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

    That is all you need to create beautiful quilts. Nice set up. When I started, my machine was in the corner of my bedroom. After the children moved out, then I gained a room. Your time will come.

    I love those tables.

    I purchased those tables for Lowes. I went on line and ordered them for delivery. They were a little less than $130.00 each.

    A word about those tables. I ordered them from Lowes.com and had them delivered. They are actually dining tables that go with a corner unit for a breakfast nook type thing with the benches. I did not get the whole setup, just the tables. They look nice, match my bedroom furniture and gives me enough space for now. The chair I purchased at a flea market for next to nothing. I put one of those cutting mats across where the two tables butt against each other and have no problem with that spacing between the tables.

    Nice set up. Just you wait......pretty soon you'll be like "Where did all this come from". Great tables!

    Nice work space and I like your Brother machine too.

    Any little corner you can have for a dedicated sewing room is great. Your set-up looks wonderful!

    Just remember that we all had to start somewhere. Yours may not be big, YET, but give it a little time. Less things to get in the way of the creative process. HaHa!! BTW: I love, love, love the chest you have your fabric & batting in. If you ever decide to get rid of it, I'm first in line for it. Ha!!!

    I agree with Granny CheeChee. It will not be long and you will need more storage and space. You will also rearrange the space a million times until you find what works best for you. I have found that a "U" shape works well. I have my machine in front of me and table to my left with a little cutting mat for quick fixes or trims and my ironing board lowered to my seated height to the right. Easy to turn in my chair for a quick press to a seam rather than be up and down the whole time. Have fun and enjoy your space.

    I am enchanted that you have everything (ironing board, cutting area, sewing machine) in one room! I have stuff spread over 3 rooms - not because I have so much, just that I am so unorganized....

    Looks great. I know it looks impressive when you see the post of people that have stashes that would make some small quilt stores look bare but I've found out that it you have too much, especially if you can't display it to see what's there, you end up forgetting what you have and buy more. 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.

    Thanks everyone for your response. I am fortunate that I do have a large bedroom with plenty of space.

    I started small about 11 years ago much like your setup. It worked great, but as the years came and went my sewing room went through quite a few upgrades. I now have 2 rooms.

    looks wonderful!! I see you are throwing away the bolt cardboard, you an cut it in half and fold your fabric over it. I use those for yardage cuts!
