    Good golly Miss Molly! I want to come play at your house too! I love how you have it all so organized. That must have taken quite a bit of your time. I'm with some of the others, what I would give to have that kind of space. Actually, any space at the moment would do. I have plenty of fabric and no place left to sew. Congrats on your accomplishment, it was well earned!

I didn't buy at the show and he kept on after we got home so I said you buy it, and he did. I feel so blessed and I share my equipment with my quilting buddies. If you look closely, a lot of my furniture is repurposed. My cutting table is an old library table my mom got when a local high school closed. It is set on 2 by 4's glued together and routed out where the legs fit. after i got the ikea shorter units, I asked a friend to put a board on the table that would extend over the shelves, so I can cut those long borders. The storage underneath were acquired at a garage sale for $5 and just fit underneath the table. The desks beside my sewing area are tables my son scavaged from a nail salon that went out of business. My ironing board is a board screwed to the top of my mom's old ironing board. You know those older metal boards were so much sturdier than the new ones today. It has been a process over the last 5 years.

    I occasionally will quilt for a friend, but am always afraid I will mess it up. I make quilts for the joy of making them and give them away to family or donate to my church or when grandkids need something for an auction. Because I am so blessed, I share what I have with my quilting friends. they gather at my home and we sew together. It is my hobby that has turned into a passion for the craft. I learned a long time ago that if I am productive, I have to have order and good tools. It helps that my DH of 48 yrs tells me his purpose in life is to keep me happy. He's done a great job! LOL I have been reading these posts for a long time. I love the pictures of the quilts and have saved the pictures of many and this was my first post. Thank you all for all the encouraging comments. I will post some of my quilts that this space has produced.

    My Ambien ( I take it because my husband snores and a I am a light sleeper) which makes me have wild dreams, so when I saw your studio, I thought I must be dreaming!! What a fantasy sewing room! My room is 10 x 12 so yours is truly a "dream" to me!!!

    Wow! Your room looks great. Wish I had a big room like yours...doubt it would be this organized because I can destroy a sewing room in less than 15 minutes. I bet it makes you happy being able to see your beautiful fabrics.

    For those who want to visit: what is your favorite coffee? Will someone else bring some goodies? What a treat to have space like that!

    I think your sewing space is as big as my house! You must feel like you are in heaven when you are sewing. I'm jealous but glad you enjoy your awesome room. I bet you crank out some beauties with all that inspiration.

    Your space could be labeled "Quilter's Heaven) it's wonderful, shows a great deal of thought and love of the "quilting" part of your life.

    Amazing space! However that is not a den, it is a cavern. No you would not be bragging, you just would be telling the truth. It is great you share with your friends, it is clearly a well loved space.

    Know just how you feel, I have 6 quare feet and I thought I had a lot of material, I have NOTHING compared to many of you ladies. If I outlive my DH I will be able to make a better space, but he has the room I would use for h is "stuff". Oh well. Wouldn't mind so much but he doesn't do anything with it 99.9% of the time, just take up room.
