    My new baby is eeady to go!

    The repurpose of the dining room to quilting area is nearly complete. This is the home for my new S16. The cabinet is 72x40when open qnd 40x23 when closed, kind of like an old Singer parlor cabinet.

    The room still needs a pressing station. The Janome 1600 may come out to join its big sister, if I can recut the top of the table in the upper right corner to fit it in flush. But now is time to play for a while.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it difficult to plan the day.

    I would be on the ceiling with a great sewing space like that, too! Sooner or later you will have to ground yourself so that your sewing machine doesn't fall on the floor. LOL

    It looks as if you're head over heels about this project, and I can't blame you! (Sorry, I couldn't resist!) It looks great.

    Looks like a lot of fun and your space is wonderful. Great use for a dining room too. Mine gets very little use anymore.
