    Does your sewing look like this? I like little cutesy things so my room is VERY cluttered but I can find things in it (sometimes).

    Wow! You have been doing some serious work. I see projects everywhere, and beautiful fabrics to play with.

    Your sewing room looks great! You don't want to see pictures of mine, I love lots of clutter also, but like you I can find things but when I straighten up my sewing room I'm totally lost! LOL

    To me as long as you can find what you are looking for when you need it - that's great. It never fails, as soon as I get my sewing room cleaned and organized, I can't find anything. I remember exactly where it was before. Your room looks comfortable and a good place to work.

    I'm with you...I'd be embarrassed for anyone to see mine but am in the process of trying to get organized....I don't have nice matching furniture like I see in photos here....my two-room studio uses cast offs from the rest of the house....maybe that's part of the problem.

    I don't know how you do it!! I have too much "fabric dust" and lint in my room. I would have to spend too much time cleaning the dust from everything!! :?:

    Wow, what a great sewing /craft room. It brings tears to my eyes. When I moved to Fl. 3 yrs ago, I had to give up my great sewing rooms, yes , I had two bedrooms, shelves floor to ceiling and wall to wall. I sold and gave away almost everything but my emb machines , serger and two other machines. Now , Im trying to create a stash again. You dont know how much "stuff" means to you until you give it up.
    Ill never have such a great stash again , it took me years to aquire it but thats ok. Living in paradise does have its rewards.
    I do miss all my sewing friends tho and havent found any new ones so far.
    Have a great day.

    I think you have everything that you like in there, and don't have to worry about anyone getting into it. LOL I love the color of your walls. I share a room with a 22 yr old GS who only uses it for his dirty clothes hamper. I can go in anytime, but it works for us...oh I forgot to mention it use to be his sisters room and it is bright tourquiosis(?)

    You say its clutter, but it sure looks like an organized clutter-much creativity here for sure! Love it!

    Jo Mama my quilt studio could be a clone of yours. It has mismatched furniture....fabric wherever it will fit in bookshelves......my space. I do go through every once in awhile to straighten up....but who am I kidding mostly it looks just like yours! My 10 year old grandson told me "do you know the thing I like best about your quilt studio....it's so messy but you still know where everything is!!" That's understanding from the mouth of a babe!

    I just sold mine, what are you afraid of? It's a great machine! Do you do FMQ or use the QBOT or the Quilt Sew Clever?

    Thanks to everyone for the nice comments. The bulk of my stash is in big plastic bins in the garage. The nicest stuff I keep in my s. room. I have stuff crammed under the sewing table, under thequilt frame, on the frame shelves, under the sewing table - in baskets, cute boxes, etc. My husband goes nuts when he comes in the room. Also collect pincushions and old syrup pourers that I keep beads in. Gooby gobs of stuff to dust. ACHOO :mrgreen:

    I am not the one mentioned on Oprah - did she have a quilter on her program?

    I don't have the Q-Bot - too expensive but I am always unsure if I loaded everything correctly and if my machine acts up I go in a panic. The FMQ doesn't bother me if I use simple patterns - it's just all the other things you have to do. I need an attitue change.

    Pink is a good color for a sewing room huh? The WHOLE house is pink - even the garage. Somehow it works and my DH and I were too lazy to paint when we bought the house.
