    I sew in the living room, in front of the tv. :) My 2 machines are 60 and 40 years old, a little black singer portable and a bulky singer slant-o-matic, and I love them but it’s about time to upgrade!

    I don’t have a dedicated sewing room. So where I sew depends on what type of sewing I’m doing. If its mending or alterations it is usually on my portable 60s era Husqvarna on the dining room table. Otherwise for larger projects it is in my bedroom on my old Necchi.

    I am blessed to have an extra bedroom that when we moved in was designated as my sewing room. I spend every chance I get tucked away in this room!

    I wish I had a sewing room. I have a tiny nook in the corner of my living room where my machine and fabric/notion stash is located. My tabletop iron is on my dining table, and I cut fabric on the floor. I sew everyday, so it’s always a mess in there!

    I used to have one but since our babay boy was born, I don’t have one anymore. My former craft room became a nursery so I moved to the table in the dining room :(

    I have a dedicated sewing room. It’s too small for anything but a small table with my machine and an ironing board. I do my cutting on the floor.

    I sew in my living room and sadly on a tv tray table. We live in a very small apartment, but hey, it works!

    I hope to win! yay! Thank you for the opportunity to enter.

    Since we don’t really use our dining room unless we have people over, it has become my makeshift sewing room. A giant dining table makes for a great place for sewing, cutting and laying out fabric!

    I just finally finished my studio – it’s for DIY in general, but I finally have a dedicated sewing desk!!! :D

    It’s so nice to have a creative space, and it would be so much NICER with a beautiful sewing machine that’s not as old as I am! lol

    I have to sew at the kitchen table, which means cleaning everything off, doing the sewing, then putting everything away, and then putting the things that belong on the kitchen table.

    Unfortunately, I don’t have a dedicated sewing room. We are in transition now and I sew on my amish built table in the great room in front of many windows overlooking a field.

    I sew in the dining room and set up the ironing board in the kitchen. It’s difficult to sew when anybody else is home. Hopefully I’ll get myself set up soon in our “extra room,” which is a glorified garage.

    In my tiny townhouse, there’s a tiny room with a window. It’s actually the first room you see when you head upstairs. Anyhow, by that window, I have a table and there sits my pretty sewing machine. I guess you can consider that room my dedicated sewing room, but really, I have fabrics, and thread, and sewing books all over the house (and probably pins, too!), so I guess my entire house is my dedicated sewing room!

    Alas, I’m not one of those people are lucky enough to have a dedicated sewing/craft space. My sewing takes place on the dining room table. But since it’s our ONLY dining room table, I have to temporary-pack-up everything at meal time.

    Being an empty nester has its advantages. I am happy to have extra bedrooms, and one of those is my sewing room. It is a nice sized room, but I don’t know if there is every a room truly large enough for everything!

    I have a dedicated sewing room. It is my room no one else allowed. I also sew at ASG meeting and would love a machine to take to the meetings and charity events.

    A few years ago, we finished our attic into “flex space” that includes a craft/sewing area for me. I love having a room where I can keep all of my sewing and craft stuff together (it used to be all over the house) and I can leave in-progress projects laying out (verses packing away to make room for dinner every night!). But I don’t get up there as much as I would like (toddlers, work, …). Occasionally I still bring my sewing machine down into the dining room when I want to work on something around my other kitchen/laundry activities.

    i don’t have a dedicated sewing room, unfortunately, i share a second bedroom with my boyfriend’s books, vhs and dvds. it’s a pretty tiny room, so it’s a tight squeeze and plenty of moving stuff around when I want to use my cutting table :-(

    Wow! Fabulous giveaway!!! No, I don’t have a dedicated room… that would be lovely. I have a small table in my bedroom that has all of my supplies. Mostly, I sew things for my kids…. cute, quick projects.

    I sew in my bedroom, storing supplies in my armoire. Or if I’m doing a big project sometimes I set up on the dining room table.

    I sew because it gives me immense satifaction and I love vintage patterns. It’s hard to find affordable, awesome vintage anyway and this way I get to customize it. I have a bedroom dedicated to sewing that is a complete and total disaster. One of my holiday projects is to get it in order!

    My dining room is my dedicated sewing space. I don’t have a dining table in there. Instead I have a sewing table, a chest of drawers for fabric and shelves for all the goodies and notions. It’s always a mess when I’m in the midst of a project and it makes it hard to have my home presentable for guests. But I have good lighting!

    Due to limited space, my sewing and cutting table is set up in my bedroom. I use my bedroom closet to store my fabric and supplies. My sewing furniture closes up so it is very easy to put out of the way when not in use which is not very often truthfully. I long for the day when I could have my own sewing studio. We have been thinking of converting a section on our garage…maybe someday.
