    Patti, I posted it for inspiration-feel free to copy! And I will admit that it was not an original idea-I was inspired by this picture http://www.bhg.com/decorating/storag...keover/#page=1

    Thank you! I am glad you were inspired by my pictures. I think organization is the key to giving us more space-good luck!

    Thanks so much, Tammy. But, I'm afraid that I can't loan out my hubby....I would miss him way too much.

    Yes, they are all full. I confess that I have a fabric addiction. But, in my defense, I worked in a quilt shop for quite a while and when it went out of business the owner paid my salary in fabric I am very generous, though, and I share with my friends all the time.

    Thank you! I am blessed!

    I have a Bernina 150 QE (that's the quilter's edition-that means it came with a quarter inch foot and a walking foot). I don't think they make it any more. I got it in 2000. It was a floor model, so it had a few miles on it and I got a nice deal.

    I also have an old Singer Featherweight that I take to classes-got it on EBay and it sows like a dream.

    In March 2011, I got a Handi-Quilter Sweet Sixteen-it is their sit down long arm. There is no frame or carriage-it's in a table and you move the fabric under the machine just like you do with your domestic machine. I love it! I figured out that in 20-25 quilts I will have it paid for because I was sending everything out to have it quilted and it was getting expensive!

    You do have a awesome sewing room! I would love to have your organization skills! I'm jealous
    It is easier to be wise for others than for ourselves.

    This is beautiful!
    I must stop looking on here! I somehow have visions of grandeur when I see beautiful rooms like yours. I tell myself that if only I had a room like that my sewing would be perfect! I do know better than that. I have a sewing room already and in fact just painted it and it is more than I will ever need and I do love it.

    You have an amazing husband and a wonderful room. Enjoy every minute in it. And.....if by chance it does improve your sewing and quilting, please don't tell me!

    My hubby's solution to the sun problem was to leave the hurricane shutters up all year round in my sewing room. Lucky you!!!!

    You are all so sweet to make such kind comments about my quilt room. Truth be told, none of the organization or cabinets or size of the room have made any improvements in my quilting. I was as happy sewing in the dark corner of my den in my previous house as I am quilting in this room. Just selecting the fabrics for a new project, cutting into that first piece with my rotary cutter, and then sitting down to my machine makes me happy. Whether I am laying my blocks out on the floor of my room, on a bed, or on my design wall, I love seeing my quilt come together. Quilting is a happy place for me, when I am quilting alone or with friends. I am just fortunate enough to have a wonderful husband with an amazing talent who loves me and enables my hobby.

    I have a passion for quilting-I love piecing, appliqueing, quilting, sewing on binding-every bit of it! And when you have a passion for something, you find a way and a place to do it that works best for you. I wish you all the joy that quilting brings.

    Well, you sure picked a good one (hubby, that is). The cabinets are beautiful and your studio is awesome. We are all green with envy.
