    WOW! You have a fabric store in your fabulous new sewing room. I think a lot of us are jealous. Now that you're organized, we can expect to see some beautiful quilts emerging like butterflies from cocoons!

    Tomorrow we are getting a nice corner desk so I can set up the sewing machine and the serger. It is going to take some work and rearranging to get the big desk I have now out and the new one in. It will be a good opportunity to do some reorganizing and all that fun stuff.
    The main work room is 11' 7" X 14' 5", with a closet about 5' square. That alone is a huge space to me, but the "bonus" room really is a bonus. (It is even larger but there are only a couple of feet before the sloped ceiling which goes almost to the floor.) All I truly need for sewing is in the one big room. If you don't have floor space, go vertical, is my motto, which is the reason for the floor to ceiling fabric shelves, and a couple of shelves about 18" from the ceiling that weren't even showing in the photos. I wouldn't do every wall this way or it makes the room feel like it's caving in on you. I bought an inexpensive folding stool that is stowed behind the door so can reach everything I need.

    Wow!! You did an awesome job utilizing your sewing space. I love your wall of fabric. It's inspiring just looking at it. I like all your pegboard and how you organized your cutting island. I love it all! You just need a mini refridgerator and a microwave and you'll never come out. Thanks for sharing.

    You created an amazing studio and little alcove. No wonder why it took so long, but it's worth it. I just don't think you have enough fabric!

    Fantastic sewing studio! Would you mind sharing the dimensions of you shelving units? Did you build those also and was it hard to do? Did you build them especially to hold the shoe boxes for the fat quarters? I just love you new space!! Blessed you are...

    Wow, that is a great space. It looks like you could set up your own LQS, let us know when it opens.

    Awesome. I know you will create lots of beautiful quilts in that space. I love the scenic quilt you have hanging on your wall.
    Gives me hope. We are supposed to start on my quilting space this summer. I don't think it will be as spectacular as yours, but it will be my own space. Yee haw.

    Hey now really. you have WAY to much fabric. you either need to send all of us on this board some material or get busy and make some quilts. they say " the one with the most material when they die wins" Now they say "the one with the most did not sew enough" lol wonderful room. I will watch for mine in the mail.
    SMILE- it will make everyone wonder what you are up to.
    Stay strong and keep looking up.

    All your hard work was worth it. That is a sewing studio to die for! I love your storage wall. The usefulness of the wall space above your serger is impressive. I showed your pictures to my girlfriend and she thinks your pressing/cutting table is brilliant, as do I. VERY good job. How long did it take you to plan that all out? Did you try it out on graph paper first? How big is the room?
