    My quilting/sunroom space

    I have taken over our sunroom for my quilting space. I think I have finally got the room set up the way I want it, for now anyway. I am proud to show off pics of my new custom built quilt storage table that my dh and i built. We got the idea for the quilt storage table from IKEAhackers.com. Instead of buying the bookcases from IKEA, we decided to build it with melamine plywood so that we could custom size my storage area on the front, back and sides. Here is the link to what we were going to build using two bookcases from IKEA.
    http://www.ikeahackers.net/2012/06/q...h-storage.html

    The 1st picture below is a view of the quilt storage table from the front, including Zinfandel, one of our four cats. The two storage compartments on each end are 11" high and 16" wide, perfect to store the artbin containers I already had. I like the 12 smaller storage compartments. Already had the striped storage containers from the dollar tree. Perfect for storing fat quarters.
    The 2nd pic is a view of the quilt storage table from one end. We extended the overhang to store my sewing machine and accuquilt go totes. Also can store stuff in the middle.
    The 3rd pic is a view of the quilt storage table from the back side. I opted to make all of these compartments the same size.
    The 4th pic is my sewing/embroidery machine area. The sewing machine table is a dumpster dive find several years ago, the chair is from IKEA, colored storage shelves from Michael's, and wire storage shelves from IKEA (a couple years ago).
    The 5th pic is my vertical pegboard storage rack. Saw the hint on the quiltingboard.com. Now I can have my quilting notions out in the open without taking up much space. It is on casters so I can move it wherever.
    The last pic is my HV mega quilter, which is giving me problems at the moment. It is skipping stitches. I am in the process of trying different things; rethreading machine, changing needle, rewinding the bobbin, checking upper tension and bobbin tension. Hopefully one of these will solve the problem

    Thanks for looking.

    Very nice setup. BTW I have a HV Megaquilter, without the computer. It has been to the repair shop 4 times since Jan. first, and is now waiting to take a trip to Tennessee to see if the "experts" there can fix it. I finally found out that there were some "issues" that have been there for years, but HV hasn't chosen to tell the owners of these machines. They replaced all the electronic boards in it, and it still is not working. It would work for about 20 minutes and then the tension would go wacko, stitch length would go crazy. If I turned it off and waited a half hour, then turn it on, it would work fine....for another 20 minutes. Now it is making a terrible metal on metal noise. UGH!!!! Good luck finding your problem.

    this is really spectacular. May I borrow your husband for a few weeks. I showe my dh and he said that's very nice, you should have something like that. I told him that her dh did that for her and he said that's very nice of him he has now hiding behind his newspaper.

    That's really a great organized room. I love that you are able to store everything where you can see it. YHave a great time in your new room.

    DD55 - oh my goodness, what a fabulous room! I love the ginormous table and all the storage you have. Sweetwaterquilter's DH and mine must have been separated at birth. Over the last couple of days I've been reading these boards, finding great ideas, and attempting to get organized. About every half hour I make a suggestion for what I'd like to do...he shakes his head and walks away.

    Really neat room!!

    Do you have neighbors? The reason I ask is, I would be wondering if they were peeking at me while I sewed...LOL

    Your room looks wonderful! Check your encoder wheels and be sure they are running smoothly on the tracks. If they are not they can cause skipped stitches.
