    It's not as nice and beautiful as some of the rooms i've seen on here but it's new for me :) My husband and I moved into a 2 bedroom apartment and now I have one WHOLE room just for my quilting stuff! I just re organized everything so now I'm in the mood to get in there and sew! I'm still a newbie so I don't have a lot...yet haha. Thanks for looking!

    You will soon be sewing up a storm and can leave in mid stitch shut the door and pick that stitch up later and no one will be the wiser unless one of those furry assistants meow progress reports. Looks nice and efficient, a verified, guaranteeeeeed quilt room!

    Nice sewing room.

    My youngest daughter just left (June 1st 2011) for college (summer program) so I am moving my bins of fabric and cutting table into her old room. I have about 1/3 of the fabric in there, but it is slow going since I am refolding and sorting the fabric by color groups.

    Nice bright room, looks just right. Is that a new sewing machine as well in the first picture. The machine in the pic of your old room has a nice wide throat. May I as what it is. Thanks for sharing.

    Yup the old machine belonged to my step-mom it's an old Necchi machine (not sure what year). She let me borrow it when I first wanted to start quilting...but I had to give it back to her :( She bought me the new machine (a little Janome) for x-mas...but it's a bit basic for what I want to do..I don't think she knew how much I was into quilting! Haha. I'm planning on getting a new one soon hopefully!

    Having a sewing room all to yourself is so nice. Maybe you can find a larger machine soon. Have you considered looking at vintage machines? People get some great finds at thrift stores and estate sales.
