I have a friend who has no space on any flat surface in her house. So she is sewing on a portable table in front of a recliner. Seems awkward to me.

Had a small bedroom at one time and it had a walk in closet(small), Used it as a sewing spot for the machine.

Years ago I worked the overnight shift at a call center. After everyone else left I set up my sewing machine in my cube to work between calls. I got very few calls so I could get a lot done. I brought one of the really small irons to iron down the seams.

Sewing in the master bathroom? I'm thinking bare feet and pins, cords you might trip over in the dark?

This wonderful lady had her machine set up on the beach in Jamaica.

Jamaica. On the beach.

I honestly can't think of a better sewing room.

We spend months in our 5th wheel camper with a large walk-thru bathroom next to the bedroom. Last week, I laid out my quilt blocks on the bed in the order I wanted to sew them. I set up my sewing machine in the bathroom so that I could reach the blocks I need to sew next. I worked great for that short while. I usually sew in the livingroom.

That's where I sew as well -- the only dining room furniture in there is a hutch I'm not willing to part with. Haven't done any quilting and am very new to this piece of the sewing picture, but am anxious to get started. Hoping I can set up all the stations I've been learning about (cutting, pressing, sewing, etc.).

Not really anywhere but the dining room table before I got a sewing room. I still use the glass topped dining table to pin my sandwiches together.

I stayed over night in a motel for business and brought my machine for after business hours sewing.
