    Congratulations too. There is always a way to make room for sewing. Just a small corner or something. I know you won't mind when the new baby arrives. You got to get busy making new baby things, wow!

    When my first one came along I found I could not sew anyplace he was likely to get into things. Sewing stuff is pretty dangerous for little ones.

    Congratulations on the coming baby! Could you possibly store plastic tubs under the crib?

    Congratulations!! What a wonderful reason to give up a sewing room...and honestly you will have it back much quicker than you think. Before you know it that little bundle of joy will be growing up so fast, and you will wonder where all the time went. So..enjoy your baby and enjoy each moment for they are too quickly grown and gone.

    Congratulations on the news. So exciting, but just think after 18 years of great joy, then graduation from high school, and off to college, then guess what you might get a your sewing room back. But it is all worth it.

    I can't think of a better reason to sacrifice a sewing room! Congratulations!!! Although, with baby on the way, you'll want to sew even more, and there are endless things to sew for small children, especially girls. It's a vicious circle, but you'll find a way! I hope you'll show us a picture of your Special addition when he/she arrives. Be well~

    Congratulations!!Don't fret about the sewing space. Many (and I mean many) moons ago when I was in my baby years (there were three very close together). I first was in the utility room then was sqeezed out by a new chest type freezer. Then I set up in our bedroom on a card table. Remarkably the babies slept through the whirrrrr of the sewing machine. Now I'm sewing in the room that was once the girls' room and it is so cluttered with stuff that I do my machine quilting on the dining table. You can sew anywhere, as long as the "mess" doesn't bother you. Just keep the sharp things, tiny things like bobbins, hidden from the baby. You'll be fine. Remember to enjoy those years, because before you know it you'll have lots of room to quilt and that baby will be all grown up. Enjoy!!!
    One step at a time, always forward.

    Congratulations on your pregnancy. That s exciting news. I sent you are in Missouri where it can get very humid. You may want to rethink the garage storage. It would be a shame to have everything go bad due to heat & humidity. I know a person that had this same problem & solved it by putting all her sewing/scrapbooking items in plastic totes and stacking them in a corner of her guest bedroom. She then put up a portable room divider to use the totes. (The dividers that are two pieces about 5 feet tall and have a hinge to fasten them to each other.) She made a picture collage on the sides that you could see so it looked like it was part of the decor. Another friend only had 2 bedrooms so she did the same thing in her baby's room.
    Good luck in what you decide to do & be sure to sew and sew for that new baby & it's room. Post pictures.

    Baby is way nicer than a sewing room for you. Congratulations! You will fine a place to sew. I is better to be out in the living area with the baby when you sew anyway. It will be good all around!!!!

    Congratulations, there is not a better feeling to me than to have a little one asleep in my arms. I had 4 little ones, one of which was very handy with tools at a very young age. He walked past my sewing machine one day and said "look at all the screws". This was after he took his tricycle apart and the cobblers bench that had been used as a toy box. Needless to say I hid my sewing machine until he was gone to school! Today is happily married and has 3 very busy little boys that can take things apart at his house.
