    I started out like that a few years ago. Now I have two sewing rooms.

    I love those tables.

    That's a really nice set up. I like the tables for the flow of work. I'm sending you warm wishes for lots of happiness and creativity.

    What a nice set up - there are times when I wish I still only needed a small area instead of 1 huge room that is spilling out into every room in the house. And I do mean every room--I needed to change the foot and hand sewing needles -I got them and on my way back to the machine they got lost- 2 hours later I found them setting on the bathroom countertop

    You said it well. I have way more than I need. And spend way to much time looking for a color I know I have. And after I go re-buy it, It turns up. I have got to get my stash organized so I can see at a glance what I have.

Since I organized my small room and put all my fabrics on shelves to see I've spent a lot less money on more fabric and can usually find something that will work for what I'm doing. My daughter loves shopping in my sewing room now too.

    What's wonderful is that you have your own space! Soon it will be overflowing with patterns, fabric, projects...I remember when I first started I had to use the kitchen table, oh thank goodness those days are gone.

    Love the tables they are beautiful and looks like just the right height to sit and sew! looks like you have the start of a beautiful quilt on there too. I think it looks like a nice area. Don't worry about having a small stash. Either you will be like me and turn around and try to figure out where all that came from or be like my DH who chooses to buy only for one project at a time. How every you choose, I hope you enjoy your new area and I think your off to a wonderful start!...
    God Bless,

    Fabrics mate year round so don't be surprised when it keeps growing. You have a very nice start. Lots of web sites have great fabric sales now so go ahead and jump on those sales. SHHHHH! I hear the fabrics mating as I type.

    We all had to start someplace.........I have THREE places for my sewing. Cut in the kitchen using the island........Sew/iron in the laundry/office, stash in the guest bed room........So much fun..........At this time, I don't see a change in this arrangement......Had it this way for five years........I can see many quilts in my future. enjoy your space and soon you will have so mu ch fabric, UFO's, and other things to use in your quilting, you will have your room FULL.
    Happy quilting

    For years my sewing "room" was a closet with bi-fold doors and an old desk with closet shelf above it. My opinion is that organization is key for a small area and actually more efficient than larger spaces. Too much space, too much accumulation, and you don't know what you have, so it doesn't get used. When we moved from that house, I restricted myself to one wall of the 10 ft. x 13 ft. laundry room plus an ironing board. (I have three "empty" bedrooms now since we are officially empty-nesters and I refuse to move my sewing stuff into one of them because I know I will just grow to fill it and not use half of what is in there.) My custom cabinet builder husband built me some beautiful, custom designed cabinets/sewing center for my sewing area and I try to keep it organized and limit my stash to what fits there. Otherwise I just buy fabrics for the project at hand. I love your uncluttered look, and hope you can keep it that way. You will gradually add to it I am sure...maybe organizing things on the walls and things with drawers under your tables, but if you can stay organized, that space will give you many years of sewing pleasure! Thanks for sharing.

    Sometimes I wish I could just convince myself to toss everything I have and start all over again... like some of the posters above, I have so much stuff and it takes up so much room, that I end up spending all of my time organizing it and less time sewing. Then, I still can't find what I want/need. It gets very discouraging to have an out-of-control stash. Boy, I sound like a downer, don't I?! That wasn't my intention. What I meant to say is - I love your cute little space and I'm sure you will have tons of fun there!!

    The chest has my fabric and batting. I have those little black containers holding my cut pieces.
