    OK CoventryUK - I think you DO win! Love your workroom, though! Nobody in their right mind starts thinking about Christmas in August! I have a fun packed week ahead trying to do too much in such a short space of time! You will get finished I am sure!

    One; I am to embarassed about my sewing room. Two; I have to many UFO's laying around. Three; I am in the throws of cleaning it and just moving stuff from one side to the other. Four; I think I could be a closet hoarder. Five; My sewing spell has taken a hiatus, can not seem to get interested in it right now.

    I have been reading this thread for awhile and I finally took the time to take pictures of my sewing room. I have been blessed to have a separate sewing room in the last 5 houses I have lived in.

    Judith, your space looks great and nice and creative. My room is clean about once a month and then is trashed, so to speak. Just can't do good works without making a mess and then cleaning it up again.

    Sewing table

    [QUOTE=ube quilting;5716442]I love all the views and ideas posted about our sewing areas, studios and kitchen tables but really now
    my question to everyone is.....

    are you brave enough to post a pic' of what your sewing space looks like when you are actually sewing in it?

    So many of these rooms are so picture perfect. I want to see how you actually use your space. So much more fun than 'all put away'.

    here's mine: a room in working order!

    Hi. I saw that your Bernina machine is flushed with the sewing table. May I know what brand/make of sewing table do you use? I would like to get one for myself. Please give me your views on the table.

    Thank you and God Bless

    I have a small sewing room I share with three grown cats, everything has to be put up before I leave the room. They would lay on stuff and get hair all over it. I use glass top dining table to iron on, quilt on and sandwich my quilts on. I keep some things out in there but clean up and put away when each quilt is finished. I then start all over again.

    Can't find mine. It's buried under fabric, thread, bobbins, etc. It seems I'm good at taking things out but not at putting them back!

    Mine really needs help, hopefully this spring I can reorganize. I have a mom's sewing machine table in the basement ready to be put to use but I love having my machine on a rolling table as I can take it to the living room to sew and utilize my huge counter for cutting and ironing. I have a large stash in 3 huge totes and several smaller totes that I acquired after my mom passed and than another 2 huge ones that I had. I had 6 sewing machines, gave mom's best Janome to my sister, gave one to the local girl scouts for teaching, sold 2 very cheap to people who really needed them and I kept my Bernina Activa 240 and a Janome HF107 (11 pound) for taking to classes. I dropped out of sewing after my mom died as it was something we loved to do together and too sad for me at the time but now am ready to jump back in. I sewed 3 table runners and a few gifts for Christmas, have a quilt to bind and one to put together.

    Gee, my sewing room doesn't look as neat and organized as these on a good day! I am one of those that usually has several things going at once. I do take time to clean up when I finish a project. After a while the clutter gets to me. I'd take a photo but my camera is umm... charging, yeah, that's it, and I can't get get to it right now...

    I hope it works, I've never posted a pic before, as my only camera is my iPhone, and I'm using it as my laptop right now. This is a recent but outdated pic, as I've moved into a rental house. Things there aren't really arranged yet. This pic wasn't quite the unvarnished truth, either, since I tidied somewhat for the appraiser.

    I applaud all you brave souls....but in answer to the original question...."He** NO!!!" My embarrassment would know no end...lol.....but I loved looking at all these photos. Real people in real life trumps picture perfect every time. Thank each of you for sharing. I mean it....

    I think you are a genius organizer to be able to get a gallon into a pint.
