    Love it and I'm sure you will be even more creative in such a neat place. I can pick fabrics that work together just from the picture!

    Lovely room I love the color on your walls. I sew in the basement and have that ugly wall board.

    I just wanted to mention something I saw in your pictures and that is you have your magnetic pin cushion sitting on your sewing machine. Be very careful when you have magnets by your machine ....... you guessed it ....... I have a magnet bowl that mechanics use for bolts and stuff ...... I was packing up from quilting at our RV resort and sat the bowl on top of my machine. Now my fancy stitches sew back wards instead of forward. I have not looked into how much it would cost to have it fixed as it still sews beautifully going in the right direction. Live and learn.

    Your sewing room is so cute!!!! I like an organized space. I tend to sew much better. If mine gets too disorganized, I tend to stress a bit.

    nice room i am in the process of setting up my first quilt/sewing room. do you have any suggestions i can use. as well how do you get the fabric to stand up on the shelves like that. i went a little overboard when in the states this winter and came back with over 100 yards of fabric so i have a little to store, lol, any suggestions there. i have a bookshelf, a bookshelf/dresser and a sewing table that folds up into a cube with storage in that. so what would you recommend for purchasing useful items. i also have alot of swedish weaving fabric and wool to store as well. i could go on but i will stop here for now. thanks for liistening.

    Your room looks sooooo good - peaceful, organized, a great place to work with beautiful fabric. And what did I focus on???? Your special quote on "only God is perfect; our quilts do not have to be."

    Looks very nice. I actually need to get some cabinets. It's too dusty here for just shelves.

    I love your room too. May I ask where you got the lidded boxes on top of the bookshelves? I've been trying to find decorative boxes with lids for my bedroom closet to hide stuff in and haven't found just the right thing yet.

    They are comic book cards and I purchased them at a comic book store. Mine cost $11 for 100 plus tax. I purchased 400 cards and used every last one. If you check My messy sewing room post- you will see what it used to look like. Another board member suggested the comic book cards and I liked the idea. The more you put on the shelf the straighter they stand. I got tired and just started putting mine the other way and it looks fine. I would suggest just making a post and ask for suggestions, you will get a lot of response from members like I did. Good luck and show us!

    The liddded boxes you see on top of the bookshelves are pattern boxes. I purchased most of them at Joanns a long time ago so I don't know what kind they have now as I haven't purchased any in a long time.

    Thank you. I don't have a problem with a lot of dust in this room. I get some but it has not affected my fabric.

    So sorry to hear about the magnet. I normally don't keep it there, I just picked it up and it just ended up there. but I didn't even think about it messing up the sewing machine.. And I love red so that is what I chose several years ago. Thank you.
