You know how I got my own sewing space? By taking first a corner, then a bedroom, then another. When the last son went off to college, my hubs said (no kidding here), "you're getting a separate sewing room before you move our bed out." As if I tossed the kids out.....I may have encouraged just a teensy bit, but they were hitting 20! You see, keep it up but be careful that you don't appear too pushy.
