    Ideas in my sewing room.
    1)Design wall made out of cork board cut in strips. And I use steel pins to pin the cork board into the sheet rock.
    2)Thread Catcher~I use a clear plastic container and put all my threads in, decorative as well as practical.
    3)Design wall positioned to be seen from a distance. This is how I look at a customer's quilt to see what it calls for.
    4)Colorful Rubber floor mats, this is for my comfort. Standing by my long arm for hours can be exhausting.
    5)Pink light by my sewing machine, Ikea! $10 what a good buy.
    6)Made an Ironing board above my fabric storage, this is great if you have wheels on your sewing chair.
    7)Ruler holder~green basket holds my rulers, and patterns I need to go through.
    8)Sewing desk~free from a school. Its perfect/and the right $.

    I am drooling! I get a corner of the kitchen table IF I want to spend 20 min setting everything up and then have it scooted for homework and scooted for dinner and . . . well you get the idea. Ahh someday tho, (20yrs) when the kids are older I WILL have a sewing room!!

    enjoyed your pictures of your great sewing room. I especially liked the wall quilt of the white trumpet vine flowers. Is there a pattern available for that quilt?

    We have a 7 bedroom farm house, down to 1 teen! The only reason it looks so organized is because I have to widdle (sp) down my 2 rooms upstairs I use for sewing storage. DD moving home with 2 GD, will change my world as I know it. I have one room just for my Rolls of batting, I think there are 5 large rolls on a rack now. My DS will take the batting room.

    My sewing room is a bright room, bay window, looking out towards the front yard. I love it.

    That is The Dutch Quilter's pattern, you can google it. I posted other Hot Ribbon Quilts, these couple on that wall are my to do list. Gorgeous isn't it. Can't wait.

    I would love to go to your house, You are near The Quilted Rose, I just ordered Thread and Needles from them.
    I was in San Francisco last April, went to Tahoe for a quilt retreat. First time to CA for me.
    Yes, if you want to come, wait till fall, I'll have an empty room then. Wisconsin is beautiful in the fall.

    Love your quilt room! We all start out quilting somewhere.
    I made my first quilt on the kitchen table and now I have a large corner in the family room set up for quilting. In a spare bedroom I have all the fabric and kits stored and then my longarm in another spare room. These rooms were once occupied by my two children at one time. (now grown and moved out)
    I do like how organized your room is.

    You have a very nice setup for yourself. It's always great to make finds of neat items you can repurpose for the sewing room. I do have a question though - I've been searching high and low for a cabinet with those pullout metal wire drawers like you have shown in picture number two. Apparently there is some specific name for them - because I've searched high and low for them and have so far online only found one but its wayyyyyy overpriced. Is there some technical furniture term for them? I really want some but can't find them anywhere, not even in craft/sewing furniture stores. Help please! :-D

    These pull out wire drawers were purchased at Menards, I used them for several years in our bedroom, now I have them here and put a board on top with batting for ironing. Wish it was just a little higher, sure my DH can fix that. Check your local Home Depot... or watch Craigs list, I find so many treasures there.

    You have a very nice studio. The quilt that is on the design wall is very pretty, looking forward to seeing the finished photos of it when you post.

    I like the color of your room. Since I work with a ton of colors I like my walls neutral, then they don't clash with the fabric I am using.
