    I have one room where my sewing machines, ironing board, design wall and all the stuff I use often are kept. That one is just the sewing room. Then I have the room next to it for my big cutting table, cabinets for my books, sewing machine totes, patterns and "extra stuff" is stored. My husband calls that one the "sewing annex"

    My husband has a name for my room. He says he doesn't step foot in the hallowed ground.

    I am lucky enough to have a free standing studio in my back garden and it is called "the cabin".

    I think you should change the name to Sew Blessed Room or Sew Happy Room or Such a Good Husband Room

    A few years ago I embroidered clock faces and made clocks for my sewing freinds. In the center of the clock was Maggie's Studio, ect, and thus it is sewing studio!!!

    Exactly what my hubby calls the second guest room I just painted. The first guest room became my sewing room, and the new guest room only has a twin bed, my grandmother's machine in a cabinet (used as an end table) , a second end table, my son's dresser, and an extra fabric dresser. I kept referring to it as the new guest room, but hubby said, "Might as well call it what it is: your sewing annex." He's right. We have guests annually; I use my sewing room weekly.

    Since I'm in a temporary rental house until we sell our house and get one built. I only have a Sewing Spot for now.

    "Ralph's room" It was an unused room. A young friend, Ralph, asked if he could stay awhile as he was having trouble at his parents' place. Well, I cleaned it out but he changed his mind. So, I grabbed the room as my sewing room. For some reason we just kept referring to it as Ralph's room.

    Same here... My dining room never had a table in it so it is the one room that is totally dedicated to quilting stuff. One could really call it "My House" since there is quilting paraphernalia in every room except the bathrooms.

    How about calling it, "Sewing Heaven." Then you can say, "I'm going up to Sewing Heaven." I can't think of a better place to go.

    How about 'she shed'.
    Susie QOH; you could call one a sewing room and one a "supply room". LOL

    Since mine houses my desk, computer cabinet, 3 sewing machines and is in dire need of straightening and a good cleaning . . . I usually refer to it as my "Wit's End" room!

    Itís the office here. I only have a small room and I share it with hubby. He paints models on his side and I sew on mine. We also store books in there so it really is multi purpose

    When we moved, I graduated from the kitchen table to My Sewing Room.

    "My sewing room" -- not fancy, but descriptive! (The overflow craft supplies inhabit half the laundry room, and there are still tubs in the garage from our move two years ago!)
