    Red face My "new" Sewing Room

    My DH has just finished re-doing my sewing room. He made 2 desk tops with recesses for my Bernina 820 & my Juki 98Q. I also have included a couple of vintage machines which I have displayed.
    He than added some drawers & finished with a separate table for my Babylock Serger which I can move out of the way whan I am not using it. Hope these turn out. I LOVE it.

    So when can you send your hubby this way to work on my room. I am so green with envy... but happy for you.

    Your sewing room is awesome. Love how the vintage sewing machines are displayed. Oh! by the way I just got my vintage sewing machine today from a seller on craigslist gulfport. It is a singer spartan. Needs a new belt, did not come with any attachments or bobbin. I will take a picture of it and post it later.

    How lucky you have such a handy Hubby!!! Your sewing room is great. Wish I had a space so organized and plenty of room to work in....
    Families are like old quilts....although they tend to unravel at times...each can be stitched back together with love.

    A friend of mine just sent me an email asking me if I am interested in getting a Singer Spartan - OMG I have just picked up 5 machines in the past 6 weeks. She knows someone who has one & wants to get rid of it. The pic I saw of one on the internet looks very similar to the FW that I just purchased my eBay Canada. I don't know what to say as I am running out of room. My "dream" is to get a Singer "red eye" but it's a big dream as they are very hard to come by where I live.

    I should also point out that the lovely shelf on the right side of the room was made by DH. He's a keeper for sure.

    Both of your rooms are very nice, nice use of space. I like the corner table in your sewing room where the little machine is that is a good idea for a corner space to be used up.

    It's funny I have been sewing for years especially when our girls were little. He had very little interest then but since I took up quilting he has been wonderful, helpful & likes to spend as much time on the QB as I do !!! He has lots of ideas to make things easier for me & I sincerely appreciate his help. He will be thrilled with the comments from members on this Board.

    He did a great job on those desks! You are so lucky to have a room like that.

    I love the desks he built for you. Just the right size. I have the room size but no DH to build such beautiful things for me. He's a keeper for sure. Maybe he could post simple plans he designs for cabinets etc.

    Both of your rooms are so nice. Love your vintage machines and how you have displayed them. The sewing tables your hubby made look awesome. What a wonderful place you have to be so creative. Enjoy!!
    This too shall pass.

    That is a beautiful workspace...do you ever wander into other parts of your house? I could spend all my time there with little problem! Enjoy your new "digs"!

    Consider yourself very blessed to have someone in your family who and help you build your dreams. It's wonderful.
