    I have a room for sewing, so no pics from me
    BUT
    I'm 52 and I only got it last year. For years I used the hallway, and then I used the master bedroom.

    Oh, I do understand. I sewed for years on one end of our dining room table with a two-drawer metal file cabinet I bought at a thrift store to stores my things in. The top drawer was for notions and tools, the bottom one for fabric and work in progress. It locked with the push of a button which kept my toddler's inquisitive fingers out of the pins and needles. I would just disconnect my footfeed and power cord, throw them in the drawer as well and lock the whole thing up. Things will get better in time. :)

    I'm blessed with a nice sun room where i have a 6 ft. table where I cut and sew. As you come in my front door you can't see my mess at all. tHIS ROOM IS SECTIONED OFF BY A FIREPLACE IN THE center and then wide door openings on each side of it.

    I am now a widow with no children at home...just lonely me......so I took one of the bedrooms and turned it into my sewing/computer room. It is kinda crowded but works for me. What fabric I have is in plastic containers that fit under the bed in the spare bedroom. I had to move my table from the dining room area into the family area when I got the longarm quilting machine because that was the only place I had big enough to set it up in. But it all works for me pretty good except I do have to do my oil painting on the dining room table. I only have 3 of my 7 sewing machines in my sewing room. The other 4 machines are put away for right now. I have some real old treadle singer machines that are in the garage for now.

    I am moving from a 3bd [2bd 1sewrm] into a 2bd so I'll be losing my Haven But the new bedroom is 19ft L x 9 1/2 ft W room[ I was thinking LongArm ]-and its got a 13x4 cedar lined closet Which is already full of stash So my options are-1- put a twin bed in the laundry room or-2- sleep on the couch I guess either will be OK as long as I can quilt I'll be happy besides sleep is over-rated -Pops says "Where theres a will theres a way"

    I am fortunate to have a room for my sewing but I didn't start quilting until I had an empty nest. Just think of all the quilts I could have made if I started 20-25 years ago when my kids were small.

    I have been there! I started quilting after my kids were all gone from home so I turned one of the bedrooms into my quilting space-one year and 2 granddaughters joined the empty nest. One got the quiling room and I moved my 3 machines into the dining room and my stash and UFO's where ever there was an empty spot. Now we are once again empty nesters/have moved and I have a quilting room again. Peace!
    I never sewed in the bathrooms though, there was always someone in them.

    Hi, I used to do it all on the dinning room table when the kids were younger but it was such a pain to tidy away as everyone has mentioned. Inow have a corner in our main bedroom which makes for a tight space but husband is understanding when I remind him he has the whole garage. I have my machine there on a drop leaf table so when I sew I still need to pull out the side of the table to make it usabel for sewing but that is much less work than before. I also have a tall shelf beside it which I store my fabric and bits on. I used to use suitcases under our bed to store some bits before I got my shelf. My kids are teenagers now and everyone knows that when they leave home they can come back but will share their room with a sewing machine as I will claim it, so they are prepared. Good luck

    I am coming to realize that a cluttered workspace is almost a requirement when one starts to quilt...I hate clutter. I really try to keep everything nice and neat. But with the kids and everything yea that doesn't happen often lol. I have slowly come to accept it. Until I get my sewing studio. That is the next big thing after my wedding in Nov. =)
    Sooooooo :thumbup: Suggest to your sweetie that he will be a much happier husband ;) if you have a small space alllllll your own asap! :roll:

    My sewing/craft area is the basement of a very old house with no windows so I have no idea what time of the day it is and it's hard to make myself go down there on nice sunny days. My kitchen is small and dark so no space there. It's frustrating to say the least.
