My space is 14x20.

 

Elaine, beautiful studio!!  And neat doesn't begin to describe it.  You could litterally live in this space with the addition of a refrigerator and lots of chocolate.  LOL

You know me so well, Helly!! Actually the pictures were taken last year when I had just done some reorganizing. That's why it looked so neat. Since then I have reorganized again, but haven't taken pictures yet. Under the sewing table I have done some changes to optimize the storage space, and it looks better, too. But the basic concept is the same. Right now the place isn't too bad, but I have been doing some quilting so it's not so neat.  Thanks for all the good comments. I love my space. And I spend a lot of time here, reading and watching TV, and of course, quilting.

blmjcl:

I clean sewing room is the sign of a person with serious OCD or one who really doesn't quilt!  It is your world so it just has to work for you!

I disagree...I quilt everyday and my studio is fairly clean...I can't work in a messy space..and that is just me

Elaine, gorgeous studio and very homey-comfy looking. But where is the bowl of munchies??? I know none of us can quilt unless we ( I ) have a bowl of candy next to the machine LOL

Helly, I can't work in a messy space either, that is why I spend about as much time cleaning as I do quilting. When I start a new project I have to clean first. I am the same way with cooking. If the kitchen is messy I have to clean it up before I can cook a meal.

Gagoo, I have my stash, but I try not to get in to it often. I am on weightwatchers and try to limit my munchies as much as possible. But believe me, I am tempted all too often.

Elaine...I wouldn't say I spend as much time cleaning as quilting but it does have to be tidy....too funny about the kitchen as I am the same way too...I can leave a mess and walk away but when I have to cook a meal it has to be tidy before I start...I guess I'm not alone with my ideas ;o)

Too funny! We do tend to salivate at others, huh? My keyboard is always wet!

Elaine~Your sewing room is great! I have two rooms but mine is never neat. Too much stuff! But it works for me Next life I will go to neat school first instead of Clown College.

Beautiful studio, Elaine! I'm with you and Helly, I can't work when there's lots of clutter around, either. It stresses me out to no end! On the other hand, I have a friend who can't work in my space because there is no clutter - at least most of the time there isn't.

You really wouldn't want to see my space.  Everything is crammed into approximately an 8 x 6 corner of the family room.  But it works.   Of course my midarm and 12ft frame is in another room altogether...LOL>

I have to say my weakness is anything salty crunchy, not sweet, and my munchies container is kept in a drawer next to the machine - easy to access while sewing, but hidden from view so that DH believes my fabric stash alone keeps me fulfilled in that room.

That's funny, Nancy! I use to have one of those drawers at school!
