    Starting a new quilt in my $45.00 sewing area

    I found the stool at a garage sale for $5.00, the treadle base and a beat up top for $20.00 and believe it or not a Featherweight for $20.00 at an estate sale. I have a good size sewing room in the basement but it's been a little to cold down there this winter. I was looking at this weird little space in my family room and decided to see it I could set something up there. I have had the stool, the base and the machine for a while. It looks like they belong there. I'm working on a Scrappy Mountain Majesties quilt and staying warm. I cut pieces downstairs a little at a time. Just proves you can have a sewing area with very little money and space.

    I think that stool might be a piano stool, meant to adjust up and down for various size players. It looks like one we used to have and might be quite valuable. It's hard to tell from the picture for sure. If you want to PM me more pictures, I might be able to help id it better.

    Lovely alcove. I'd turn the back of the treadle to face the side of the fireplace if there were room, simply because I don't like my back to the room. And are you free to go saleing with my next weekend??

    I was thinking the same thing! She might have gotten a better deal with stool than the machine!

    Great use of the space. I have two tables made of old treadle machines that I keep my machines on. I put the foot pedal on the metal foot pedal area of the table, or shelf or what ever it is, and rest my other foot next to it. Keeps my feet off the cold floor. Put a little piece of non slip shelf liner under the pedal to keep it from moving. It's like having a little footstool.

    Looks perfect! I have a very similar stool at my machine, too. It works great for rotating to reach things…just need wheels and you can really go!

    Great little corner to enjoy! I don't see the claw feet on the piano stool, but it may still be valuable... it certainly fills the bill for your little corner anyway!

    Wow!!! I'd say you did well on everything but a Featherweight for $20?!?! You really struck gold with that! Love your new sewing niche - - - I, too, have my sewing room in the lower level and it's chilly - - I bring my FW up to the living room and would love to have a perfect little spot like you've got there! Enjoy!
    Laughing is, and will always be, the best form of therapy!

    If you're too busy to laugh.....you're too busy!

    Just love your quilting "room".. You have won the designer's award for this month. Love the piano stool and saw one on auction notification that I get that had the back to it that I would have loved to get. I want to go shopping with you - lol.
