    Suggestions?

    I got a ping pong table to use for quilting. I put one half of it in my sewing area and put the other half away for basting (I can't wait!!)

    This is the best way I can figure using it for quilting... Do you think there's a better way? (I don't have enough room to have the sewing machines facing each other)

    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!

    I like it. I would prefer, for myself, to have the machines just as you have them now.

    How in the world did you get so lucky to get everything to match up height wise? That never works for me. GREAT JOB!

    How much space do you actually have to work with? Looks to me like there is a problem accessing the table and that you have to move a lamp to get into the space...that will get old. What does the room look like? Right now, you basically have an area that is useful when you're actually quilting but that is only part of the process. Think you might be able to do better but can't help if we don't know what you've got to work with.

    Anybody can come quilt with me anytime they want to!!! The height kind of worked out. When a friend posted that she had a table for sale, I looked up the height of a PP table, and it's 30 inches. My industrial machine is 30 inches, and my sewing table is 29 inches. I'll have to put something under the back legs of that table to bring it up to 30 inches! If the PP table was any higher, I wouldn't have bought it. I thought I would like the storage under it, but it's too much trouble to get to anything under there. I am tall and can reach the boxes on top with no problem. The only real "issue" is adjusting the air conditioner!
    That is my sewing area, I have a separate cutting area and I'm using the other half of the PP table to baste on (It's great!)
    It is in our bedroom, so we have to have room for our bed, dressers, too! That's my corner (I have my materials and the cutting table, which is a old kitchen cabinet, by the bed) and thanks to the exterior door, there isn't a whole lot more room there, although it's easy to move the tables in/out of the way temporarly.

    I haven't figured out what to do with the floor lamp. I need more light in that area!

    The only thing I'd consider is pivoting the sewing machin(s)e so that the ping pong table can be used to support the weight of your large projects when sewing and/or quilting.

    Looks very efficient. Lots of room to move your fabric around. I'd say you have it perfect! Happy sewing!

    I like your layout. Especially that the ping pong table abuts the two walls. No worry about quilt falling over the edge and causing drag.

    I love the air conditioner in your room!!!! I wish I could put up two of my machines at the same time. I don't have the extra room. My sewing room is plum full. I love your sewing room. You actually have free space!!!!

    Looks like great support for your excess fabric when you are quilting. I wouldn't change a thing
