    I sew on any available surface I can find. For now the dining room table is my spot. I wish I had a sewing room!

    I sew in my basement. It’s not really a dedicated sewing room, since my basement is mainly one open space, but I have a sewing “area”. It’s a decent amount of space, but my mom and I are always fighting over it! :)

    I sew in my bedroom, anywhere there is free space, BUT my New Year’s Resolution is to actually set up a sewing corner in there.

    My dining room table is ideal to do all my sewing. Now that I’m an empty nester I have all the room in the world.

    Oh, I wish I had a sewing room. I sew at the dining room table in the thick of our household activity. I like being in that busy spot and I like the fact that it compels me to stay organized. I tend to clean up the sewing clutter in the evenings. I just wish I had space for the growing fabric stash. I just tested this machine and LOVED it!

    I have a sewing area in a loft area of the apartment. It’s a long table with some storage underneath. The best part is that I have a sweeping view of New York harbor and downtown Manhattan.

    I have a temporary roommate right now in my usual dedicated sewing room, so I’ve been utilizing the kitchen as my setup for the holidays. I have a huuuuge kitchen, so the linoleum open floor is perfect for stretching out and cutting fabrics!

    It is the 3rd bedroom but I call it my room. It is my office, my sewing room, my craft storage and whatever I make it room. I have my quilt wall blanket pinned to the wall and the closet stuffed with all my other craft and fabric supplies.

    I don’t have a dedicated sewing space, although I do have a crafting studio that I use as a multi purpose space. One day I hope to have a home of my own instead of an apartment so I can have a whole room to myself… preferably an attic with a tom of skylights that I can finish and transform into a real studio.

    Sewing happens my Sewing Studio, a teeny tiny room off of my kitchen. Cutting and pinning happens on the dining room table or on the ironing board that I place in the hallway… or, if I’m using my handmade body form, it actually happens IN the kitchen. It’s tight but cozy! When I sew, it usually takes over the entire house, regardless of my designated sewing closet!

    Loving these Holiday giveaways!

    No sewing room, but I have a sewing desk. I only dream that one day I will get my sewing room.

    I would love to have a dedicated room. Eventually, when we move to a house there will be a special crafts room. In my mind I already have everything planned. Big features will be many shelves for fabrics and my jewelry making supplies. Just thinking about it makes me excited!

    I sew in my living room, because in my tiny apartment my living room is also my dining room and my sewing space. Someday I dream of a crafts room. Oh, how I dream.

    Yes I have a dedicated sewing room but it is too small and crowded with fabric. I use the kitchen island for drafting, laying out and cutting my patterns. It is just the right height and size.

    A few years ago, I had to retire early with a disability. I always wanted a dedicated sewing space. A place especially for me to create and feel free to spread out my projects. My husband created such a place in 1/2 our basement . Sure the furnace is noisy and the washer/dryer is loud, but the space is mine at last. I have decorated it and filled it with all the good things I use for sewing and crafts. Thanks, honey.

    I cleaned out my basement last summer and created a sewing area there. Now I have most everything organized for easy access and an old dining table converted into a cutting table.

    I sew upstairs in my family’s craft/hobby/living room. I have my own sewing desk set up and when I sew, I pretty much take up all of the tables and most of the floor with fabric and patterns.

    I feel very fortunate to have an entire room as my sewing space. I used to have a large nook in our bedroom, but the current room is larger. Funny enough, I’m now thinking that it’s getting crowded and I’m dreaming of an even larger space!

    Sewing happens in my combo office/sewing room, which allows me to make a big mess, and close the door behind me!

    My loft used to be my sewing/craft room but since I moved, I have to keep my sewing machine in a storage case and take it out for when I need it. I’m hoping that some day I will have a sewing room all to myself.

    I sew in my office space. If I do hand sewing I will sit on the couch and watch a movie.

    I have transformed my small apartment into a sewing atelier. I have a place to sew, cut out fabric, and press garments, but I do not have a dedicated area to dine! :)

    I’d love to have a dedicated space for crafts but I don’t, so I sew in the dining room. If I’m in the middle of a project my sewing machine will be at one end of the dining room table and the other end of the table is cleared for drawing or re-drafting patterns and cutting fabric (and we eat sitting on the living room couch instead of at the table).

    i am lucky enough to have a sewing room/office so my mess doesn’t have to take over the rest of our living space. i used to used to sew out of a corner in our bedroom so i am very grateful to have my own space!
