    My space

    I don;t have as nice of a space as some of you, but I am lucky to have a small bedroom that I can use for sewing (and I put the elliptical in there too, as I am sure as heck not using it in the garage!)



    My stash is in bins and boxes on the shelf, and I am using an old desk I had for small cutting and for storing items. I have books and rules on the top, and a small TV to watch when I use the elliptical. I have my scissors and rotary cutters on hooks in the cork board in the main desk cubby.


    I have a folding table for my machine and use a folding table for big cutting projects (I rearrange with another table to FMQ).

    My husband added really strong casters on a rolling cart that has all my threads, pins, safety pins and other small flotsam, and I have a scrap bin (which is full! I need to get going on a scrappy quilt!) on top, and I can roll it to wherever is convenient to have it.

    I have the same amount of space to use as you, and I love the color of the walls! Is that a pumpkin color?

    I love your space, it is so nice and organized. Can't wait to start unpacking. I have not sewn in the last two weeks.

    It looks great, it is not the size that matters! It just matters that you enjoy your space and can be creative in it.

    That's a neat space for a small bedroom. Looks like you take advantage of every vertical inch. Nice.

    It is a lot bigger space than I have. LOL I can barely walk in mine but I am thankful for what I have. Your space is very nice.
