    How much space do you actually have to work with? Looks to me like there is a problem accessing the table and that you have to move a lamp to get into the space...that will get old. What does the room look like? Right now, you basically have an area that is useful when you're actually quilting but that is only part of the process. Think you might be able to do better but can't help if we don't know what you've got to work with.

    Anybody can come quilt with me anytime they want to!!! The height kind of worked out. When a friend posted that she had a table for sale, I looked up the height of a PP table, and it's 30 inches. My industrial machine is 30 inches, and my sewing table is 29 inches. I'll have to put something under the back legs of that table to bring it up to 30 inches! If the PP table was any higher, I wouldn't have bought it. I thought I would like the storage under it, but it's too much trouble to get to anything under there. I am tall and can reach the boxes on top with no problem. The only real "issue" is adjusting the air conditioner!
    That is my sewing area, I have a separate cutting area and I'm using the other half of the PP table to baste on (It's great!)
    It is in our bedroom, so we have to have room for our bed, dressers, too! That's my corner (I have my materials and the cutting table, which is a old kitchen cabinet, by the bed) and thanks to the exterior door, there isn't a whole lot more room there, although it's easy to move the tables in/out of the way temporarly.

    I haven't figured out what to do with the floor lamp. I need more light in that area!
    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!

    The only thing I'd consider is pivoting the sewing machin(s)e so that the ping pong table can be used to support the weight of your large projects when sewing and/or quilting.

    Looks very efficient. Lots of room to move your fabric around. I'd say you have it perfect! Happy sewing!

    I like your layout. Especially that the ping pong table abuts the two walls. No worry about quilt falling over the edge and causing drag.
