    I'm getting so jealous of these lovely sewinig rooms. Just for fun, I thought I'd show ya'll what I'm working with in my dining room. I'm constantly moving piles. I have fabric in several closets, but this is my day-to-day work space. Enjoy...anybody else have a setup like this???

    Where I sew and have company for dinner. We just move the sewing stuff.

    yeah that is why I posted pics before I started to sew in my new room. I will destroy it and no one will ever see it again.

    Mine used to look like that, only I had to clean it up every Tuesday cause we have a small group Bible Study that meets here on Tuesdays, so I had to pick up and stash everything between the china hutch and aquarium.

    well and there is no way I'm posting any pictures.

    I sewed in my dining room for almost 2 years. I took the upstairs "bonus" room when I got rid of the kids play area. When I cannot seem to get "into" a project, I clean and organize. :lol:

    before my sewing room, I had to work on the dining room table too. I hated having to always set up and then put everything away whenever we were entertaining.
    But sometimes, this might be the only room we have and we certainly use it to it's best capacity and produce some GORGEOUS quilts and projects!!!

    This is your happy space so enjoy every ounce of it!!!!!!!!! BTW I love the colours of fabrics you have on your cabinet! Very yummy looking :)

    I sew in my dining room ---actually it's my sewing room---we eat in the kitchen. I try to keep my sewing room half-way decent, but it's not the tidiest place. One of my 'crafty' friends has stuff all over the place and she's as happy as a clam sitting in the middle of it.

    To each his own---are you happy there?---if you are then it's perfect.

    I used to have a lovely messy corner just like that, however house is getting tidied up due to the wedding very soon, so I have had to get a piece of furniture to store everything away and make things look better, thats now in the top bedroom. But heck I still have to sew so when I start sewing the living room becomes a total mess now, so can't really win.

    My sewing space is sooo bad that my friend had to drag her daughter over to actually "see" where I was doing my sewing...she won't let her DH see it though :roll:

    You need to keep it lots more messy so that you can have plenty of reasons to "take over" an extra bedroom...or heck, just start sleeping on the couch and take over your own bedroom! :lol:

    It's about comfort and necessity. I'm glad you shared your space. Makes it that much more convenient to multi-task! HA HA

    Little did I know when I had my three kids that I subconsciously planned to take over their bedroom spaces as soon as I could. :lol: Just as fast as they left, I decided to take up quilting. Now no matter where we live, all I ask for is a quilting space.

    I think your diniing room is pretty! You are nicely organized and clean in there, it isn't a mess to me. What are ya working on?

    I have a sewing room, but the closets in both of the other spare rooms and the little dressers are full of my sewing/crocheting supples too. Plus I had to get rid of a twin beds set to set up my quilting table. So, I can relate to your dining room being like that but in other rooms of the house. LOL!

    It's great to know I'm not along. My sewing area is my dining room and everyone has learned to CAREFULLY move the piles of fabric when you need some space.

    that's not so bad. you just don't know how to organize. hehehe.

    when you get company, throw everything into laundry baskets that you keep empty for just that purpose. hide all the baskets in your own room until they go away! then very carefully, put everything back where it belongs. silly girl! :roll:

    Mine is set up in the dining room too but, fortunately, I have a sewing table there so I don't have to move everything when company comes.
