    I am currently working from my dining room (which is the first room you see when you come through my front door). I'm not crazy about the clutter and will have to clean it all up before the holidays, but the dining room table is a great workspace. I would love a more dedicated space, so I may end up moving it all upstairs to the office.

    Where does everyone else work?

    Kitchen table. There are only three in my family so I scoot my machine to one side during meals. I have a large kitchen, so I have room for a small folding table that sits in the corner with serger, basket of tools and basket with current projects. The sewing machine goes there too if I need the whole table for company. I have plastic totes in the utility room for the rest of my sewing stuff.

    I have a spot right behind my couch in the livingroom. It is about a 6X12' area, this is where all my stuff is, but I use the kitchen table and my bed when needed. I would show a pic but it is a disaster right now because I have 2 large projects going on now, I can't wait to have them done.

    I'm at a kitchen table also. My den and kitchen kindof run together. I have an "office" and a spare room I could move into, but I love it here!! So, my mess is always out in the open. It's probably for the best. If I could just close a door I would probably never clean up!

    We have a spare bedroom - it's used for the kids to watch TV or play video games, me to quilt and also has a trundle bed for overnight guests. I use the closets in the room for my material and supplies and storage. Wish I could have a cutting table, but I just move the machine off the table when I'm cutting. I can shut the door when it looks too cluttered, but I like to keep it fairly neat and organized.
    I iron in the laundry room - across the house, but the iron in the spare bedroom will make the lights dim if I use it there - don't want to cause an electrical disaster...

    I took one of the bedrooms when the kids left. I used to have a daybed in there but I decided that if I didn't have an extra room no one could stay...LOL. I now have my cutting table open all the time. I have my stach in cabinets and my husband put cabinets on the wall for my misc. quilting stuff. I love my room and spend a lot of time in there.

    We have a long bedroom. I'm at one end of it, along with my husband's dresser. (I posted photos of it a while back.) Pretty cozy, but it's working okay. I use an old, high enough for me (I'm 5'3" ) butcher block table as my cutting table, and my machine is on a good-sized desk. I just wish I had a table for projects and second quilts.

    I work out of what used to be a garage. Its attached to the house and is a living space now, no door between it and the dining room and the kitchen. And yep everyone that comes to visit comes through my sewing room, simply because its the easiest outside door to get to. Sometimes its a bother but for the most part I dont mind. At first I felt like I was on display and didn't like it. But now I just say excuse my sewing mess and invite them in. Its really nice having a sewing room as large as what I do. A one car garage, if they dont like my mess oh well. DH says its your studio and work work area just like my garage, dont worry about the mess its not really a mess its work in progress. The rest of our home is clean and tidy so people understand, I hope. If not thats there problem not mine.
