    ME! The answer is ME! To start with, I've tripped over too many things in the past few weeks in my sewing room...something that comes with three quilters sharing one, small room! Right now my sewing room is 8' x 14" and all the side walls are lined with tables right now. It's quite a hassle to get anything done, let alone teach my youngest DD to quilt and step around my oldest DD's quilting project.

    Sooo, this was all irking me when I started my Spring Cleaning this week. In our home, if there's something we don't use in a 1 year period, it's shipped off to our local charity thrift store. While sorting through our dining room, DH and I just clicked on one thought: WE NEVER USE THE DINING ROOM! We never entertain. Since my DFIL has found someone new, we never host the holiday dinners and since DH works late most nights, it's just the girls and I eating at the kitchen table our outside in nice weather. So, we took out the piano and relocated it, moved the large fish tank upstairs and emptied out the china curios. Tomorrow I can finish cleaning the room and start relocating the sewing room. The new room is 12' x 18'! That's almost double what I had before! :D

    Wow, that sounds like a dream come true!!!!!!! We really need a good amount of space and especially if there are three of you. I would be ready to pull out someone's hair if I had such close quarters.
    Good for you and I know you will really enjoy your new space and the production will be tripled!!!!!!
    Can't wait to see it all done.

    thanks

    Will do! I'm debating on painting at the moment, first. That may take a few days.

    a wonderful example of 'great minds think alike' - just hope your rule of if it wasn't use in a year out it goes doesn't apply to your new sewing room next spring. lol

    I wanted to do that too but Hub will have none of it. We too never use the space and there is a 10ft table in there. I usually end up sewing on it anyway when I need the room. I just hate dragging stuff back and forth. But....My daughter just moved and I get the rest of my sewing rooms back. So maybe I won't mind after all.

    Congratulations on your new sewing room. My small sewing room is 9x15 and there's barely enough room for me, I couldn't image sharing it with others. LOL

    Sounds like you have a wonderful husband, especially one who helps you with your sewing! I have a great husband but he would just as soon all my "stuff" would go away! Good luck with that!! LOL

    Did I mention that when he got home from work at 6, that DH helped to move all of the heavy furniture from the dining room and then all of my heavy sewing stuff down to the new room?
