    Thought I should take a picture of my sewing space all nice and clean. When I bring in everything, it won't look like this anymore!!!

    My sewing table my DH built in for me.

    The one showing is a Pfaff expression. I love it. I took a Viking to the retreat. Like it too but I hate putting on the walking foot. I also have two sergers, a Janome and two older Singers. I love old machines but really don't have a place to display them all the time.

    My empty shelf is no longer empty! And there are some piles in front of the original stacks. DH is just shaking his head.

    I love how organized everything is. I've tried to keep mine neat and organized but it only lasts about 5 seconds. LOL!!
    Now when do we get to see the after pictures?

    Still don't have everything in the shelves yet. Discovered that I bought fabric that I already had in my stash. Guess I must really love it!

    I also found some things that I am sure I won't use now. So I'll start my pile for my next sell. I'm listing some things on eBay this week anyway for Debbie. Might as well get it all on there!!!

    Love your room and your storage in the closet. Can you give me some info on the shelves you used? Are they pretty strong? I'd like to add some to one of my closets. Thanks in advance.

    They are just the wire shelves that you can buy for closets. My DH installed them for me. They are adjustable so I can change them as my needs change. They hold a lot of weight!!!

    Do you do all your piecing with your pfaff expression, or do you have other maachine for that, would like a expression but was wondering if everything is done on one.

    I use my Pfaff expression for everything, including my FMQ. It is wonderful. It does some great decorative stitches too. I don't like to travel with it because I worry that it might get damaged so I travel with my Viking. But my Pfaff is my favorite.

    Your room looks great, wish mine did. Think there are people who use my room while working and they certainly don't clean after they are done. lol

    Nancy you have a wonderful sewing room, I bet all the nooks and empty spaces are filled after your adventure to Texas. I would love to see your ebay sales (Debbies too) can you tell me how to find you on ebay?

    Hi np3, I love your sewing room, especially your table that your dh made for you, looks like you have got a lot of room. I am glad that you all had a great time at the retreat, sorry that I wasn't able to get by and meet you all. But am still confinded to bed pretty much of the time. My back is still giving me a lot of trouble, hopefully it will get better soon, Glad that you all had a safe trip home.
