    You did a great job on your room. I love the totes! Everything is so nicely organized. I can only imagine that you'd never want to leave the room.

    Oh my goodness! I love it and there's an extra chair for me! The thing I love most is the vintage sewing machine and cover and the classy way you have it displayed. I love that!

    Fantastic room! And so organized! It's how I imagine my room will look like when I get to "Quilter's Heaven" (It certainly won't happen in this lifetime! LOL) Your very lucky!

    I found them at one of our local quilt stores but have seen them in several quilting stores. The store is Sewing Sensations (Canada).

    I have a Designer 1 which has been a great machine! However, I was lucky to be able to buy a Diamond Deluxe last summer. One thing to consider if you buy the Diamond - you will need a deep counter top or desk to accomodate the largest hoop! Until hubby built the new counter tops, I wasn't able to use the big hoop!

    My mom's mother-in-law gave her the Singer seventy years ago! It's so nice to have a place to display this family treasure. Thanks for your kind words!

    little machine on the treadle stand?

    What kind of machine is this? I love the setup but why is it hidden in the corner? just curious! Your room is amazing. I have that amount of space but not the wonderful furniture. Gives me great ideas for my renovation..............whenever!!

    LOVE it!... So neat and organized. I love how you have the dome/coffin lid hanging under your machine / shelf. Cool idea. Ours our scattered around the house sitting on different pcs of furniture, hidden under their lids, although it does help keep the dust off. Really like your room.

    It's a Janome XPression embellishment machine. It doesn't use thread - you use roving etc. to make your own felt etc. It weighs very little so is easy to move if necessary. It's not a machine I would use every day and it won't fit on the new counter tops. If I move the "lady with the scarf" out of that area, then I have room to sit there and have fun with the machine. I also can move it onto the cutting table as it's different than a regular sewing machine. I hope you can renovate soon - it's so nice to have things organized now. Hubby bought the wood to make the drawers for the
    cupboards under the counter tops so that will also help me keep track of sewing notions etc. and have them handy by the machines.

    I'm not sure what model it is. I used to know but have forgotten. I have tried the machine and it sews beautifully. However, I use it only for display and for the memories. My mom used to sew heavy jackets etc. on that machine - amazing machines!

    What a wonderful room. My hubby is very handy too. It makes it so much easier when you want things done.
    Great space.
