    My Sewing Quilting space

    Ok here is my sewing/quilting space. I have reworked it several times. It is small but it works for my neice and I and whoever else happens in. I hope you enjoy it. My husband built the cutting table and mounted the file drawers on it. The two bottom ones store 1-3 yd peices filed on file folders. He also re worked the old buffet which is now my ironing station, with stash storage below folded in drawers. He built and put up the numerous shelves for me. I hope you enjoy viewing the photos as much as I enjoy having the room in which to sew and quilt.

    Your sewing room is great. You are lucky to have a husband that can custom build for you. A bit off topic....I noticed you have a Conair Fabric Steamer. I need a fabric steamer and am wondering if you like your Conair?

    Love your room - thank you for sharing all the photos. It is so fun to see how everyone keeps their sewing areas.

    Wonderful space! You've done a great job at organizing.

    JanetM .... I bought a Conaire fabric steamer when they first came out (from QVC - what a mistake) and now rarely use it. Not a complete waste because it has come in handy several times, but wished I had waited and bought it much cheaper. I thought it would replace my iron but not so, my iron does a much better job on most clothing. I have not used it with quilting ... yet.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Great room. Especially like the hammer on the wall (don't know why, but noticed it right off)...Every woman needs her hammer. I also have a small space (extra bedroom) and have a rather large book shelf that stores all kinds of stuff. Handy husband. My husband...not so. I do all the building. LOL

    Thanks. I recently bought some fancy beaded tops that have bubble hems. They are impossible to iron so I am looking for a steamer.

    Wow! A handy and willing husband! Rare combination. Mine is willing (Sometimes) but has 12 thumbs. I like your well-organised room. Wishing you many happy hours in it.

    I chuckle at the hammer hanging on the peg board! I have a hammer and a tiny anvil in my sewing room. I use them to set grippers with, especially on thicker fabrics!
