    That's the way I started out. The dinning room table and a few scraps of fabrics. Then with each project I always bought more than I needed and that started my stash.
    Where in So. Cal are you? I am in La Verne.

    Close. I will be 60 in November. I have a spare bedroom converted into my sewing room. I don't think I'm quite up to par on my fabric because I only purchase fabric that I need for a specific pattern - I don't buy just because I think it's pretty because I have no room to store it. Machines - I'm over - just got a Janome Horizon, I have an embroidery machine, a serger, and an HQ-16 on the studio frame. Machine wize I probably won't buy another machine as I have everything I want and need. Now if I could just retire so that I can use my machines as much as I want..........

    I fit everything too except that I am about 32 years off on the age.

    Is this you? I know I fall in that category. Give me your thoughts. :lol: :oops: :roll:
    Ok, I'm not 62, but I have invested in a similar amount of fabric. And, last week's order from Hancocks of Paducah may have gotten me close to that number! Also, y'all got to check out the clearance on Hancocks of Paducah's website- good stuff.

    NO!

    *27 years old
    *Sew at the kitchen table.
    *Even with my Brother maching I MIGHT have 1500 dollars worth of tools and supplies.
    *If I have 150 dollars worth of purchased fabric I'm lucky! (lol its good quality just not much of it!)
    You will get older and by the time you are 65 just think how much you will be worth and by then you WILL have a sewing room. Did not start as young as you but have aquired a lot of stuff in my short quilting life.

    Hey, I'm 28. And, admittedly, I went for the gusto when I fell in love with quilting. By the time I'm 62, I will have exceeded those numbers. :XD: And yes, I do have my own quilting area, with all of my wonderful containers full of quilts-in-progress (fabric). Happy quilting!

About a 1/3 of the closet is for clothes the rest is for stash, storage,office supplies,CDs,paperwork, bedding, etc. The closet is 8ft. wide, by 24in.deep, 8 ft. tall.)

    My tools, including quilting books(62+), tables (3), machines(2), rack for thread (1 150 spools) , OTT lights (4),rotary cutters, scissors, storage bins, etc.
    Probably about $5,000.

    Fabric $2,500. Quilts made 5. Quilting for 6 months. :)
    :D Good grief! girl, get that bed out of there, with all those toys, you have no time nor need for sleeping!
    Sounds like a great space for alone time.
