    Sewing Room

    I moved my 2 girls into the same room and made a sewing space for me. The basement just wasn't working out. I was using the dining room but would have to pick everything up when I stopped so it was a pain. Especially since I have been picking up jobs for other people now. My LA is still in the basement with mostly all of my fabric stash. But at least now I can work on a project stop and come back to it easily. It also allowed me to get rid of a truck load of kids stuff that has accumulated over the past 6 years.

    Same here, my mid-arm and fabric/thread/batting/etc are in the basement, but I sew and embroider on the dining room table. I'm able to leave my project there since we're empty nesters. It works out good that way - I get up and walk off the stiffness when I need something from downstairs.
    However, our retirement house in Wyoming is a one story house (ranch with no basement) and everything fits into one big room. Can't wait for the day we can move everything in there!

    Good for you. You will love having your own space.

    It's a 403A, My 401a is still in the dining room. No place to put it yet.

    Good for you! It's probably better of the sisters to have their room togther so they can bond. I love the hardwood floors and it looks like you get some good light in there.

    Cute little future quilter! Nice to have a room where you can leave things set up.
