    I had some time and some scraps....

    As you can tell from my before pictures, it's easy to understand why I couldn't find anything! So I took out my scraps and made an organizer that holds my stabilizer, mini iron, blades, needles and Elmer's glue.Moved the computer and brought in a second table so my Singer 160 had a home, put new grippies on both foot peddles ( they don't budge!) Moved the printer stand and book case into the closet, finished an orphan block into a wall hanging and made new pin cushion/thread catchers for both machines and shortened the curtains so they don't hang on the heat register....WHEW!!! Oh and I added padding and made a new cover for my seat..tufting is not easy by yourself. Now that's done I have some projects to finish up

    So with a little effort, my room could look like yours?

    Not likely.

    Your room looks VERY nice - great place to sew, quilt, embroider, etc, and I love the organizer!

    Love your Singer 160... I have one too. She's great!

    Do you mind my asking - is your sewing table (the one with the white machine) this one that Wal-Mart sells?

    http://www.walmart.com/ip/Sauder-Sew...ishes/15690337

    I've been wondering about that table...if yours is the same one, can you offer any details? Is it really heavy? (I would have to move it upstairs to my sewing room; I think it comes in pieces so that would be do-able.) Do the wheels roll easily?

    The table is indeed from Walmart and I didn't think the pieces were too heavy. I had it delivered and was able to bring it in and assemble it by myself and it rolled really easily to the sewing room. I am planning to buy another and give my Singer her very own. I really like the table it doesn't shake even at high speed and the organizer cubbies hold everything within reach. I think it's a good deal for the price I really couldn't afford a thousand dollar sewing table and this works for me. I quilt and embroider with that machine and have never had stability issues.

    The chair back is actually my sewing machine cover but it hangs so nice on the back of the chair when I'm sewing and anyone that enters can read the embroidery piece that says " any day spent sewing is a good day" Makes me smile every time!

    Your room is wonderful. I also have the sewing table from Walmart. I agree it is very sturdy and I use it the same as you for embroidery and quilting. Very pleased with it.

    Thanks so much for the info about the table! I noticed yesterday that it's marked down to $99. I might just have to order one.. I think it would be great in my sewing room too.

    Love your space. I would be happy if my space was as organized as your first pictures. Whoops, just admitted I'm a slob.
