My Sewing Room

Today I thought I would share with you some photos of my sewing room. When I first started sewing, I had a shelf in the linen closet for my stuff. When we moved, I got a shelf and a drawer and I sewed in the family room. After some remodeling, I got some cupboards in the family room and part of a walk in closet. At our next house, I got a whole room! It was only 6 by 8 feet, but it was all mine! Now I am blessed to have a huge finished room in our basement.
I will walk you around the room from right to left. I use this old CD tower to store some precuts. The vintage tool cabinet belonged to my dad. My toy Jeep collection is on top.

Next is Harry Bell Avante, my long arm. My toy sewing machine collection is above the cabinets.

My design wall! It’s a decent size, but they never seem to be big enough.

I love my vintage hoosier with side cabinets! I store more precuts, long arm threads, and miscellaneous sewing stuff inside. I also collect vintage enamelware and use it to store all kinds of things.

Here is my sitting area that is really only used by my dog!

The door you see here goes to a walk in closet for games and such. The basket system for my stash is from a Ikea.

My Juki is new, but I’m falling more in love with it every day. I bough this steel case desk at Good Will and hubby cut a hole in the top to set a machine in.

Here is my desk and embroidery area.

And now we are back to the beginning.

But wait, there’s more! There is a support post in the center of the room. I created an island around it with two vintage tables, an ironing table, and my cutting table, built from Ikea units and a door.

I love my Accuquilt Studio Cutter. I’ve had it for five years and it might be my favorite thing in this room!

My ironing table was made from a vintage lab table that me dad gave me.

I have a whole herd of vintage machines and use many of them on a rotating basis. Here is one of my Singer 301s.

I hope you enjoyed this little tour! It is most definitely my happy place.
Have a great day!
