    What a great work space you've created. It looks like you've utilized storage space very efficiently. I really love your valance - very cute! Did you hem all of your scraps before tying them up there?

    Yes, it's a hoosier. We had in our kitchen when we were first married and then when we moved here, it was in the garage for awhile. I brought it in and painted and stenciled for my room. I just cleaned the room, it's not always this orderly. I found a picture on line of valances done with strips of fabric. I did not hem them. I just cut them and knoted them over the rods. The closet in this room has shelves and is crammed full of stuff. I need to clean it out. I spend a lot of time here. Thanks for the nice comments.

    What a neat and orderly room. Love that Hoosier. What a great idea for it. I always wanted one, but had no place in the kitchen. Never thought of the sewing room.

    I bought the mat. It's a June Tailor Cushioned Quilter's Square and Blocker. I've had it for a long time. I don't remember where I got it. I would guess JoAnn's.

    Valance is adorable. Nice room. Always wanted a Hoosier but hubby didnt. I think they are the neatest things with the built in's.

    I have cut fabric just to see how it works. I haven't made anything with fabric yet. It would be great for applique.

    Congratulations! This is a wonderful sewing & craft room! Last fall is stole my sons bedroom when he went off to college 1000 miles from home, now he's home for the summer and I am feeling so displaced! I want my space back - LOL!

    Both of my kids are married and on there own. We kept one room as a spare room and I got the other. Before that I was in the laundry room with very little room. My husband built the desk on two walls and that really gave me room.
