    We all had to start someplace.........I have THREE places for my sewing. Cut in the kitchen using the island........Sew/iron in the laundry/office, stash in the guest bed room........So much fun..........At this time, I don't see a change in this arrangement......Had it this way for five years........I can see many quilts in my future. enjoy your space and soon you will have so mu ch fabric, UFO's, and other things to use in your quilting, you will have your room FULL.
    Happy quilting

    For years my sewing "room" was a closet with bi-fold doors and an old desk with closet shelf above it. My opinion is that organization is key for a small area and actually more efficient than larger spaces. Too much space, too much accumulation, and you don't know what you have, so it doesn't get used. When we moved from that house, I restricted myself to one wall of the 10 ft. x 13 ft. laundry room plus an ironing board. (I have three "empty" bedrooms now since we are officially empty-nesters and I refuse to move my sewing stuff into one of them because I know I will just grow to fill it and not use half of what is in there.) My custom cabinet builder husband built me some beautiful, custom designed cabinets/sewing center for my sewing area and I try to keep it organized and limit my stash to what fits there. Otherwise I just buy fabrics for the project at hand. I love your uncluttered look, and hope you can keep it that way. You will gradually add to it I am sure...maybe organizing things on the walls and things with drawers under your tables, but if you can stay organized, that space will give you many years of sewing pleasure! Thanks for sharing.

    Sometimes I wish I could just convince myself to toss everything I have and start all over again... like some of the posters above, I have so much stuff and it takes up so much room, that I end up spending all of my time organizing it and less time sewing. Then, I still can't find what I want/need. It gets very discouraging to have an out-of-control stash. Boy, I sound like a downer, don't I?! That wasn't my intention. What I meant to say is - I love your cute little space and I'm sure you will have tons of fun there!!

    The chest has my fabric and batting. I have those little black containers holding my cut pieces.
