Sewing Room - Finished!


My sewing room has been almost finished for a while, but it is only recently that all the finishing touches like painting, organizing supplies, etc. have been completed.  Here it is, small but packed!

View from the stairs:



The industrial serger that we have had for over 30 years.  This machine is sturdy!  It can serge any number of fabric layers easily, which is why we haven't replaced it.


I love peg boards, so I had a small one put in for the scissors and square rulers.  On the left is the magnetic bulletin board.


Wall shelving that holds my favorite quilt books, supplies, and sound system:


Since I'm involved in many bees/swaps, every month I write the name of each bee on a post-it.  The little post-its are individual blocks, and the larger ones are for the 3X6 quilting bee.  When I'm done with the block and it's packaged to go, I remove the post-it.  I love it when all the post-its are gone - it means that I finished the blocks for the month.  Now, if only I can stop signing up for new ones ...


My ironing table, which used to be one of my dad's work tables. It's not in the best condition, but has a strip of outlets in the back and is just the right size to hold the TV that I got for Christmas.


The smaller design board:


The pegboard that contains the majority of my tools and threads:


My two favorite sewing machines:


My scrap containers:


The shelf that contains my craft magazines and dyeing supplies.  It's also great for hanging smaller quilts:



The fabric closet that contains my current fabrics.  The shelves are 3 feet wide and 2 feet deep and fabrics are sorted in two rows on each shelf.  The containers have fabrics that are sorted by color and/or type and are 1/2 yards or less.


I love this space and try to spend as much time as I can in it.

    1. It took a while but once I figured out the best organization for my room, cleaning up is a breeze. The room normally looks like a disaster when I'm sewing though. ;)

    1. Those white bins are perfect for fat quarters and other small pieces of fabric. They're from IKEA and come in different sizes.
