    We went and looked at a few apartments today and naturally they are 2 bedroom so I would have to set up my machine in my bedroom. They are big enough to do that but I was wondering...does it feel odd to sew in your bedroom?

    So many new things...

    When we winter in the RV park, some of the people sew in the bedroom part - some use the kitchen table - some use the Florida room -

    depends on how big their trailer is and who they are living with.

    Yes, mine is in our bedroom, when I finish with it I cover it over, the painful bit is a: having to tidy up each evening, and b: making sure there are no pins on the floor, I have taken to using the brightly coloured glass pins. My theory was that to quilt anywhere is better than not to quilt. Have fun.

    I have sewn in every room of every place I have ever lived LOL
    There are some nice folding sewing units available. They have a lot of storage and tidying up is quicker and easier.

    when i lived alone, before getting married, my sewing room was my bedroom.

    i phrase it that way because the sewing stuff far out weighed the bedroom stuff that was in the room :shock: :lol:

    I have a quilt room but I hardly ever sew there. I like to be where my sweetie is. I do create there but sew generally out of our home.

    Sometimes I sew on the diningroom table.

    Before I took over one of the rooms in the house as my sewing room. I used the living room. I had a machine that was in a fold away cabinet so when I wasn't sewing it was used as a lamp table. This was before I started quilting though. Then it was goodbye living room, get your butts out of the den it's all mine now. If you live alone having a sewing room in the bedroom would be pretty nice. Get tired of sewing and go right to bed. :D I would have a fit if DH said he wanted to go to bed and I'd have to stop sewing. Nope wouldn't work if I had to share the bedroom.

    Never had to do that. Have always had the sewing machine in the living room, or dining room.

    It will be okay, I'm sure.

    One of the models had a nice slender desk that would be a perfect sewing table. It looked just like an old writing table with two slim drawers under the top. I could store some things under it and my legs would be able to stretch out.

    I'd love to find something like that. I can't stop thinking about that desk.

    I now have a sewing room which I think I will not have in my next place, so me too will be sewing in the bedroom. I have had my sewing room everywhere except the kitchen. As long as I am sewing I am happy even if I have to do it on the porch, which I did while living in Puerto Rico. My grandmother had an enclosed porch where she kept her machine and that's where I learned to sew.

    I have a sewing machine or two in every room in the house(including the hallway) except for the bathrooms and the kitchen.

    Hell I even have a complete Model A Ford in my attic!! :roll: :lol:
    You should have seen the look on my wifes face when she saw that one!!!!

    Then I have my studio in my back yard that has 5 or 6 that I can use in my quilting table. All but one is treadle operated.

    How about having a bed in your sewing room? My husband grew up in a household where both parents ran a tailoring company. They had about ten machines running all day. I asked him if the sound of a sewing machine relaxes him or frightens him- he just laughed. So I try to sew away from where he's sleeping, just in case!

    When all my kids moved home I moved into the smallest bedroom in the house. There's not room there for my sewing machine so I have a corner of the dining room. Most of my stash is in my bedroom closet though. Who needs to hang up their clothes. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Since the kids have flown the coop, we have spare rooms and the one bedroom has all my sewing stuff there. I can leave it set up and ready to go at any time of the day. Like when my husband is snoring and I can't get to sleep. You'd think after 38 years I'd be used to it! Now that sewing room is also a guest room so I do have to redd up sometimes, like in a couple weeks. Even though hubby is snoring like crazy, he could not sleep if I were sewing or computering in the samw room.

    In my first home, (a trailer), I sewed at the kitchen table. Then the next place, I graduated to a large built-in desk in the boys bedroom. Actually that worked out well because as those toddler kids played, I could watch them. Next, when I had a bigger home, I sewed in my bedroom. Such fantastic light in there, and a big bed to spread out projects to "eyeball" them.
    Now I have a large laundry room. That has worked the best. I sew on one side, have iron, dryer top, etc. all handy to work on. and great windows. If I ever had a "dream" home, I think I would purposely choose the laundry room again!

    We live in an old trailer and before us my sis and her hubby lived here. It had three bedrooms and they knocked out a wall so that it was one big room. The bed is on one end and the sewing "room" is on the other.

    Mine is in my room...but its a huge master bedroom, two dressers, desk, dining room table (sewing machine on top),two endtables, and a queen size bed with more than enough room to move around!!
    But, I also have to hide my machine from the toddlers!! They just love to push the buttons!!!

    I used to have my sewing machine in my room in the corner. My tote was underneath the table when I wasn't sewing full of fabric. Now my sewing machine is not in my room anymore, it is in it's travel bag ready to be taken wherever I go to sew! :)
