    nice use of space. sigh. I have a desk or the kitchen table. I may just give up sewing and go back to crocheting or crosstitch for the next yr. I envy your space

    Use what is best for you!!! When we moved here, I took the 'master' bedroom. Mostly because it has hardwood floors. Even DH agreed that it was a better idea.

    BTW we are renting or we might have done something about the floors.

    I love your BiGGGGGGG space. Mine is a small bedroom but it makes me happy to go there and just sit and enjoy "my space". Enjoy yours!!!

    What a nice big work space! I actually moved a few months ago and had to down size. The sewing desk my Hubby refinished for me wouldn't even go through the doorway after we removed the door. Now my "small" machine is on a card table and the "big" machine is on the dining table. But I do still have a sewing room and am very, very happy about that.

    Good for you! I did the same thing last year and it is working really well for me. I sleep in the smallest bedroom - why not? You only need a bed to sleep but quilting is a whole different ballgame.

    I'm jealous! We just moved 5 months ago & my sewing room is 'in waiting" Way too many things to be done first before we can do mine! But looks GREAT & ENOY that's what it's for!

    My husband and I recently had a discussion about swapping my sewing space with the master bedroom - his suggestion. I'm still digesting the idea. We don't use our bedroom except for sleeping (unless naps or ill) and it would allow me to have a very nice space for my huge hobby. It would also allow me to have space for a twin or day bed for a resting/reading spot and also for a place for my teen granddaughter to use when she comes to visit. I'm still thinking about it. right now I have no place to set up my EZ quilter (short arm type quilting frame for use with domestic machine). Using the master bedroom would allow me that space. I like the fact that you used your space the way you need to!!

    Looks great! As my family leaves, I tend to take over more of the house with sewing too!

    You'll enjoy your large space so much. A great idea and the result is really nice.

    I'm having a blast in that room. It's the first room I go to in the morning and the last room I leave before I go to bed at night. I feel so much more productive in there and my sewing goes much more smoothly and is more fun in my new space.
