    Quilting space

    We are in the process of quilting one of the quilts we are making for my aunts. Here is a picture of our tiny front room and what we are using for a sewing table.


    My wifes sitting at the 201-2, behind it is a Singer 66 treadle, and a Franklin treadle in a parlor cabinet.
    To the left of the Franklin is a Singer 66 E machine in it's cabinet and right in front of that is a Kenmore 158-523 in a cabinet.

    This picture kind of shows just how tiny our front room is. And the sad part is the house is equally tiny.

    One the questions I am frequently asked is, "Where do you keep all of your machines in a condo"? My answer is "everywhere!!!!!"

    And I thougt our dungeon where sewing room is was crowded. You got me beat Joe, but can't decide what machines to give up although I only have two that are in cabinets, rest are on shelves. I interchange them mostly on a Bueatyfold sewing table that husband has made me different styles of machine holders for. My dear old Janome sits on a very old, solid table at all times. I like OLD! Sorry, three are in cabinets, forgot the featherweight cabinet holding a featherweight.
    Singer treadle, Kenmore in cabinet.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!

    Your front room looks perfect! I guess there is always stacking vertically

    question: so, do you buy, repair and resell or just "collect". I have several "collections", but fortunately for my family, the pieces are small and containable...or at least usable....

    Geri,

    Haven't sold any yet, but have some that I'm going to as soon as I've finished with them. Gave one away a week or so ago.
    Some I will keep. Wife and / or I like them for what ever reasons so those we'll keep. The rest, well some will go, and some we don't know.

    Joe

    Like the rest of us that are in realtive small spaces, we make do the best wwe can & and use space to the max. I think it is much easier then dining room table.
