    I sew at the kitchen table. Someday I’ll have a sewing room, but for now, the kitchen is my “sewing room”

    I sew on a table in my living room. I call this room my “therapeutic domain”. The sunlight is always a welcoming addition in the day time. This small area is where I zone in and become one with the notions and potions in my sewing basket.

    I sew at home on our table, so when it’s meal times I have to put the sewing machine and everything away and then get everything out again. I currently use an old Kenmore 14 series which is pretty heavy to move. I don’t have my own room as our house is small but I get everything I need to do done, just sucks that it takes me extra long to get my projects done because of all constant moving :(

    My Mother and I are starting to sew again. She taught me when I was very young, but life happens and we have been involved in so many other crafts/hobbies. Now, we’ve decided to return to sewing for practical purposes. We are in the process of setting up our sewing room and this new machine would really be a great asset. Best of sewing wishes to whoever wins.

    Yes, I also have a queston: I love quite a few of your patterns and was wondering if you produce hard copies for sale. I have not gotten the hang of enlarging pdf versions of patterns. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Dining Room be vanquished! It’s now a sewing room, and let me tell ya, it feels a whole bunch more “right”. What’s the attraction of furniture as dust collectors?

    I have a sewing room all to myself… a girl’s dream come true. I bought an old china cabinet and store all my fabrics in there. My sewing room also happens to contain my computer so you can guess where I spend most of my time.

    My man cleared a space in our master bedroom for me to sew. While it’s not totally ideal, we don’t have a bigger place so we make the best out of what we do have. He doesn’t mind that my idea boards are hanging in our bedroom so my creativity does not take a hit from lack of space. :)

    I have a sewing business and through that have lost all of my home machines to the business. Now, when I need to do a project at home I am out of luck until my next day at the shop. It would be great to have a home machine again.

    I sew in my dining room. The table is large enough for most projects, but I sometimes need to spread out my fabric on the floor for the really large patterns.

    I have a small table setup in my bedroom for the sewing machine. Space for sewing is hard to find in our house. I do all my pattern tracing and fabric cutting on the bedroom floor. My husband wants me to get rid of the exercise machine that never gets use to make a larger space for my sewing hobbies.

    In my loft! It’s over the living room, which has the wood stove, so sometimes it gets hot up there. If I didn’t have a dedicated spot I would never get anything done.

    I sew in a dedicated nook in my office space. I’m able to spread out when I need to. Sometimes I’ll cut fabric on our kitchen table.

    After several years of sewing at the dining room table, and having to put things away when I was finished, I now have an actual sewing room. It is wonderful!

    I sew in the kitchen or in the living room or in the bed room… where ever I’m at for the day I will sew and cut with the pads and mats it makes so easy to sew where ever you are at….I even take the machine with me and if I have a project that needs to be complete I will sew on my lunch break in the break room….

    I have a dedicated sewing/craft room. Unfortunately, my fabric and yarn stashes, along with my collection of antique sewing machines and accessories leave little space for actual sewing…

    I have a (mostly) dedicated space for sewing. A place to sew is a requirement when we look for places to live — I have too much equipment and too many supplies to be able to get it out and put it away all the time. With young kids and a full-time job, I have to take any random spare moments to sew, so I need to be able to sit down for even just 10 minutes and get right to work!

    My new home I just purchased came with a sewing room already set up! Though it meant I have extra tables from my earlier set up in my basement that are now homeless….

    I mostly just sew in my bedroom. Right now I’m stuck with hand sewing but I want a machine so badly! That’s all I can think about lately. Being a poor college student sucks :p

    I do not have the luxury of a dedicated sewing room. I mostly wind up commandeering the dining table for cutting and sewing. I stash my fabric wherever I can find space.

    My sewing room is wherever I am! Being an international flight attendant, I always have a suitcase full of sewing notions and fabric to keep me busy :) Because I am a member of the flight crew, I can bring all sorts of sewing stuff with me through all those pesky security checkpoints…although, I don’t recommend bringing seam rippers with you to Tel Aviv. Mine almost got confiscated! At home, I take over the whole house. I cut fabric on my back porch. Store fabric in my bedroom and guest room. Sew on my machines in my guest room. You people know how it is…any available space is fair game! :) Honestly, this Bernina machine would be perfect for me because it is light enough to fit into my flight bag! I could make the world my sewing room…total sewing domination!!! :) :)
