    Sewing rooms are always better than living rooms!

    It looks like you do a lot of LIVING in that room, so it's very fitting that you have taken it over. Enjoy it.

    I've wondered that too - how does a "straight" stitch machine work as a "longarm".

    PS If I didn't have to share the house with my husband, my living room would probably look like that too!

    I'd like to know what type of machine that is also;as I have a Hintreburg Frame and a reg. machine doesn't give me enough "space"to really quilt on it likr I thought.

    My machine is the Janome 1600p with the 9.5 throat. Someday I will have a larger one. But this machine does what I want it to for now.

    Hey, your quilting is more important than having a living room. You can build on a living room some other time. Love your little quilting buddy. He's adorable.

    Well it rides the carriage along the tracks. Just think the reverse of free motion quilting under your sit down machine. ( you would normally move the quilt,but with this set up ya move the machine.) Some of these other ladies might be able to explain it bettter. I drewl ova the real long arms! I think they concider mine a short arm??

    Does the carriage move side to side or does it allow you to go back and forth too? Does it move in more than two directions?

    Yes the carriage moves side to side and front to back allowing for smooth curves, circles, or straight lines.

    Very nice quilting space! I noticed in picture three you had a flat ironing surface. Did you make it and will you give me some information on what you used for it? I'm using one that is too small and would like to make a bigger one.

    That was Iron on one side and cut on the other side that I purchased at Walmart. I covered it with a heat resitant fabric. It's perfect size.

    From Sew Vac Direct, ask for Steve, And ask him to help with the price. He helped me alot, and he is a wonderful guy to deal with. I don't have a dealer close enough for me, so this worked well. I got the Janome 1600p (not the DB/DBX I heard they have round shank needle that can cause threading issues.) I also got the Gracie Sturdy Lite and then Upgraded to the new carriage which I know they sell too. I hope when I move to find a dealer for the support and maint.

    great room you have there! Looks like you're in heaven. I am in the process of redoing my sewing room too. I hope to post pix when I am finished. I love how you use different furniture. So do I!!! I love your hutch. I am a hutch addict. I use an entertainment center for my fabrics too. Bolts on end sit perfectly in a T.V. opening...did you all know that? Winewoman is working on her's too. Her's will be beutiful and all white.

    Thanks for posting your "fun space" to quilt!!!! :thumbup: AEWSOME :roll: :thumbup: :shock: :-D

    Thank you AmyS. That's what I'm using now and want to make my ironing space bigger by my machine. I'm afraid the steam from the iron is going to ruin my cabinet.

    my husband got a piece of plywood, stapled batting,and a piece of musulyn to it. you can use bolts to hold to reaguler Iron board. the plywood can be 1/2 inch thick 45 to 60 long and 24 to 36 wide. this was on make it yourself quilt ironing board, I don't have a sewing room so I did not screw mine on, but it would be more stable to bolt on, mine works great.
