    My space isn't small to me but one of the things that makes it function larger is use of vertical space. Generally, I see people overlooking using vertical space and it can be really helpful. As you think about your space, consider what is possible up. All the way to the ceiling. And at the ends of shelves - the part 90 degrees from the wall. Any unused vertical space. And Command hooks and S hooks. Up, up and away?

    My husband put shelving around 3 sides above window height which utilises as much space as possible!! My little stool is just right for reaching high places!!

    I have been trying to downsize my sewing space. It was getting out of control! My "attic-like" space is 13' x 17'. Sloped ceiling (eliminates wall space) , two windows, one closet door (my design wall space is the door) a doorway to the next room, open railing to the stairs. A twin bed (catch all). I love to see all spaces esp cozy ones!

    I am fortunate to have a decent area for sewing. It isn't huge and I whine about it all the time but I've been so impressed by the sewing space of a blogger I follow. She lives in NYC and space is at a premium. This is her setup.http://madebychrissied.blogspot.com/...=+sewing+space

    And while you are there, you can look at all the impressive quilts she has made in that tiny space.

    Good luck!

    Beautiful. I have yet to make a quilting room because most of the ones I have seen would not work for me. I like working in an area where I can only see the current project and I need a view. On quilting days, I set up my temporary quilting area and then pack it away when I am done. I think I could work in this area because of all the windows. Thanks for sharing.

    I am moving next week from a 2 bedroom apartment (1 bedroom was for quilting/stash) into a 1 bedroom with 2 walk-in closets. 1 closet dedicated to stash but now will be sewing in dining area. Anxious how that is going to work and look forward to seeing all the creativity blossoming in small spaces. :-)
    Quilting makes me happy!..
