  1. Yes I have a great sewing room that is ALL MINE!! Is was an unused bedroom upstairs, and it didn’t take long for me to claim it. I have to nice windows that get the afternoon sun and my machine sits right under one of them. I LOVE IT!!

  2. Yes, I do. I commandeered what is supposed to be a formal dining room (we’ve never used it for that) and set it up as my sewing/craft room!

  3. Yes I do. We built a new house and worked a sewing room into the design. It is smaller than what i had hoped but it has beautiful views over our lush town. It is a soothing space.

  4. Yes, I have a sewing room in progress. It also seems to be the dumping ground for anything else without a designated home. All my fabric is stored in plastic storage boxes in my garage.

  5. yes, I have a sewing room. I keep my big board ironing board up in the guest room when the grands aren’t here. design wall in hallway, between the two rooms.
    it makes me get up and move around, otherwise I’d be tempted to just sit and sew for hours. not good, need to stretch.

  6. I will have a large space dedicated to my sewing once we finish the house. We are about 98% done! I also have a 9 ft farm table that I have been sewing/quilting on for the 3 yrs so I have been fortunate. I also have a small table & basket I keep near my chair for my EPP!

  7. Yes, I have a cozy place where I can make my mess and just turn around whenever I want and nobody will be disturbed

  8. Yes, itโ€™s an enclosed patio. I have space for my machine, a table for cutting and some storage cabinets.

  9. I wish! I sew/craft/create/make a mess all over the house. Kitchen table. Dining room table. Study nook. Bedroom corner. Handsewing in the lounge. (I do try to keep one table clear for eating) I tend to leave whatever I am working on set out where I started until the space is needed.

  10. When we became empty nesters, we tried to down size. That thought lasted about 14 months we then bought a bigger house converting a bedroom onto a quilting room and still with 2 guest rooms. I tell you down sizing is overrated.lol

  11. I have a dedicated space, but it’s visible to the whole house, since it occupies a special table between the living and dining rooms. Dreaming of a whole room to myself…!

  12. I use the dining room table, part of the spare bedroom, sometimes the kitchen, and I have a big storage building full of craft stuff.

  13. I am working on that right now, actually! I had a wall along one bedroom that use to be my workspace. It was never enough, so I was hauling out my new machines to the kitchen table. Well, no more. I’m converting the dining room at this time into a sewing/craft room. I’ll have a dedicated sewing and cutting table and an ironing space, too. Can’t wait to have it all ready!

  14. With 2 wild (and wildly lovable) animals in the house, the only safe place is our unfinished basement. It seconds as a laundry room and storage space for all things. My folding table is my cutting table and just about anywhere we are not storing something you will find fabric, notions, books, pictures and things hanging on walls and from the clothesline! If we ever move, I declare the master bedroom (at least) as my sewing space!

  15. I took over our son’s bedroom when he moved out. I waited a few years. At first it was wonderful. But then as I went thru the garage and found more craft items and put them in the room, it has become more and more crowded. So it’s not as nice a space as it first was, but I do have dedicated spot for fabric, notions, sewing machines, pressing and cutting stations. Now on the lookout for something to make my cutting station so it’s higher, not fun to bend over and cut for long periods of time… Thanks for the chance. We have new baby in the family. Would be fun to use new fabrics for the gift I’ll be making!

  16. When we moved house 2 years ago I made sure there were enough bedrooms so that I could use one for my hobbies, although I do hand stitching in front of the TV in the living room.

  17. I do have a dedicated space now. I retired after 43 years of pediatric nursing in April and am LOVING the freedom to sew and create whenever I want. Hooray!
    I sure would love that FQ bundle

  18. Yes, I do have a dedicated space for sewing. Initially when my daughters started flying the coop I took over a bedroom for my sewing room. Just before Christmas we cleaned out and refloored the old family room downstairs. I shifted all of my sewing room down there now-more space for me and an empty bedroom for my grandkids! Win-win!

  19. I am very blessed to have two empty bedrooms that I use as a sewing room & fabric storage/craft room for my card stamping & Cricut Maker supplies.

  20. my happy place is a front small bedroom (10X10) with a small walk-in closet with shelves on all walls and a window that lets in natural lights.

  21. Unfortunately, I live in an apt. With little space. I use the dinning room as my sew space. A little cramped but I make it work.

  22. Someday I would like to get a long arm but it wonโ€™t fit in this room! Lots of fabric that is overflowing into the hall and my bedroom! ๐Ÿ˜Š I love it.

  23. I sort of do have a dedicated sewing space but it doubles as my crafting area and desk. I have all my tools in drawers and containers nearby.

  24. Since my daughter and her kids decided we all needed to live together to cut costs I told her fine but there won’t be a living room ๐Ÿ˜‚ and sew there is no living room

  25. Yes, I do. My husband and I added an 1100 sq ft studio to our house in 2015. Although we gather at the craft table for holiday family dinners as it seats 8, my studio has all the goodies and equipment I need to be creative. I share it often as my husband knits and hope to teach my granddaughter to sew/quilt. She loves arts ‘n crafts and also makes bottle cap jewelry. One wall has 5 large windows overlooking a meadow where the deer and other wildlife frequent. It can be quiet for thinking and planning or we can crank up the music and dance if we feel like it. It is a well used space.

  26. Yes ! I am very fortunate to finally have a whole room dedicated to all things crafty. Even has a quilt layout wall ๐Ÿ’•

  27. My sewing center is all over the home. My machine and frequently used tools are in the family room. That was due to wanting to be with my family when I sewed after work. My fabric and all other items for sewing are in a bedroom taken over once son #1 left for the USCG. The plan this year is to move all sewing into that room since I am now retired.

  28. I have taken over the dining room and half of the living room! If we have guests or family over, I have to pack it all away.

    1. Our second bedroom is my sewing space. My husband made a Murphy bed and in the bottom piece when the bed is stowed, he made a cutting table that sits on two wooden legs! He is very clever. I have a design wall, he made my oversized ironing board to fit over the standard ironing board. I wish I had a room to myself but everything closes up when we have company. So Iโ€™m happy to have the space. And company doesnโ€™t stay that long, you hope!!!

  29. I have a 12×15 dedicated sewing & craving space. It houses my Horn cutting & sewing tables. I also have a pegboard to house my sewing, quilting & crafting tools.

  30. I am planning on taking over my son’s bedroom since he moved out. It my be a long tedious process, but I am amped up and ready to start changing it over. Right now I am using my dining room which has taken on a mind of it’s own. Wish me luck!

  31. We share the basement family room…half of it is my sewing space. There are windows on 2 sides; my computer, TV/VCR, an music to keep me entertained while I sew. Hubby even installed a mini fridge in the wet bar. Ahhh! could a girl ask for more?

  32. Yes! Half of my coveted sun room is for the kids and the other half is mine. That way i can watch them play while i play in my area.

  33. Yes I have a wonderful space set up I my basement. Over 75%is dedicated to sewing. I have an old Dining table set up as a cutting station. I have my sewing center set up as a U with one leg my sewing machine, bottom is my serger and embroider machine on a computer table with the keyboard drawer set up as a cutting area for paper piecing, and the last leg is the ironing board. So I can just turn around for everything! I have a semi design wall set upon one wall. I love my area!

  34. I have a very small and narrow dedicated space but at least I can set up my sewing machine, serger and 4 needle embroidery machine. I fall over the dog in here but I do get to leave my machines up and can run them all at the same time!

  35. Sadly, I don’t have a dedicated sewing space. I have to get stuff out and put it back when I’m done. I use the kitchen table. ๐Ÿ™‚
