    Wink My room in progress-My first post

    My space is an unused small bedroom. I have filled the closet with the cubical storage units and ventilated baskets.
    My sewing tables are precut wood that I covered in foam then duck cloth. I attached a set of banquet table legs and then trimmed them to a comfortable height using a tube cutter (really easy tool to use). The tables work great, really sturdy and they cut down on vibrations.
    I have a lot of natural light during the day, and lots of task lighting for the evenings.
    this is my "hole" as the guys (husband and grown sons) call it where I spend most of my evenings.

    Wow! Love those cubbies!
    Why do I keep trying to find the "like" button?

    I love it. So organized, yet not quite neat......only two sewing machines? I am getting ready to teach quilting to anyone who wants to come and join me in March (I am calling it my MARCH EXTRAVAGANZA) and have three cutting spaces and three sewing machines set up. But it looks like ol' man Winter might have interfered (spell) by promising snow and bad weather this Saturday. I have been cleaning and rearranging for a week now, and think I am finally ready for whoever wants to join me. My sewing room has never been this clean and organized. Sorry ladies, I don't know how to do pics; and my daughter isn't sure she can show me how. Maybe we'll try it soon.

    In 4th from the right hand side there is a green square box, click on there and it will let you add pictures. No excuse now, so we need pictures please. Wish I had more than 6 square feet to set up.

    It is a lovely room. It is nice to have your own personal space to use for quilting. I used the dining table for years and I got so sick of getting everything out, putting it away before meals etc.
