We're selling our house & moving to Saudi Arabia in the next couple of months.

Hubby has an incredible 30x30 workshop & I have an awesome sewing room that should have been 2 bedrooms, but we had it built as one room.

I am part of a group of women that have been friends & retreating buddies for years. We take turns retreating in each others' homes so I wanted/needed a room that could accommodate 6-7 women sewing on their machines.

I also have a very large stash that I wanted to be able to see, touch & easily access. I had a mid arm machine with a 12 ft table that I recently sold.

We will build another house when we come back. I won't replace the quilter, but I still want a sewing room close to this size.

Thanks for looking, understand that my room is not really this neat, I just moved things from one end to the other when I took the pictures so that it looks neat!

Quilter, design wall, modified dresser/cutting table

serger, one sewing machine, scrap storage, pre-cut storage

East end of the room

With ironing board & sewing tables moved to one side

Tables moved to the other side

scrap & pre-cut storage

bookcase/bolt storage on west side

I have 4 of these lights spaced across the room

Beautiful! Sad day to give that up. It actually looks bigger than some LQS's I've been in!
Good luck in Saudi Arabia! Hope all goes well.

How on earth are you going to leave all that? I have a feeling that there are quilters in Saudi you could meet up with, especially as it's too hot to do anything outside for most of the time.

What will you do with everything whilst you are away - and how long are you going to be gone, in other words, do you need a house sitter???

So are you storing or moving or selling your stash?
Because wow that would take a lot to replace.
Great sewing studio.
