    My sewing room was my daughter's bedroom. She has been married and out of the house forever for 7 years. It is now my sewing, quilting and computer room.

    I have fabric stored also in my laundry room and two differnent handquilting hoops in other rooms of the house.

    Don't you just love how kitties like to lay on our fabric near a window! :lol:

    Thank you for sharing your sewing room and fabric storage room. You sure do have a lot of fabric. It will get used in time.

    Nice room and what a stash you have. Do the cats come standard with the sewing room? If so I want a sewing room of my own.

    I have a little Sew Tilt table I got from Nancy's Notions. It allows you to tilt your machine at several different levels. It really helps you to see what you are doing and is easier on your neck. You can do the same thing with a couple of door stops. I love it it even has a notch for my knee lift bar and the power cord etc.

    WOW very well organized. Love it all.
    I am thinking of getting an embriodery machine. How much do you use it and which one do you have??
    They have some that are not that hard to learn to use,
    but wondering if how much I used it would justify the price.
    I have the 6600 Janome quilting/sewng machine and the 110 janome serger. Use them alot. Made sewing fun

    Wow, are you able to move around in there?.....lol
    I would go bonkers in there, I have to have space.

    Could you leave the basement window ajar? So none of us has to knock or ring the bell in the middle of the night when we come to plunder........I mean "Visit"..........lol

    I have a Bernina 650. It is a stand alone embroidery machine. I don't know if they make them anymore. It uses the PES format that only allows me to do a motif of 4" or smaller. Brother held the original patent. I prefer the seperate machine so that I can have it running while I am sewing on the other machine. Most of the major companies make an embroidery machine of some kind. The machine is just the beginning. I have several thousand dollars tied up in software, a Magic Box and even downloaded software. Then there is the thread, stabilizers, different hoops etc. etc. I have used it a lot. I made several quilts with it including the one currently on my bed and my daughter's wedding quilt to name a few. It is great for personalizing gifts etc.
    I saw one for sale in Walmart just last week. I don't know what kind of designs you could purchase for it. They all come with a certain amount of built in patterns, alphabets etc.

    The sewing area is a little tight but I can use the serger or embroidery machine just by spinning my chair around.
    The room itself was originally two small bedrooms. We knocked down the wall between years ago and carved out a half bath in one corner. It works rather well. There is a chair for a guest to sit in and talk when it is not full of projects to go and someone else can use the computer while I sew. My step-son gave me the TV for Christmas several years ago. He knows I have about 5 years of Simply Quilts on tape and or DVDs. The dropleaf table the thread cabinet is setting on was my grandparents diningroom table and the little blue school desk underneath my Mother-in-law gave my daughter. Now that all of that generation are gone I like to keep reminders of them around.

    I love your sewing space. In the pic of your ironing/cutting table there is a wall hanging of a teapot. Did you make that and if so, do you know where a pattern could be found? I collect teapots and I like that teapot pattern.

    I did make it for the 25th anniversary of one of my quilt guilds. I don't remember where I got the teapot pattern. It might have been from a coloring book.

    Wow. Your basement is going to miss you. I can see you sitting down there in the night, wrapped in a quilt, rocking, rocking, musing, remembering, creating the design of your next quilt and deciding which pieces you will need to pull for it. Rocking, rocking.
    The more room I have, the more room I use. You know just where everything is in your sewing room, you have room for guest and room for you. What more do you need? I like it if you like it too.
    You do have lots of stuff. That didn't happen overnight. How many years of your likfe do you have invested?
    Happt sewing./Regards, Dorothy
