    I have a table in my living room, and it takes over a huge chunk of the space. Luckily I’ve got my own place, so there’s no roommates to get annoyed when projects take over living space.

    I sew wherever I can. We have moved several times in the past couple years so my sewing room is wherever I can squeeze out a little space. Our current situation finds us renovating an old warehouse and part of the renovation will include a sewing studio for me. I can hardly wait to settle in to a space and be able to put things away instead of digging through boxes looking for the thing I need for a project and to move out of the windowless basement room I currently sew in.

    Right now, my dedicated sewing space is a section of our basement. I have a 4-H sewing group and that is where we meet. It is crowded when all of my 4-H’ers are set up to sew. I need to get the house and my craft space better organized so We all can work better!

    I sew in lots of places! ‘Have sewing machine will travel’ Mostly you will find me sewing at my kitchen table. I did just make a 5 ft sewing table in my office but it quickly got covered up with my son’s lego’s :) I guess I will share. What a beautiful sewing machine! – Anna

    Finally, for the first time in my life I am fortunate enough to be able to afford a place without a roommate. The room that would normally be designated for said roommate is now my sewing room/art space. In fact I even got a large stainless steel shelving unit to store all my fabrics. It is so nice to have this space! It helps the creativity, especially when I don’t need to clean up to make the kitchen or living room functional.

    I’m in the process of moving and will have a dedicated sewing room! I’m very excited and can hardly wait to be able to get the room set up. This new machine would look lovely in there.

    My current sewing machine is rather heavy and a lightweight machine that could do the same things (and this one can do more) would be a boon to me!

    Well I used to do it in the living room, but the stacks of fabric frustrated everyone, then my kids moved out and voila, I had a craft room which was sooooooo nice, then voila they came back, so now I do it on the dining room table.

    I am such a devoted sewer that my sewing machine is in my living room I have a dedicated sewing table and then a general craft table for cutting out patterns and all other craft needs. I live in a small one bedroom Apartment and the view out the living room widow is better than my bedroom.

    I had to wait 30 years for all the kids to grow up and leave, but I finally got my sewing room. At one point I was even a “closet sewer.” ha ha ha

    I converted my living room into my sewing room. My grandma past away recently and i inherited her sewing room filled with vintage patterns, thread, fabric, etc. I used a husky monogram sewing machine back in high school, which i loved. The opportunity to win this one would be a huge upgrade from mine now.

    We have a combination living room dinning room in our apartment. I have a small desk for my machine in a corner of the living room and I use the dinning room table as a work space.

    I sew on a table in the living room but I pin up patterns on a dedicated magnetic board in a spare bedroom. I have a Husky Star and would love to upgrade with this machine.

    I hand-sew, so I can sew anywhere. I would LOVE to work on a sewing machine though.

    I live in a small apartment so we don’t have the luxury of a dedicated sewing space. I have a serger set up on a desk in my overcrowded bedroom and my ancient, heavy sewing machine on my computer desk in the living room. Considering how often I have to move my machine to make space, I’d love to have something more portable!

    I have a sewing room, but it has been taken over by computer stuff. So my sewing machines have taken over the dining room.

    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 :(

    Because the house is a little crowded with occupants at the moment, I have one corner of the basement set up with my machines and supplies. I just recently have been finally able to spend a little bit more time sewing, and have several projects going….need to finish those first before I allow myself to do anymore fabric shopping! :)

    I have a spare bedroom “sewing studio” that is way too small to house my collection of fashion, costume and sewing books, let alone my fabirc and trims stash! But, I am lucky to have a space to call my own for my work.

    This week was bittersweet- my daughter moved out of our home and into her own apartment, which freed up an entire room for my sewing! Now I have a space where I can work and make creative messes to my heart’s content! So what shall I make first? Probably some curtains and new pillows for her new home.

    Where do you sew? Do you have a dedicated sewing room? I have a sewing/craft/office room with my regular sewing machine, serger, dress form and cutting table. All my machine sewing is done there. My hand sewing, however, is often done in the living room to be closer to the family.

    I have a craft room but no dedicated space for sewing. I put my machine back up each time I use it.
