    My sewing room is pretty tidy and organised too - I can't work in a mess. Plus it's only about 6' x 8' so there's no ROOM for mess! LOL

    Skeat, how do you keep your quilt from catching on the edges?
    It works fine for piece work but not for quilting.

    that's not where she works. that's where the cleaning person works.

    and if i had a sofa in my sewing room (read: basement) i would have altogether too much company. where is her stash and other thingies?
    if it all fits in that armoire, then she doesn't have enough!

    I've just got one too and only used it once, but I must say I had no trouble either - once I'd stuck the little rubber foot pads on it! :oops: Before that it kept sliding away but after it was fine. :D

    I use to use it (extension table)anywhere from my dining room table to a small table the kids had...when quilting, I just kept my 'card' table (that folds up to be put away)on the other side of it...sometimes w/a taller chair. On my side...I would keep another chair beside me and run it over my shoulder if it was long enough...or on the chair beside me. I eventually talked my husband into cutting an art table my fil had made me...cut the shape of the machine and extension table...now it sits flush. Still when I 'quilt' on it...I still use my card table on the other side, etc:)The idea is to keep your quilting level as possible. I just find for myself, having that exten. table even before setting it in my art table (which is a non solid door!)is to have somewhere the weight can go to easily...w/out this table I found I was fighting the weight of it wanting to slide off to my left...giving me more to fight under the machine itself. Guess that is why it didn't catch for me...I'm not sure:)Skeat

    'blow' we used to say at school - English slang for 'break wind'! But thought it was more fun to let you speculate! :mrgreen:

    I'm not fancy enough to have a "sewing studio". But I do have a nice "sewing room". :D It could always be larger, but it works for me and I can do most anything in there. I have my 3 machines set up in a U shape, so when my embroidery machine is running, I can sew on my serger or my 1600. I do better with organized chaos :!:
