    I have so....much stuff, an I am constantly re-organizing, although the fabric stays put, its all the other stuff to find places for, as you can see by my picture I have the entire top floor for sewing, 2 plus bedrooms and an open concept room which is used for my cutting table, smaller table for one of my sewing machines (one bedroom is my bedroom), the other is kinda a guest-just a full size bed in there surrounded by more fabric an bins, I have run out of wall space, any suggestions would be helpful.

    yes, but I have to share my sewing room with the guest bedroom. I don't have very much space at all.

    Buy less fabric. Sew more.

    This is so funny since I thought I was the only one that did that. :D I had a quilting little cottage built 16x16 in 2006 and now it's so full of stuff, sewing machines, a sofa, coffee table and other cabinets. I need to just get rid of some of my stuff. I can never get comfortable.

    I have a table that folds up into the wall much like a Murphy bed that is opened and closed depending on what I am doing. And my cutting table and ironing board float around the room depending on what projects are being done.

    My room is 13X14 but I sure wish it was 20X20. Seriously thinking that when hubby retires I will take over the basement that is semi-finished and turn this room back into bedroom #4. With 5 children and their significant others returning to visit we do need the extra bedroom.

    the only moving around in mine is the projects and leftovers of the projects that get moved from the cutting table to the sewing table, to the bookshelf, etc. i'm just not good at putting away :lol:

    Yes, but I don't have a lot of stuff. My room is tucked into the back of my laundry room downstairs. I am constantly rearranging for best use of space and still figuring out what is the most comfortable "work triangle" for me. I often like to rearrange/clean just before I start a new project. It somehow helps me "clear the deck" in my head and get ready to begin something new. I am pretty sure a psychologist would have a label for that tendency... :roll:

    Yes, even though I am pretty organized, I am always trying to find a better way to store my stuff.

    I don't reorganize too often, just add more stuff. My sewing room is about 10' x 11'. took out a closet and added a wall of shelves. have 2 tables and now a sewing machine in a cabinet inherited from my great aunt. not much walking space, but only need to get in and out :-). Altho, right now, there are new fabric purchases all over the floor that I have to step over. Need to reorganize all that!!

    I think a lot of us do the same. I have accumulated so much "stuff"
    that I keep getting buried. I have another room where I could move some of it, but i'd rather be on this board or sewing.
    :? :? :?

    I change my sewing room around periodically. I get bored with the layout. But in the end, the sewing machines, cutting board and ironing station always go back to original set up. Recently, I changed alot of stuff around for more efficiency. I put several sewing machines away and the only ones I have out now are my main sewing machine, embroidery machine, serger (these 3 are placed in a *U* set up and my Juki is set up for FMQ on a separate table that is in line with my *U* section. When (if) I ever get my frame set up in the guest room next door, my Juki will get moved there. Besides, when I redo my room, I have to half way clean it up!!!! That's my story and I'm sticking to it. :thumbup:

    Great sewing room! I also move stuff around all the time excluding the fabric also. My space is not nearly as big as yours, But I still change things. Seems there is not enough time in a day!My goal is to be comfortable with things within reach for the project that I am working on.

    I think I finally have everything the way I want it, but Saturday night I dreamed I was rearranging my sewing room. It must be in my subconscious somewhere that I need to make some changes. But it won't happen today.
