Such a great space!!!!!
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Such a great space!!!!!
Thanks! It is much better than when I started. I forgot to mention he made the thread stand too. He sure is handy to have around. He invented a knitting gadget so I can turn two skeins of yarn without tangling them -- I'm knitting two-at-a-time magic loop socks. He made it out of toilet plumbing products found at the hardware store. PCV tubes and wooden dowels and -- its hard to explain, lol!
What a sweet handy DH you have and clever too. Your sewing room looks so fresh and clean. Enjoy it.

Wonderful!! I just love looking at the thrift shops and clearance aisles for storage goodies for my sewing room. Have fun and stay creative.
Humor is the great thing, the saving thing. The minute it crops up, all our irritations and resentments slip away and a sunny spirit takes their place.
It looks like a great room with everything you need close by. Isn't it wonderful to have a room? I remember all the years I sewed on the kitchen or DR table and had to put stuff away for dinner to happen! It makes you appreciate the simple things
yes, especially since I have no need for an office! If I had known I was going to be a sewing fanatic when we built the house I would have known about high outlets, a sewing counter, and storage, storage, storage ...
I am happy we've done so much to make it so pleasant to work in there now!
We lived in a one bedroom studio apartment for 8 months while this house was being built and my new sewing machine never even came out of the box, and I just started sewing about 2 years ago. Luckily, my "ebay special" Janome (new in the box) ended up being a great machine. I didn't even know what to look for in machines.
I hope some of my budget ideas help other people too. I had posted my extension table previously and have to admit I like the built in machine much better! Hubby made the "extension table" out of foam core and vinyl.
Nice sewing space. I wish my ironing board looked that good.
I updated my sewing space. We moved the file cabinet from under the counter. Now I have room for the serger, or can move it and put my other sewing machine there for company -- now I just need a sewing buddy.
The file cabinet drawers open towards the sewing cupboard, so I didn't lose all that storage in them.
There is plenty of room for a cutting mat between the machines:
We moved the file cabinet over by the desk, stained a nice piece of wood to put on top of it, now I have more desktop room too!
