Ms MoomMist:

Wow, Denise, this is fabulous! Sure wish I could be so organized. Are you close to Pennsylvania, so I could hire you to come and help me organize LOL

It really is lovely!

xoxoxo

Thanks! Nope, I'm in Oregon. We are a tad bit far away from each other! (I secretly LOVE to organize - spreadsheets, cupboards, towels all have to face the same way, etc. - my hubby just smiles at me.)

Hello Everyone, I am a old newbie.....lol...I have been a member since 2009 but life gets in the way  and I have been missing in action. I loved catching up and seeing lots of new names.

I out grew my bedrm that I used to call my sewing heaven...soooooo I took over the formal living that we never used anyway.

What a great room - love your bright and cheery colors!

Our formal living room is the game room. Since we "never used it anyway" we bought a game table (we play a lot of Scrabble, Sticks, Jokers, etc.). We also have a very large TV in the corner with a WII system and a couple of big comfy chairs. Everyone from my gandchildren to my parents love to play games.

Welcome back.

Denise - I can't help but to stare LOVINGLY at your room!  You are masterful!  It must be such an awesome feeling to be sitting or standing at whichever station your at ... no matter where you seem to be at there's something interesting to be absorbed into.  GREAT set-up!

Thank you, Ann. I find my time in that room very comforting.

Ms MoomMist:
I'm butting in here but I got an 8 foot table that is super for cutting at Sam's club for under $50. Thye also have 6 foot tables for less. They are plastic tops and metal legs and very sturdy. Problem now is that with the Long arm machine in the Sewing Loft, I don't have room for it. I have a taller table that DH pick up at a garage sale with a ceramic top that I use for cutting. Maybe if I cleared out some of the old machines and furniture, I'd have room for a nice cutting table or I could use it to lay out the quilt for basting.

Ms Moom Mist – I just wanted to say that I agree with you on use of the tables you mentioned … I didn’t get the Sam’s club price, but we were within reason $60-70.  We got the 8 foot table and butted up the 5 foot table next to that so we have a 90 degree 5’ sewing area.  The tables are just wonderful.  AND so much less expensive than a “professional” sewing table.  I like too that we can put things underneath it – and then with the skirt it is out of the way.  A couple of the girls have the extension block things for putting under standard tables like this when we meet up as a group to get it at a nice height for them … I have a bad back so do most my cutting sitting down but the idea is great!

Ms Plant Lady … Just wanted to say in appreciation of your room how nice your “peaceful” areas are.  You give your space a visual rest which is quite wonderful – plus that comfy looking blue chair … sweet!

Envy, that is what I feel when I look at your sewing space.  So nicely decorated.  Mine just has plain white walls with occasional pic on it.  Beautiful!

Welcome back.

 

We love to play games too, so now we have our Pegs & Jokers board set in the middle of the dining room table and because it is just DH and self we just eat around it and play a game when we finish our meal or snack. We are thinking about setting up a puzzle on a big antique table that DH family had that sits in our livingroom collecting junk... it needs to be used rather than being a mess.

As for my Sewing Loft. I try to make it a plan to straighten something everytime I'm in there. Every thing was just dumped in there when DH, Step S, & D-I-L moved my Upstairs Sewing room out to the garage (now the Sewing Loft) about 10 years ago... did I say that before .. omg - I'm senile ss.

LOL

Also welcome back Plant Lady.

Have a great day.

Hello Everyone, I am a old newbie.....lol...I have been a member since 2009 but life gets in the way  and I have been missing in action. I loved catching up and seeing lots of new names.

Especially enjoyed seeing pics of members sewing rooms, one of my favorite things to do when I am not sewing.

I hunted to see if my pics were still here, couldn't find them but then I remembered I have since moved to my room so the pics wouldn't be current. I out grew my bedrm that I used to call my sewing heaven...soooooo I took over the formal living that we never used anyway.

here are a few pics.

The red hutch was 40.00, the blk cabinet 8.00, the chair free, the wicker unit free {all repainted} the kitty-pricelss.

just moved this desk to this wall so the wall is still bare.

Time to go sew....its nice to be back here, just hope I don't get lost coming back.

And you leave WHERE? LOL! I'll be right over tee hee!

Seriously though it is absolutely beautiful

xoxoxo

I love everyone's sewing spaces.  I wish I could visit each and every one of them.  It's great to get some new ideas.  Welcome to my sewing room.  My husband and son refinished the basement under the living room .  It doesn't get much natural light which can be a downer, but they installed all the newest LED lighting and it doesn't get to hot in the summer or cold in the winter.  They paneled the room and then attached the three bookcases from Ikea to one wall.  During the storms of September I had to pick up and move many of the things that were in the room for fear of flooding.  It looks really empty right now and is never this cleaned up. Some day I hope to retire and have a smaller home built with a sewing studio. For now this is wonderful!

That is an absolutely wonderful sewing room.  And the fabric!  I would never have to set foot in a fabric store again.  How well organized and uniforn in size your fabric is.  What is the secret to that?   Oh, oh, my keyboard is wet from the drool.  LOL ....Ginny
