    What would you buy first???

    If you had your choice of one item to add to you quilting/sewing room with an unlimited budget, what would it be?? Also, what is the one thing you have right now you could not live without??

    1. Space

    2. I really don't know... needle and thread, I guess!

    Olfa cutting mat - as large as possible. I have the 35" x 70". Smaller would work for most things, but I am a seamstress and use mine as a table cover.

    Simple answer for what I can't do without-----------sewing machine.

    What would I like? A room full of elves to sew what I design!

    I would buy a cutting mat and a rotary cutter and a ruler. I assume if I wanted to buy anything quilting related that I would already have a machine and thread.

    Built-in base cabinets with a nice counter top for sewing on 2 walls. Upper cabinets with glass doors for storage. Third wall built-in open shelving.

    I can live without any of it, but could not quilt without at least one sewing machine.

    Smile

    An addition to my house so I could set up a dedicated sewing room. What was my sewing room is now my dog's room/guest room. I do have shelves/storage in there, but have my machine/cutting mats/ironing board in the dining room. It's a good thing I live alone & don't entertain much. It's always a mess.

    Could not live without: my iron.
    Would like to have: something to help me with colour choices- maybe it would be a super-duper scanner-cum-projector that could capture images of the fabrics I want to use and arrange them as I liked and project them full size on a design wall? I know you can do something like that with a computer, but I dont have a computer in my sewing room.
