    I have a dedicated corner, but since we just moved in we haven’t quite figured out where my stash is going to fit!

    I have a dedicated studio for my puppet making and other art and craft endeavors. A corner of the studio is dedicated to sewing- desk with the sewing machine and notions, plus a shelving system full of fabric.

    I sew on the dining room table. Its not my dedicated space but I never move my machine so….. I do have a room to stash my fabric and patterns but other than that its more of a catch all room than anything. Would LOVE to win this machine!

    Amazing! I sew in my garage – my husband and I share the space, the back is a workroom for him with all of his power tools, and the front area has my sewing and art space. It’s a little crazy, but I love it – I feel very lucky!

    Good luck to all! <3 Alex

    I sew at my dining room table…..I really need to set up a sewing area…maybe in my bedroom…just to have the luxury to always be ready to sew.

    I am lucky enough to have a studio where I can keep my machines out and ready to use. I recently started teaching a 10 year neighbor how to sew and having an extra machine for her would be heaven!

    In my bedroom due to lack of space (joys of living in a small condo!). Sewing machine sits on my desk, but everything else is done on the floor. Not ideal, but it works.

    I sew at school in our sewing lab or i whip out my sewing machine in my room at residence in my college. The entire room soon becomes a a crazy mess of fabric and thread scattered everywhere.

    I live in an open-floor plan loft. So every time I want to sew, I need to drag out my machine, ironing board, etc. It’s a drag, but in the scheme of things that are not ideal, this is totally livable.

    I sew because I want my clothing to fit. I sew because cute skirts make me feel happy and I sew because my friends need hemmed pants. I wish I had a dedicated room but our home is two large rooms plus a kitchen/bed/bath so I take over the dining room table. Old homes in Pittsburgh don’t have closets so I’ve taken over ever nook and stuffed every chest with fabric (yarn, old table cloths, vintage buttons, etc.). Some day I dream of having a place to keep my machine out and my fabric organized by color…but until then, the table will do just fine. Thank you for such a cool give away!

    I have a “studio” in the guest bedroom but it feels so far away from all the household action that I often set up my machine and cutting mat on the dining room table. I almost always do hand sewing on the sofa in front of the TV. Of course my hubby and teenaged son are always griping about the sewing/craft tools and projects all over the house… I prefer to look at the bright side and remind them that they are priviledged to be surrounded by creativity – and quick access to supplies for the mending of torn pants and lost buttons! hahaha!

    I have a crafts and sewing room that doubles as a guest room when I put down the murphy bed in the wall. I would love a new sewing machine.

    I have a sewing space in the foyer of our apartment. On one side of the hallway is my drafting table where I make patterns, cut and pin, etc. On the other side of the hallway is my sewing desk.

    I am slowly transitioning a spare bedroom into a sewing room. My poor kitchen suffered through tulle, net, and all of the bits and pieces that go into making ballet costumes. I can’t wait until my kitchen table is just that – a kitchen table!

    I do have my own studio room. I just cleared it all out, re-painted it and am now trying to put everything back in a logical and organized fashion. It’s amazing how much stuff piles up!

    After years of sewing on the kitchen table, I finally broke down and leased a small office space. It’s been instrumental in helping me in the transition between home-sewer and professional. I share the space with a couple other women-owned businesses. So not only do I have a space that keeps me organized and focused, but I have a small community to help learn from! And it’s only two blocks away from my house, so no excuses about how hard it is to get over there.

    I have a sewing nook in the oddly shaped hallway between the bathroom and the bedroom. There is a linen closet for my fabric in the hall/sewing nook. It is a small space, so I lay out patterns and cut fabric on the kitchen table and all the pressing is done in the bedroom.

    Mostly Yes. We have an extra room, like a den, that we’ve named “the drawing room.” My retro drafting table is where the hand-me-down sewing machine lives. But all the fabric and notions are tucked away in closets and other rooms.

    I have a dedicated sewing room that’s a mess! So lately I’ve been sewing on the kitchen table. I hope to clean soon.

    I transformed my one bedroom into my dedicated sewing area that I affectionately call my sewing cave. A year ago it received a fresh coat of paint, shelves for books and lateral three drawer file cabinets for pattern storage. I love this room and spend hours of my time here creating designs I love to wear.

    No dedicated sewing space for me, but it would be nice to have a room where I can walk in and have everything already set up. Instead, I set up a folding table in my living room when I want to work on something. One benefit of this is staying focused on the project b/c it’s pertinent that I clean up afterwards or there’s not much living room space to use.

    I finally do have a dedicated sewing room! It used to be my sister’s bedroom, but now it is our “office” bu I affectionally call it my craft cave. It is so wonderful to be able to have the space to organize and spread out when working on a project.

    I just moved into a house with room for a dedicated sewing area. Shelves are up and the work table goes in today! It will be great not to have to pick up and move a project before it’s finished.

    I do have a sewing room where I sew most of the time, but I do have a machine in our guest room for when it’s too cold to sew in the basement where my sewing room is.

    We have what we call “the studio”—a small space for office work and creative work. That’s where the sewing happens!

    I now have a dedicated sewing room, but it is in the back of the house. Sometimes I would rather be out in our family room and sew, but my machine is very heavy. I rarely bring it out of the sewing room. This Husqvarna Viking would be absolutely perfect to bring to the family room so I can be with my family and sew!

    Oooh … pretty! I just moved, so no sewing at the moment but the plan is to set up sewing space in the bedroom. Once the kids are grown and gone I’ll have tons of space! 18 years to go! :)

    The spare room in our apartment is half office, half storage, and half sewing room. If the math sounds wrong there, it’s because there’s too much going on in one tiny space!
