|Two out of Three (boxes) at my door!|
I got my Magic Sliders out, and played with the room set up since I had the table in.
This was my original sewing room setup:

I went with Option C from my previous post since it involved the least amount of changes. I just moved the little file cabinet out of the way, and moved the small 4' table 90° over to the right. I put the Sweet 16 in the middle where the small 4' table was.
I didn't like the feel of this at all. The new table is shorter and wider than the 4' table that I had along the wall, and it really made the works space feel tight and closed in.
A reader had sent me a plan with everything laid along the walls of the room. While her specific plan didn't work because of some quirks with my room, I did use her plan as a base for some more options I hadn't considered. So, Thank You Michelle! ☺
I opted for a new Option D:

It's a different feel to have everything along the walls. I will have to roll my chair between my embroidery and long-arm, or else get another chair. My initial thoughts...
I love having more open floor space. Mine is a narrow room, and this makes it feel more spacious.
My cutting table is not 100% walk-around. It has a short side along the wall and a bit of a corner along a table edge. So it's a bout 75% walk-around enabled. I think that will be OK. The table does have some clearance along the wall and table edge to allow fabric to drape over if necessary.
I took down my knitting station and made that desk to be my small sewing desk with my Singer 160 Sewing Machine. The knitting station hasn't been touched in over a year, and I would rather have my Singer out and available as needed. The prior Small Sewing Desk is now a computer desk.
I like have the Sweet 16 table between the other two tables. These tables can serve as extensions to the long-arm table when needed.
I was thinking of maybe getting another smaller 4' table to use instead of the 6' table. That would give more space around the cutting table. I just don't want to spend money on furniture if not required.
I like my Design Wall where it is and am glad I didn't have to move it. I also like where the two dressers are and didn't move them either.
As soon as I get the Sweet 16 machine in place, I'll post some photos of the room.
Any thoughts so far?
