    Currently the only place I can set up my old machine is on the dining room table. My machine is an old singer that needs cams to change stitches & can’t keep the tension right – a new machine would be really great. If I ever finish some redecorating, I am going to try to buy a fold away sewing table for my bedroom, where I can sew without getting in everyone’s way.

    My “sewing room” is a corner of our enclosed patio. The windows don’t shut very tightly so I have to keep everything covered between sewing sessions to stay clean. There is no heater nor air conditioner but fortunately we live in a temperate part of California so it is OK for 3/4 of the year. The advantages are the great natural light in the daytime and I can leave out unfinished projects, albeit covered. It would be great to have a compact machine that I could move indoors if I want to sew at night or during the coldest/hottest months.

    Yes, I have a dedicated sewing room. I love having a place where I can leave my organized mess out until my next sewing day.

    I sew at my desk. It’s really annoying though as when I want to use my laptop my sewing machine has to get packed away and vice versa. I dream about having a sewing room with a huge cutting table and room for both my laptop and machine.

    I sew on the couch, by hand, while watching (or not watching…) TV. I could use a dedicated area!

    Ah! if only I could have a room to sew in. Sewing begins on the living room floor, where my lay out and cutting are accomplished. On to the dining room where my sewing machine waits patiently. Also in that room, on the floor, chairs and every spare spot you will find boxes of thread, zippers, trims, pins etc. These ‘extra’ items are stored in the built-in cabinet that resides in the dining room.. Where you ask are my dishes….one must have priorities …. In the basement you will find boxes of my fabric stash, and the remaining rooms contribute by storing the pieces of thread and whatever else that latch on to my socks and come off on to the carpet. PS. My small little house was built in 1903.

    I have a dedicated sewing room, we converted it from the previous home owners’ model train room so it’s gigantic.

    I do have my own sewing room, something I never take for granted, having sewn on the kitchen table for years and years! It is a dedicated sewing room, and I love it – it’s like my little nest :)

    even though i often dream of sewing my own clothes I really mostly sew things for around the house, curtains, cushions, etc. I also sew a lot of costumes, which is always super fun. No sewing room of my very own, but we just got a 2nd bedroom so at least now I don’t have to do it on the kitchen counter!

    I am fortunate enough to have a separate sewing room. I do, however, have to pack up my machine and stuff to take it on weekends to my boyfriends house.

    I took over the spare bedroom for my sewing…I utilize the dresser for my material, the makeup table as my sewing table and an old kitchen table for cutting…it’s not pretty but it works ;)

    I have taken over my husband’s office. The closet door is blocked with a cutting table and his desk is now my sewing table. He cannot even open the desk drawers and the books shelf homes my fabric. I have nicely staked his books on either side of the shelf.

    My one room studio apartment is my sewing room. I sew at a giant table in the center of the room, that also doubles as desk, kitchen table, ironing board and bed for the occasional out of town guests.

    I cannot wait to one day have my own apartment, but until I get out of college, my bedroom is my designated sewing room! I have a huge table for my machine/ work space. It could use a better sewing machine though! This one is beautiful. :D

    Where do you sew? Do you have a dedicated sewing room?

    I used to have a sewing room but after I moved into a smaller apartment my sewing room is now a sewing corner. I have all my supplies, mannequin, table and machine all in one corner of the living room. Hopefully after I graduate and find job I can afford a home with a designated sewing room :D!
