    We should start a thread just for sewing rooms. I love to look at the photos of other peoples rooms. Perhaps someone knows how to keep this post at the top. Here is my new sewing room. I share it with the guest room. I have a closet for storage but I am still working on that area.

    You're very organized, and it's such a pretty room. My sewing room is a disaster area.

    Looks like a very nice room to sew in!!!

    Here are a few pics of my "sewing room" which, by the way, is the family room and computer room. Since these pictures were taken, the cabinets have been completely filled and blinds have been added to the window as well as a Daylight lamp.

    Ummmmmm I am really good at collecting?? Hi, my name is Gayle and I am a fabriholic. I got the collecting down pretty good before I learned to quilt and have just perfected it. I feel a deep down need to add to it monthly (sometimes weekly, a little here, a little there)
    Not everyone has a stash like this, some have much more!!! Among my quilting friends here in my town I have the largest collection. They know where to come if they are looking for something, especially if they need cool colors, especially if they need purples, or greens.

    Well I aspire to become that good at collecting someday! I have one Rubbermaid bin that holds my current collection. I see fabric I like all the time, I just can never decide how much you buy of fabric that you like, but don't have a project in mind for. One yard? Two? Less? :)

    Well,..... I like to buy stuff on sale. Fortunately I am in an area where I have a lot of Choices of Quilt shops carrying great quality fabrics. I do occasionally buy stuff not on sale if it calls my name. I will usually get a yard sometimes a yard and a half. If it is on sale, however, if it a color I like and I know will go with others in my stash, I will buy a yard min, many times 3 yards and if it is a great sale.....6 yards to the rest of the bolt. I have a bunch, about 4 large Rubbermaid totes as well as the upper left cabinet is all over 5 yards. Many pieces are 10 yards cause they were good quality fabrics that I got for $3 or under a yard.
    If it's something that I don't like and I need for a project I will only buy what's needed or a fat quarter. Mostly I buy at least a 1/2 yard.
