I love my sewing room! It is a long and narrow (18' x 9.5'), sloped-ceiling, bonus room in our home, but it is mine. My piece of the house where I can retreat. I have some pics of my room on sewforum.com from a couple of years ago. The pics have been getting attention again recently, and seeing those pictures of the room so clean and neat has motivated me to clean it up again. Come inside and I'll show you around...

I found this at JoAnn (my favorite shop!)

Last year I had reorganized the room from the initial set up. The room was getting crowded and cluttered since I had added a knitting machine station, another sewing machine, and made one wall a design wall.
The biggest change was that the cutting table was pulled out of the low corner of the room and put in the middle so that it is accessible from all four sides. There is a table-size iron pad under the cutting mat, so I have easy access to a large ironing table when needed too.
|The open dresser was once a baby dresser and changing station. It is now used for a small iron station and lots of storage. The door with the mirror is the entry door. The button wall decors came from the JoAnn store.|
A couple of bar stools are tucked under the cutting table, on either side. That way, when a friend comes over to sew, or when my daughters want to do some crafting, they have a seat available and space to work. The kids also like to bring their homework (older kids) or toys (younger kids) and set them up on the table as well.
|This dresser used to be in the kids' nursery. It is now for storage and embroidery thread.|
Our pet, Lucky, is always nearby too.
I have a knitting machine station set up in the corner. I haven't gotten past knitting that one skien of yarn yet. It is another UFO waiting patiently for me to complete.
|My work set up. Sewing, embroidery and computer all within reach. How nice!|

The entry door with the mirror is usually open, it's just closed for this photo to keep the kids out for a second.
My youngest was already waiting outside the door when I opened it. :-)
Thought I would get some pictures of the room while it is all clean before I get back to sewing and make it look worked-in again.

Thank you for coming to my sewing room! Hope you have some time to enjoy your crafting this week too.
