After sewing for 50 + years I finally have a sewing room. In the beginning I sewed on the kitchen table. Then I was given a card table to sew on but every time I stopped sewing for the day I had to put everything away. When I was first married I sewed in a walk in pantry of all things. After having children I sewed on the kitchen table but once they were older I moved to the basement which was only partially finished and really uncomfortable with no natural light. I am now retired and have a sewing room that makes my heart happy! Wanna see some pics?
As you can see in addition to sewing and fabric, I also store SOME of my yarn. The larger cuts of fabric are hanging in the closet on another wall. I have bolts of fabric stacked in the closet along with shelving for more fabric. Lots of room! But of course never really enough!
My Pfaff 2170 is at one end and the Janome MC 4100 and serger are at the other.
This is by far the best sewing room I have ever had and I love it! The sewing table, the cabinets under it and the cubes are all from IKEA. I also purchased two silver racks from IKEA that have hanging S hooks plus hanging baskets. In those I store my scissors, rulers etc. The sewing chair is specifically made for sewing so it can be customized to height and back support. That huge TV is not even hooked up to cable so it will be moved out as soon as I can get someone to lift it. Next I plan to find just the right fabric to make curtains or a valance.
Did I mention how much I love it? I feel very blessed to have this bright and cheerful sewing room.
