    Come Tour My Sewing Room

    I've recently re-arranged, took out a cabinet and replaced it with a table. I've sorted buttons, wrapped and bagged ribbons, laces and trims, pressed and wrapped fabric on comic boards, hung things, and now I'm pretty happy with it. Here's some pics...
    From the doorway...


    To the right, I have two big shelves. I hung "S" hooks to hang my cutting rulers on the side of one shelf



    There are two small plastic topped folding tables and a chair for a guest in the corner. This sewing machine and cabinet is my absolute favorite. I learned to sew on a set up identical to this.
    From the window, I can see my goats up on the hill, or walking back and forth to the water trough.


    This table holds my embroidery machine, serger and Husquvarna/Viking Rose. I also use it for my laptop. I love all my threads above. I can hook my laptop up to the TV on the wall and use it either for a monitor, or to watch shows recorded or live through our wireless network. The stained glass clock I made years ago.


    My china cabinet with a load of quilting and knit fabrics


    This little wall holds my buttons. That was a chore sorting them. Lights, colors, darks, inbetweens, metal and metal look.


    A couple of my fun little signs



    This is it... My fun little room, packed, but still room for more.

    Wow... that is ultra-cool. What a nice setup you have!!

    Also, I am totally jealous of your nice floor. My sewing room has carpet which is a huge pain!

    Beautiful, it is inspirational to see rooms like this. I have been sorting and organizing for weeks and it still looks like a bomb exploded.

    Thank you! All the floors in the house are laminate and vinyl. I would say easy to clean, but I hardly ever mop. This is a modular home, and we had it set on a full basement 1 1/2 years ago. I have 2 dogs and so much dirt gets tracked in. I knew there was no way I was going to have one inch of wall to wall carpeting.

    I've got this fabric I just purchased to add a colorful valance to the room. It, jammie pants, slippers and the next mystery quilt hosted by "paintmejudy" are on the list of things that will help get it back to it normal messiness. I'm really happy with how it came out, and look forward to using it!

    Hi, I see you have a Husqvarna Rose embroidery machine. How do you like it? I bought one and have bit been able to use it yet. I have been so busy with work.

    Fabulous room! I have a 401A, too. It was a graduation gift from my parents back in 1980. We have a cabinet just like yours at the LQS where I work, but it holds a Touch & Sew.
    Love the little plaque about creative minds! Years ago, (he's been gone for 17 years now) my dad bought me a button that said, "I'm not messy, I'm creative". I wore it on my coat, but it must have fallen off somewhere.

    I have wood laminate in my sewing room but put a braided rug down because I was told the rolling chairs would mark up the floor. Does anyone know if that's true. I guess I could go with stationary chairs with felt on the legs. I hate the rug. I love your room tho

    sept97, I don't know if the wheels are damaging the floor or not. They doesn't seem to be doing any damage, but who knows over time. I like to be able to roll from table to table, so it isn't a concern I have. The quality of the laminate may have something to do with how much rolling it will take.

    amyjo, I haven't used my Rose for embroidery since I got my Brother PE-780D last year. I bought the Rose new, years ago, and it was pricey back then. I only have a small hoop for it, and honestly it was a lot harder for me to figure out than the Brother, which was under $900. With the Rose, I had to use a dongle to put patterns on, and could only do 3X3's. My Brother does 5X7's and it is so much easier to use. I can download designs to my computer and transfer them over to a stick memory that plugs right into the machine.

    I do like the Rose for sewing though, and I have such an investment in it that I will not recover if I try to sell her, so here she stays. Technology has come a long way in a short period of time. It is a good machine, and has a blanket stitch on it which my 401A does not have.

    Great sewing room. Organization is a must in a sewing room. A great place to make some quilts.
