Default Hello from Australia

Hello everyone,
I am so delighted to have found this forum
I live in rural victoria australia.
I have been quilting for a number of years but am not very skilled but love it just the same.
I still work so dont get as much time to quilt as I would like but need to work to buy fabric and other quilting goodies.
My quilting room is half a shipping container so will be hoping for suggestions on how to improve my work space.

Welcome from Ontario, Canada. A space to call your own is great no matter the size. I like to watch the quilting and painting done by Helen Godden on YouTube. She just finished a huge quilted/ painted mural of Australia.

Welcome from central Mississippi, USA! Are you hoping to add shelves or add tables to your work area? Or just organize your space with existing furniture? I decided to keep all my fabric boxed up just to stay organized. I spread out on my kitchen table as needed and then move as the table is needed for dinner. I am not the best organizer... I just want my work area to work. My sewing machine is in the dining room, btw. Fabric is elsewhere. I need a shipping container!

Welcome from central Florida, USA. I use to have my sewing machine on a card table and I had to take it down every time I finished sewing. I am now blessed to have a large room for all of my quilting, knitting, crocheting and other hobbies with lots of storage. That's the main reason I wanted to buy this house 20 years ago and I have enjoyed the freedom of leaving a work-in-progress out on the work table until I have a chance to get back to it.
