    This is my sewing room, but I think I should have taken pics during day. My room needs more lights.

    I'm working on my room also. I need a LOT of light when sewing (must be an age thing). When we had the house built I had them wire the ceiling in front of the window for a light (already had one in center of room). I put up a 4 foot long fluorescent light right over my sewing table. And I still have a problem with dark colors.

    I have an Ott light that is clamped to top edge of my sewing table/cabinet. It has a long flexigle arm that can be quickly aimed to wherever needed. I don't think I could thread the needle without it.

    I enjoyed the pictures of your sewing room. We are currently remodeling an older home and building on additional square footage; which will include a sewing room. I can't wait.

    I have lots of lights in my room. I'll try to get some pics up here. But - all those lights make it SOOO HOT in there! I have a fan in there. (I suppose the iron is making a lot of that heat as well.) Can't turn the A/C up high enough to cool me in there or the rest of the house would be too cold!

    That's all that I have too, just a corner of the bedroom, a tight squeeze. My fabrics are in a small storage room. So I am lucky for that, and it is next to my bedroom. I always envy the people who have the nice big rooms.
