My immediate thoughts are the same as nativetexan's, my husband has built a detached garage and two large shed for all his stuff, plus we over-sized the garage, built a heated large workshop and he has his basement full of stuff! I have hinted for adding on a sewing room for me and I get poo-pooed! He says I can take over one of the bedrooms upstairs which would never work, my 5 dogs will follow me and it would be up and down stairs all day instead of sewing, they go in and out all day! So I have my corner of the kitchen/heath room. Nativetexan, I agree, the space I am responsible for is the entire house!

My kids have referred to my sewing space as the "Mom Cave" for years, even before Man Cave became popular!

I call my room 'The Rippit Room' I collect frogs and they are in my sewing room. Have a picture of a frog, holding a seam ripper & a piece of fabric.

I kind of like "Mom Cave" but also "Quilter's Haven" but my 1st choice is still Mom Cave.

As my sewing room/area is in the basement, I made a sign using wood blocks I found at a craft store. Painted each one a different color and attached them to a wood placque. So now when you enter into my domain, you're entering into Suz's "Toy Room".

I do believe Virginia would more than approve. Every woman needs one! Thank you.
