    I love my sewing room :)

    When we moved into our new house almost two years ago, I finally got my own sewing room. It has been a work in progress but I love it. I am hoping that I will be able to get as nice of a space in our next home in AZ this summer. It is a military move so you never know what you end up with

    All my furniture came from Ikea and most from the scratch and dent section but any damage at all is barely noticeable . My sewing desk and computer desk are identical and were only $129 each. The black bookcase was only $60 and the white cabinet $120. The cutting area are actually two taller 4 drawer dressers back to back so there is storage for rulers and lots of other quilting items; both came from the scratch and dent section and were only $120 each. The tall dresser ($50) next to the computer desk holds my beading and scrapbooking supplies.

    Looks great. Moving so often would freak me out. Don't know how I could move all my stuff that often. I have only lived in 4 different homes since I was born so I have no experience in moving. Great room, enjoy, and thanks for your service to our nation.

    It is wonderful to have your own space for your crafts. Yours looks great and you have been very creative and frugal with your purchases.

    Thanks everyone for your kind words! Tartan, I cleaned it up before taking those pictures...I am working on several projects right now so there is a lot more going on I do like a clean sewing space though and have to periodically tidy it up...

    What a fabulous space you have! I can understand why you are wondering what lies ahead in AZ.

    It does my heart good to see another quilter out there with a tidy space. I take a lot of good-hearted teasing but I cannot function any other way. Just my nature. :-) I sometimes think I enjoy quilting and sewing so much because then I get to tidy everything up.

    Enjoy your space. It's terrific.

    best,
    d
    My best is the least I can do.

    You have an awesome sewing room. Thanks to you and your family for your service to our Country. You are right, with a military move you never know what you will end up with.

    Your room is great! I didn't know that Ikea had a scratch and dent section but will be sure to check that out. You got some great deals

    Love your room.. With my last move I lost mine .. I am trying to figure out now how to fit my bedroom and sewing room into one 10x12 room LOL . Everything is in storage right now. I do not envy you another move.

    So nice and neat!!! I have been keeping my closet door in the spare bedroom shut because it's such a fabric mess! You may have inspired me - maybe.

    We are heading to Fort Huachuca, AZ the end of June. It is in Sierra Vista, AZ about an hour south of Tuscon. I found out that Sierra Vista has a quilt shop but will appreciate all the help I can get from fellow AZ quilters I have already "met" some ladies through this board from AZ and that will make this move so much easier. I actually checked up on the availability of a quilt shop before I checked out the local schools (I still have a High Schooler!)
