    Sewing area with design wall.

    My cutting table. About 36" x 50". It's as high as kitchen counters - so nice for cutting and basting smaller quilts. Storage for mats and rulers underneath.

    I still end up basting queen/king sized quilts on the diningroom table.

    My husband built the tables for my sewing room for me for Christmas last year! My fabric is all stored in the attic.

    I really appreciate the pics of small spaces! I've been able to find pictures online, and have looked at books, for dedicated sewing rooms, but don't have one or the $ that must have gone into the furnishings for many of them. It's nice to see how creatively people are using tiny spots.

    My sewing area is in my family/computer room, which opens into the kitchen. Wish I could say it's neat, but that would be dishonest. Clean, yes; neat, no. I'm slowly moving some things into our older dd's room (she is grown & gone). No plans to move in there, as I like being where everything/one is rather than secluded at the other end of the house. But I am moving some of my things in there, including most of my stash, just so it's tidier out here. The lighting in there is awful, so I frequenlty bring a bunch of things out here, then drag them back.

    But, as someone else said - I have a home with a roof over my head (and over my toys), a sewing machine, and that's a lot more than many have, especially right now. So I'll try to be grateful for what I have, and use it more creatively.

    I guess I'd say I'm actually more comfortable with a bit of clutter around me. That sounds a little odd... But I'll also say that I just saw pictures of the first sewing room I wouldn't want to play in! Neat, sure, I'll adjust. Tiny, no problem, that's cozy. Messy, okay, just pile everything and get me to the important stuff. But RATS and SNAKES??? YIKES!! And I thought I was pretty flexible...

    My space is not near as neat as the ones that i was looking at, I have been in here since the end of Nov and no where near organized. It is a disaster and it isn't because I am short of space, it is the garage and it is 17x32 ft. There is still more boxes to move in and the dune buggy to move out.

    I took pictures with my new digital camera but havnt figured out how to get to them in HP photosmart. It wont give me a link.
    I am single so use the master bedroom for my quilting. My best investments are a JOanns cutting table and a Bertha sewing table with a lift for my big Viking sewing mach. Both are necessities. I even pin my quilts on the cutting table by doing them in sections. Cant get down on the floor anymore.

    Wow, it is so great looking at other peoples sewing spaces. Like others here I have a small corner in my main bedroom and am very grateful for it. I have the benefit of having a bed which has space for storage underneath and I have washing baskets which just slide out with material etc in them. This method has worked for most of my crafts over the years. I have now graduated to having one book case so I can have some stuff out and it is lovely. Meanwhile I drool over the lovely spaces here and dream one day I too will have my own space - but still I can sew with or without that space. Thanks for sharing everyone.
