    Talking Presenting my re-vamped sewing room

    DH made the cutting centre and the ironing centre. Still to do - small shelf by ironing centre, maybe a shelf above the cutting table & making the fabric sling for behind the ironing centre Just a small box of filing to do yet. My bookshelf storage is limited so everything has to earn a place on it. My room is small but it works!
    My hubby is the greatest!

    A room to call your own- isn't it wonderful. Nice space and what a great hubby for helping you out. Mine is an enabler too.

    Nice room and great hubby. One suggestion though. Since your room is small and your book case is tucked in behind another table and might be hard to get to. Have hubby to take a piece of wood, add casters to it so that it can roll in and out of its little cubby. The bookcase is pressed wood so it probably wouldn't hold up to the wheels on its own which is why I'd put them on a piece of sturdy wood and put the bookcase on it. I have several of these cases, the tall ones are all that have survived the heavy books. That is because after the small ones shelves started sagging in the middle I got smart, I took one of the shelves out and took it to Home Depot and had them to cut me wooden shelves the same size and put them in place of the pressed wood and then for that stationary shelves in the middle I just put the wooden shelve on top of the stationary one for support. Works great and now that I use them for some of my fabric I bought extra pegs and more wood shelves and added more shelves to the case that it came with. When you have small rooms you have to creative and you sure are.

    Looks like it will work very well. Look up how to fold fabric using a ruler and I think you will be able to get more in the cabinet.

    My Janome is behind the box of filing, the Singer 99 is under the sewing desk, the 222 is downstairs ready to take to quilting and the Pfaff 122SE is currently at quilting. Grandma's 201 is waiting in the wings for anew position in another room - maybe downstairs?

    Sweety it looks like we are both in the same boat as far as how "big" our "little" sewing rooms are. I have started going UP the walls too as there is no more room on the floor but for my walk way to the sewing machines & cutting table. My big ironing board is in DH little Man Cave.

    Behind the box of filing! And others are under the sewing desk or downstairs ready to go to quilting group. For some reason DH doesn't like carrying the Pfaff 1222SE upstairs and downstairs. Go figure.
