    We still have more boxes than I care to think about to unpack, but I have at least got the sewing room into some semblance of order. Since I had taken over parts of the dining room, living room, office and bedroom of the old house I actually have less space - so like all quilters and blessed with common sense :wink: I've decided to move all the hand sewing and garment sewing supplies to the upstairs spare bedroom - let 'em sleep with zippers LOL!

    The wall next to the lone bookcase is actually the design wall - all 8' x 8' of it. I'll get pictures of that later. I still have tubs of fabric to unpack as soon as I figure out where to put it all. The cutting area is on the machineless table, and I'll be able to move it and bring over the serger or other Viking as I need it. I can easily move my laptop around in this setup. DH has strips attached under the tables for power. Although the shelves got moved into the closet, it won't be long before I replace those with wire shelving.

    The wall above the Singer looks bare; when DH gets home tonight, he will be hanging a wrought iron rod across this wall for displaying quilts.

    I swear, this stuff multiplied when I wasn't looking :shock:

    I opted for an L shaped layout for the sewing area. This bookshelf is all quilting books and videos.

    This wall has the Singer Treadle with the Brother Embroidery Machine on top of it.

    I put my shelves in the closet. All the sewing patterns and machine embroidery design disks are on this bookshelf.

    Great space! I know how overwhelming it can be having to pack everything up, then unpack it into a new place. You are doing great!

    Boy, I'm glad I got those pictures when I did - you should see it now :oops: That big project I'm working on has to be at the long arm quilters tomorrow at 7 am - so I've been too busy to worry about little things like picking up as I go :shock: I've been pulling stuff out of tubs and boxes as I've needed it, and mercy can I make a mess!

    If your sewing room is neat, it means you ARE NOT sewing. You have a great sewing room...and a dear hubby! I have to stick to making small quilts cause I can't afford to send them out...maybe one day......
    thanks for sharing!

    It's a great room, and we can ALL make a mess. I have complete confidence in that.
    I went with an L shaped sewing area too. It really works for me. :D
