    Sewing area

    I like looking at everyone's sewing studios, so I decided to show mines. It's a small area, the kitchen is on one side and the living room on the other. It's supposed to be the dinning room, but since no one ever ate at the table, I decided to take it over. I only have about a 3 1/2 feet between my Juki and cutting table. I set up my Juki to be out all the time because I suck at FMQ. When my machine wasn't out I didn't practice till I wanted to quilt something(notice quilt on table). I put the table I usually use to baste/tie my quilts behind the Juki so the quilt wouldn't drag, it took up a lot of room. I have only one full wall, but now I can't get too it. It's usually not this neat. I just finished a swap, so now I can work on some Christmas presents. Thanks for looking.

    Looks good to me. Whatever it takes. No one eats in my dining room either. Maybe 2 or 3 times a year.

    I'm amazed at what everyone does to make a sewing area for them selves. You make do with what space you have. You have a nice handy area for sewing!!

    Thank's for sharing; I'm so right in there with you! Been racking my brain where the best area of my house is for "my" area. Sewing in basement is out; it's prone to flooding. Upstairs, I can't bring myself to take over college age kids rooms as they come home a lot. Our dining room is the logical spot too. Like being close to the landline ph., good natural lighting from windows, and can see when someone drives onto the yard. Will try to get it set up neatly and share with you too.

    It's the Arrow Sewing Cabinet Gidget Sewing Table. I bought it from Day Style Designs Online Quilt Shop about 2 years ago.(Leah Day, she has a free motion quilting blog). I didn't see it at her web site, but amazon has it. $140

    A smaller space make for a more efficient sewing area. Congrats on your fine organization of your sewing area!
