    My new sewing area at the cottage

    I got tired of the sewing at the kitchen table and then having to put it all away so I took out a set of bunk beds and set up a sewing area. And then when we need the extra bed, I put the design walls (one not pictured) across the desks and put one of the mattresses from one of the sofa beds on it and have another double bed. Its very cosy and when I am in the middle of a project, I can just pull the curtain across and leave it till I get back to it.
    Also from here I can see the tv, out the front window and still talk with everyone in the living room. I can't wait till the next trip up to start a project.

    Great idea. It is always better when you have a dedicated sewing space.

    Can you tell me where to find the white wire shelved carrier-looks like you have spray starch in it. Neat storage tool. Thanks for posting.

    Sewing rooms are more important than an extra bedroom for sure.

    You just proved the old adage that "Necessity is the mother of invention". What a great conversion & good for you.
    Enjoy.

    Wish I had a sewing space at camp. Sadly our camp is in the middle of no where no road access no power and we have to travel thru swamps etc on a 4 wheeler to get there so I'm limited to hauling hand sewing only.

    Good Afternoon,

    I LOVE your sewing room. What is the object that is holding the iron, scissors, spray starch & misc. items? It is a really cool. Thanks for the information.

    Have a blessed day.
