    Momma's Room, or Momma's Playroom, actually My Sewing Room is really what mine gets called. Can't think of an "elegant' name, but I'm more country that upper crust.

    Sewing room, even though there is a spare bed in there and office supplies?

    My bedroom. Sounds silly, but the only thing in my bedroom that's not sewing dedicated is my bed itself. It shares the space with a 6x4' cutting table, Singer 201 in a cabinet, my Bernina minimatic, all of my storage, and is soon to also contain my industrial in addition to the other machines. Even my wardrobe contains more fabric and sewing stuff than clothes!

    I have only had a dedicated space since we moved here about 2.5 years ago. It is just a small bedroom upstairs but it is perfect for me. I call it my room. As in going to my room to work on something. Or I'll be in my room.

    "Studio" sounds businesslike or art-oriented to me.

    I think it depends on how you feel about what you are doing there.

    "Downstairs" is what my area is - a mainly unfinished basement - but the walls are painted and I have carpeting.

    I have two. My main place where I sew and have all the supplies for that is my sewing room. My room where my long arm quilting machine resides is called the quilting room.

    Sewing room, but really it is the whole 2nd floor of my house! Two bedrooms and a loft. Mostly packed with boxes stuffed with fabric bought and given to me over the years.

    Calling it "My Playroom" sounds good to me. We do a lot of playing in that room.

    I call mine the Craft Room, in the third bedroom. It was originally used for scrapbooking & contains all the large scrapbooks I’ve filled in the dozen or so years I participated in that craft. I didn’t knit, crochet, or quilt then. Now I do all three fabric/yarn activities. My yarn stash is so large, though, it’s in the third bedroom, which also has a guest bed. I call that one the Yarn Room!

    The first time we looked at this house, Rob said "Quilt Room" when we walked in that room. Always has been and I expect it always will be. That was in 1990 and I could happily live in there...

    It isn't what we call it, it is how we use it. If it is simply a depository for fabric, you could hardly give it any name other than black hole

    I call it my sewing room. I just snatched another bedroom to add a new cutting table. I can see where I'm slowing going to have two sewing rooms

    Upstairs, and yes, the entire upstairs is for my sewing stuff. it's only two rooms and the small one has my stash.

    - the Long Arm is in the Machine Shed, as are about 80 other sewing machines.
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments.

    I call mine the sewing room. If you are looking for a special name, how about "_______'s Inspiration"?

    Mine is called Sew Rotten Room. It's a great room that my husband made for me. I feel just spoiled rotten every time I walk in there. It's light and bright. I've got a cutting table, pressing table and sewing tables, complete with drawers and shelves - all made by my husband. There is a "store" of fabric along with my sitdown longarm machine. Like I said - I'm feel positively spoiled every time I open that door! I guess I felt like I had to justify it's name.
