    Ever since I set up my sewing room, I've had to share it with a futton. Yesterday I had DH and DSS move it to the basement and bring up a table I had down there. I raised the table, so I could use it for cutting. No more dragging everything out to the kitchen table to cut. And best of all no money spent.

    Now that makes it more "work friendly". Do you sew in this room too?

    Yes, I do. When I bought this house I was single, it's only a 2 bedroom. I had left the futton in there, just in case we had overnight guest. The futton just became and dumping spot. Here's the other side of the room.

    The futon in my sewing room is a dumping ground also. However, I keep it there because it gives me a comfortable place to sit and browse books, unsew, calculate design and yardage, etc. where I can rest my back, I'll pile things on the back of the futon so I can stretch out, elevating my legs too. I've even been known to take a little nap there. My cutting table is in the center of the room, and I have to walk circles around it to get to the other side. I've thought about getting rid of the futon so I would have more stash room, but I'd still have to walk around the cutting table. The best thing about keeping it is that there is a place for company to sit. Sometimes the DD, husband or girl friend will come sit with me, or the parent of one of my 4-H students. For now, the futon stays, and I will continue to admire people like you who have the energy to reorganize, and make your work space more efficient.

    That looks way more user friendly. Once you have a personal space to work the time spent quilting is so much more enjoyable. Happy quilting.

    I have a table similar to that in my sewing room and it is wonderful! I have a 3x4 ironing "board" on it part of the time and use it for pinning quilts and all sorts of things. It was one of the best additions to my room. I also have a cutting table on the other side of the room.
