    New Sewing Room

    I'm posting these photos because I promised my BFF (rebeljane on QB) as she helped wrap a lot of the fabric that is on boards. There is still a lot to go.

    AS the photos posted:- 1. Moving In 2. Had to buy another white cupboard 3 & 4 Some of rebeljanes work 5. Still moving in. 6. Horn Sewing Table 7. Janome Sewing table. Also I bought two work tables which can be set at 3 different heights. They can be hooked to each other and when I get a third one they will make a brilliant pinning table. They can also be folded flat for storage. 8. Where I will use my Accuquilt. Both draws hold dies. In the last photo you can see my two bags with rolls of batting on top of the white cupboard.
    As I said there's still a long way to go. Will put up more photos when the actual sewing area is finished.

    Looks great. I'm envious. I would love a separate sewing room. Happy sewing.

    Now she can go back to sleeping in her bedroom instead of sleeping in her sewing room lol. It will look great when she has finished it. She is so thoughtful she has a sofa for friends to sit on and also a coffee making area.

    Thank you for all your kind words. I must admit I refer to it as my happy place and I feel it when I walk through the door.

    I got it in Aldi. It is actually a work table meant for a man workshop. I bought 2 of them and intend to buy another next time they have them out. It is just the right size for my biggest cutting mat. They can be hooked together - attachments on each corner. I love them because three together will make an awesome pinning table but the height can also be adjusted. Three different heights.

    I bought it from Deals Direct. Do you get them on line in Canada? They are made of wood, but I have to say they wouldn't be as solid as my pantry cupboard. But they cost a third of the price. I now have two of them. You can fit a lot of fabric in one.Lol.

    It's so cool that the two of you worked together on organizing this space. I love the cabinet and the adjustable table.
