    This sewing room is exactly what I am trying to achieve with my sewing room. I love it the tidyness and extreme cozyness all rolled into one.

    i'd never be able to work in there - its too nice.

    i'd be upset with all the threads on the floor making a mess, i wouldn't feel like i could throw my dog ears on the floor, forget tossing the selvage around!!!!

    who could function in an artistic frenzy with such a well appointed space.

    Though my workspace is a mess right now, I need a place I don't have to worry about keeping "nice" all the time. When I get going with scraps of fabric and thread...forget about it. :) I love that the sewing machine is in front of a nice window. That leaves for excellent light and perhaps a nice view!

    Takes alot of money to have a room like that.
    All my extra money goes toward fabric and it isnt much.
    Thats a designer room that would make a beautiful living room.
    The quilts are wonderful.

    Her studio was lovely but doesn't look like any work goes on there. Where did she hide her stash?

    Wow. My sewing room is my living room, and it is a disaster. Maybe I need to stop quilting for a day and clean it. Hmmmmm......

    Maybe not.

    oh jes, I could def'ntely work in a room like that. I love it.
    Walls are the color I painted my living room, and going to paint my bedroom, but that will be an area at a time. will look like a patchwork quilt for a while, lol, and will have white white curtains, to let in all the beautiful sunlight. :D

    I wish I had a sewing room period. I live in a tiny apartment, so all my sewing is done on the kitchen counter. And when I'm not working on anything it all get's stored in the corner of the extra "bedroom" ...which has now become a storage area/pet room.

    too pastel :mrgreen:
    too neat :mrgreen:
    no threads dangling anywhere :mrgreen:
    no scraps :mrgreen:
    looks designerish :twisted:
    even the cat looks posed :mrgreen:
    I wonder where her 'real' sewing room is? :twisted:

    What a fabulous room, Bella! :D

    I spied him too, Patti and it reminded me to ask Hans to print off that rooster I've been talking about for ages - maybe I'll get round to it! :wink:

    I so agree w/Joanne! All I see in that room are 2 things....she needs a bigger room w/all that stuff (!)and I bet she does more cleaning and dusting in there instead of sewing!:)I say out w/the couch/loveseat-that being there means you will have someone needed a problem fixed while you work....among a few other things...:)Pretty...just not practical in my book...I like to spread out and make a mess...:)Skeat

    The clear table she has on her sewing machine is useless for quilting.
    The quilt catchs on the front and on the sides. Mine now sits in a corner unused. Had to buy a table that my machine sits inside so it is level with table top. And that thing cost me 79 dollars, what a waste of money.
    So my conclusion is this room is just for show, no real work done there.

    I was lucky to see Nancy Zieman's private sewing room and it's very neat, everything has a place, no mess anywhere. She has lots of furniture made just for the sewing room. Nothing much is showing, not even her sewing machines.
