    A year on....

    Last year my husband very kindly converted our small room into a sewing room..... It is a really small room so we ripped everything and after a visit to ikea set out kitting it out.....we needed a bed settee so that if guests come we can use it as a bedroom.......which we have done a number of times. It is great. We didn't fix the unit top to the base cupboards so when guests come the top goes up against a wall....the units all budge together and the bed gets pulled out......and it still looks tidy.
    I have had it for a year now and it is a wonderful room. It is really easy to keep tidy which I try to do after every project....as I said it is a tiny space but I love it
    I only have my Janome out at the moment but I can fit either my embroidery machine or overlocker on the unit too....so as much space as I need.

    Because it is such a small space (10"x 9"approx) it has to stay tidy otherwise it becomes a pit....but good storage made all the difference.....Good old Ikea.
    Before I stored all my fabric in large storage boxes which was fine but if I wanted some fabrics five boxes down it was a major lifting exercise....using the folding method suggested by the board has transformed how I do a project...I can look through my stash easily and quickly .....does that mean I don't buy so much....Heck no...quilters have a fabric addiction.....just have to have that fat quater!

    Great sewing room. I would have left the bed out and made room for a cutting table.
    Thats what they make Motels for. LOL

    Wow, amazing use of a small space. Look at how much storage you've managed to get in there. My room is slightly bigger than yours and there's no way I could fit a bed in there!
