    I was inspired by another board member to post pics of my sewing space, so here it is

    This is my cutting table; it folds up and goes under the bed when I have guests

    Since it's also my guest room, the bed is my "design board"

    This is my quilting table, but it also works as a work table when I'm not quilting.

    This is the view from my quilting table and sewing desk. It's an atrium that is only open to the top. Makes a great coffee drinking space, and has great light.

    Yeah, it's really nice- the only time it's not user-friendly is the middle of the day in summer when it's unbearably hot with the sun beating down and no breeze. It's pretty much what sold us on this house.

    Wonderful. I agree the atrium is great, like a garden right there with you when you work.

    Yes ,it would be nice to have alittle paradise to escape to.
    Also agree w/ the double duty rooms, I took over the front formal living rm for my sewing rm. that no one ever sat in. I have a guest rm but ....thinking about moving all my scrap book stuff in there to give me more rm in my sewing rm.
    Very nice use of your space-enjoy!

    My sewing room is also our guest room. At Christmas and the Fourth of July, the room gets redd up so we can have guests! The rest of the time, the bed is piled with stuff - projects, repairs,
    whatever I don't want to put too far away that I might forget it!!
