I am big on no drinks next to fabric. I will put water or coffee in the window sill behind me, but there's no fabric near it. I share space with my family, so everything is allowed where I sew. The only thing really Not allowed in there - is someone looking for scissors.

I am with Peckish, I always have a stash of dark chocolate in my sewing room. I also usually have my daily glass of Cabernet and a cup of coffee. To date there have been no accidents; perhaps because there is no room in there to knock anything over. However, now that I have let the cat out of the bag, I will probably spill something.

​No eating or drinking g while sewing. But I do use the dining room table because of light. Just have to make sure table is throughly clean!

No real restrictions. The dogs are trained to stay on the first floor and the sewing studio (DH's designation) is on the second floor. I eat and drink in there and am almost always in my bare feet -- though the floor is vinyl, not carpet, so any pin/needle that falls is visible and immediately retrieved.

I sew in my living room (by choice) so pretty much anything goes, I like being in the daily household fray! However, I have only fishies and snails so I don't have to worry about animals. It's not uncommon for me to stop my project so that kids and teens can make a pillow or a small blanket or purse or something, I love it. Quilt police are not allowed but that's a given right?

Nothing is banned except the daily news on TV or radio. I quilt to have fun and relax and I don't like the negative atmosphere. I have 2 large dogs and they love to sleep in my sewing studio when I am using my sewing machine. I think the hum of the motor lulls them to sleep.

What a great question! I had to think hard to come up with something. Smoking would be the #1 "not allowed", but that pertains to my whole house and car. Maybe anyone or thing with dirty, smelly hands or paws.

My cats visit when I'm in the sewing room but rarely when I'm not. They like to watch me sew. They never bother anything. Hardwood floors so anything dropped is easily seen and picked up. TV is usually on Youtube so I can watch/hear quilt videos, like MSQC.

I do eat in my sewing room occasionally. More in the winter because it's upstairs and warmer. But I never have my quilting/sewing project near the food. And I will sometimes keep some Vitamin "C" (chocolate!) nearby, cuz ya know we quilters have to keep up our strength for those marathon quilting sessions.
