    When you have your room finished will you be making yourself available for hiring as a sewing/craft room organizer? I know I could definately use your help.

    I like those peg boards too. They are handy. I want to get a cork board also for my room.

    Deb, it look fantastic, God Bless you and all the hard work you have done. It is so nice to get it all straighten out and finding what you are looking for at a glance. I just did thinks to straighten my sewing room out and just love to be organize. My sister-in-law could use your help. Her craft/sewing room is a nightmare. Her and I both always over do it, but she and I have both been sewing for over 50 years and you can really collect alot of stuff.

    lOOKS gOOD ,OOPS Got my hands on the wrong keys. Had to get up and turn on the light. I envy you all the room you have. My bedroom is also my sewing room. I look like a hoarder with just a trail to the BR. lol. Do have to keep it half way straight and clean tho. Wanted to be with all you guys yesterday but live too far away. Didnt get to go to the Dallas show either. Maybe next year.

    Deb, why do you have your sewing machine on a tilted board? Does it sew better that way or is it easier on your back?

    WOW! What a transformation! Great job! My sewing room is a disaster also and overwhelming at times. I have tried to figure out how I can rearrange the furniture to make better use of the space, but have not tried it out, only in my head. I think I need someone to kick me in the butt.
    BTW, What are your rooms measurements?

    What a super job you did Deb. It will be so much easier to find what you're looking for now. You're an inspiration to us all to tidy up and organize. Just put curtains over the fabric so DH's don't have an idea how much we really have. ;-)

    Hang in there. I love the wooden blinds. Before you know it you will be sitting in your new sewing room sewing away.

    Hello. The Sewing machine lifter was made by my DH who makes them for board members. YOu can find them under classifieds Deb's Sewing Machine Lifter?. Anyway, it is at a graduated angle and it helps the back and my vision. Tilts it towards you so you don't have to lean it to see where you sew. Many of us on here have one now. YOu can see their comments on the post too. It all started when I went to a retreat and did not want to spend over 40..00 for one. Told him about it and whalah....have one. Thanks for noticing.

    I bought two rolls of corkboard at Lowe's for a more reasonable price than at craft stores. I am putting it on another wall when I can get to them. LOL. Was going to use it for design wall but don't want to pin. My design wall is a tablecloth with flannel on it I put on wall and then had hubby build me a frame to make it "pretty". LOL. I wanted to put it right side out so the red would show but had to put the flannel out. (sob, sob, hic, sob). I do love my reds.

    Hey Debbie, great work and now you can actually FIND things! Can I ask a question? Why is your sewing machine at an angle with a wedge under it? Just curious.

    Really nice. You will be able to see everything at a glance. No wasted time looking for something.

    Would love to have you but I am trying to get someone in Oklahoma to have one too. I can stay at WInstar or Riverwind with free rooms, and we can share. SO much fun. Maybe twist Dix, quilt fanatic or Jacquiltoz, etc. Hint,hint. I would come. You can always spend the night with me if you came here and we could play in my sewing room. Nice to see you popping in here. HUGS

    Thanks for all the Kudos, my cyber buddies.
