    So lucky to have two. Started with one and then converted gameroom to quilting room. Gave pool table to daughter as DH no longer used it and took over the game room. Both rooms are upstairs. We are empty nesters and no need for rooms to sit there doing nothing!!! Now they are productive. Quilt on frame is king size for our bedroom. Been in the making for 2-1/2 years, off and on.

    That is a great sewing room. I told my husband this sewing space is to die for. If I had that I would never come out.

    I do spent a lot of time in those rooms - typically the whole weekend and what hours I can steal during the week. I still work full-time, though out of a home office. I do sneak away during the day on occasion and sew when I should be working. The temptation is sometimes overwhelming.

    I am SOOO jealous! Not only two rooms but two large rooms! We have very limited space and my "quilting rooom" is a mess. Wouldn't dare post any pictures. But I'm making progress on my stash.

    I am totally jealous, I want a big sewing room all to myself. I use the guest bedroom right now and it had a full sized bed in the middle of the room that gets in the way alot.

    I am thinking it needs to go, the frame can just be put into storage. The matress is shot anyway and needs to be replace.

    I would get rid of the bed and get an air mattress with a base for the times you have a guest. We have a guest room which gets used approx. 10 days a year at max. My sewing room is actually another bedroom and the quilting room was the gameroom. Our home is larger than we need since it is only the 2 of us; however, the sewing rooms are important to me and I do not wish to lose them so we stay here. My husband knows that if we downsize, we must make room for my sewing equipment.

    I'm designing my dream craft room and would like any information you can give as to cabinetry, furnishings, dimensions to consider, etc. Still a long way in the future, but I take forever to figure out what I want, so that's OK.

    Need to figure out hubby's as well, leatherwork, photography and model railroad layout.

    Think we need to win the lottery...oh yeah have to play the lottery to do that don't you! LOL
