    I actually have 2 spaces. One at home and another studio that I rent for my mid arm.

    When I bought the frame machine we had an empty bedroom and it was perfect. Then our youngest moved back home and into that room. My husband set it up in the living room for awhile and one day said to find a place for it. So I did - I rented an 18 x 18' office and I LOVE it! It came with the built in cabinets that you will see in the photos. These photos were taken as I was moving in so it wasn't decorated yet. I now have 2 designs walls and space to hang quilts. I spend a ton of time there and invite friends over to sew.

    Donna Jean, if you attend quilt shows, this company is usually a vendor at most big shows. they will ship it for free.
    A lot of my friends bought them and we take them to quilt retreats since they fold up and have wheels on the end. It also includes a cover.

    I don't go to quilt shows anymore. There are none close by & it keeps me from buying things I really don't need. I do however, have a 2nd floor sewing room & might do some more quilting in the summer if I had the portable table downstairs.

    I've been thinking of renting a space for sewing. There are a lot of empty office spaces in my area. It would be great to not have to pack everything up and tote back and forth with my quilting group. We meet in the library meeting room for free but of course have to go by their opening and closing times. Re arrange the tables, vacuum before we leave to be sure no pins are left for kids to find. If I can find a large room with bathroom I think it's something I will do.

    That's exactly what I've done. I'm subletting from a man who happens to have 3 offices and 3 bathrooms. So, I have the large room, with windows, and a bathroom and coffee bar. I have my own entrance door so I can come and go whenever I want. I LOVE it on Saturday mornings! No one is around and it's so peaceful. It's so cute, the men in the office are always coming in to see what I'm working on.
