    I have always delighted in seeing photos of other peoples sewing room or area. perhaps, it is to get ideas to help me or just that, it is another thrill to see beloved sewing machines and more fabric. haa what ever it may be lets show each other where we labor sew lovingly over our projects. i'll go first...and please don't clean up, that would take the fun out of seeing all those scraps of fabric...I really would like to see Tims'!!

    I'll be brave - when I get home from work, I'll take a pic & post it. Well, I'll point towards the sewing machine - since, like Patrice, my whole house is my sewing room! LOL

    ok. i'll be a team player.

    Bottom Row From Left to Right: my design studio; local fabric shop (the part thats semi-pseudo organized); somewhere under there is my cutting mat;
    Top Row, L2R: state of the art sewing center (which is only that empty because i moved everything to the counter this morning while i took some photos while i was constructing the big block); $32,000 ironing table (only the best for me!) and last but not least ... my handy-dandy combination thread storage and high-tech repositionable design wall;

    Patrice and Ruth...good pictures..! Thanks for sharing..see that's not SEW bad.....makes us feel more like family!!! My business office is now in my dinning room. had to store our dinning table to fit 2 desk in.
    so I'm right in with you gals with things here and there.....my sewing room was a bedroom for one of our exchange students, as soon as he left..i wasted no time pulling all the sewing stuff out of my bedroom into his room before my husband took it for his hobby.....he is a songwriter and keyboard player..now that you gotta see, cause it's still crammed in our bedroom!!!!! whewwww..he just didn't move fast enough!! ha

    Okay - here are 3 views of my sewing room. And yes, I am a certifiable neat freak.

    After years of fighting ADD, I HAVE to put things away or I will never find them again. :lol:

    I tried to put smaller images up, but they were so dark you couldn't see them!
    Anyway.... the first one shows my stash cabinet - next to the tv. The cat's "feeding station" is in front of it. I actually have "that room" too, where it looks like one of those organization shows "BEFORE" pictures, but I try not to open the door LOL! When I put together the cabinet (thanks, IKEA!), and was starting to fill it up, the only thing on top of it was the angel....which, when the cabinet tipped a little bit, fell on my head! You should have seen the knot I had! LOL
    The next one is my sewing table, that stack of boxes to the left are the ones I filled up last week from the fabric stacked on my coffee table & sewing table! The quilt hanging behind it is the first one I designed myself.
    Oh, and yes, I do live in a mobile home.... :D

    Kathy and Sue, thanks for sharing, everybody seems to be hard at sewing, and shows your devotion to this art! You all have so much fabric!!!
    Mine is still a small stash but I'm working on it!! That Angel must of hurt like heck....my husband cannot believe how much room my sewing takes up. I have filled out those "win a sewingroom make over" so many times..are these things for real? ha..i just keep hoping!

    At the moment my sewing room is a guest room. I'll share a pic in a couple of weeks after I've put it all back. Promise. Just imagine, I'll have a very neat sewing room to take a picture of since I've cleared it out and cleaned it up. :lol:

    Thanks to all you brave souls who have already shared your work rooms. I'm very impressed. Lots of creative work going on!

    I don't have any pictures of my room yet, I'm hoping for a digital camera for my b-day. But here's my story. When we bought this house 7 years ago, there was a room framed out in the basement. Many discussions were held concerning this room, and what it would become. I never said a word. I was used to working on my dining room table, and having to pick up when company came. Then a couple years ago, our youngest son began to talk of turning it into an audio-visual room. I decided it was time to speak up. I told my DH it would be perfect for a sewing room for me. At first, nobody took me seriously, but eventually Dan realized I was serious. So, to make a long story short, he wired the room, (he's an electrician, I have more plugs than you can imagine!), dry-walled, painted it a sunny yellow, put in a laminate floor, and 2 cabinets. For Christmas last year, our kids and their families got me a 4 foot table that holds my sewing machine. My room is my sanctuary from dealing with a job I truly despise, my 79 year old mother, who thinks quilting is a waste of time, and the world in general. I tell my husband all the time how much I love my room-and him for finishing it for me. I will post pics soon.
