest though. I even had to take the doors off to have enough room for everything in here! I also have my computer desk and a tv in here.
