    What name have you given your sewing space/room ? :)

    My first sewing space was a tiny spot in our bedroom against the wall...on my Dh's side of the room. (because there was a window I could look out when I sewed.) The chair had to be pushed in for my husband to pass by.

    Years later, I moved on to a room of my own. Its not a total sewing space as there is a daybed for guests or me when I get tired from a sewing marathon. I decided to name my Sewing Room my "Quilt-A-Way", as in hide-a-way, because I go in there to quilt a way and sometimes get hidden in the fabric.

    What name do you call your sewing/quilting space/room?

    We moved a year and a half ago to a house that has enough room for me to have my own sewing room. I just refer to it as "my room". I am way more productive because I can get to all my "stuff" and never have to turn it into a guest room. Maybe I'll think of a new name
    for it one day.

    If you saw my sewing room the term "black hole" may come to mind!

    My DH named my sewing room "Lala Land" and even made a plaque for the door stating such. He said when I'm in Lala Land everything else is forgotten. I'm ashamed to have to agree with him. LOL

    Right now I call mine "The Abyss" anything missing in there won't be found until spring clean up! This is what happens when you work on one project after the other with no clean up in between!

    I have moved all my quilting/sewing things to my dining/living area. When I had it in a small room it was "the Cave" now I call this my comfort zone.

    I have started to call mine The Studio, but sometimes refer back to calling it The Front Room which it was for years. Calling it The Studio is a bit of a stretch when I see pictures of others' studios on this forum. Mostly it's "This mess is a studio."

    I call my place The Studio. It is spacious, has almost everything a quilter could want and is under the rafters. It is my chill place.https://www.quiltingboard.com/pictur...rs-t66107.html

    My sewing rooms are in the basement. One room is mainly fabrics, cutting and design wall. The other room is where I keep all the machines so I called that one my "Toy Room". Got some children's wooden blocks, painted them in various colors and screwed them to a placque to hang above the doorway.

    Mine isn't quite a black hole but the terms "neat" and "tidy" will never be applied to it.

    I have the "sewing room" and my other sewing room is called the "Annex".

    It use to be called "Fortress of Solitude". I pretty much had the place to myself. But since I've had others come and share my space, I'm thinking I need to change the name.

    THAT depends entirely on its state of disarray. At the moment it's the disaster room.

    The main sewing room is the My Studio, as in ask permission before entering.
    The other room is the Quilting Room. It has the LA and stash. It's also where whatever lands so it can get pretty messy.

    the room with my cutting table is The Studio-- that's also where my other art supplies and tools including the jewelry bench, drawing table, assembly table and power tools that I use to assemble sculptures and stretchers for the Fiber pieces that need to be mounted. It's always a major mess.

    The room (really a former bedroom with archway opening into trunk room and walk in closet) that contains my sewing machines, fabric/batting/thread/embellishment storage, design wall, and home office is called the Quilting studio,--it also has a guest bed in it which I am considering taking down since we only have overnight guests a couple of times a year. Come to think of it, this room is also always a major mess....
