My Qwazy Place To Be… A Sewing Room Just For Me…

Stbs-My Sewing Space 2017-1Over the years of sewing my own sewing spaces, one of the best was in Woodstock, VA when we lived there. It was in the basement, and it was a huge space that really let me spread out. I loved it there. Sadly, like all things in life, jobs were lost, and we ended up moving to San Diego, where I stopped sewing for quite a few years.

Today, my new sewing space in this house is in the Master Bedroom. I would have gladly gone to the basement, but there are a few issues with the basement.. First… Absolutely no bathroom at all exists in the basement… Second.. Two outlets in the entire space of the basement other than the laundry room.. A seamstress/quilter obviously needs more than two outlets. So, my hubby suggested I use the Master Bedroom. Other than no ceiling light in the room, it’s actually quite perfect for me. We are currently using the basement more for fabric storage… hehee…

So, this is how my room looks when you first walk into it:

Straight ahead of the door are shelving units, one that is currently being put together the others are done. To the right, the closed door is the bathroom.

Stbs-My Sewing Space 2017-4I’ve said before how much I love coffee, what sewing room is
complete without Coffee Central…

Stbs-My Sewing Space 2017-5If I were to walk into the shelving area, this is how it would look. I keep my embroidery hoops on a ruler hanger, and on shelf hooks. The hooks hold the hoops I use the most, the ruler hanger hangs the hoops I use the least. Most of the items in the bins in these shelves are all batiks, and landscape prints. The red baskets hold mostly UFO type projects, and supplies such as freezer paper, garbage bags, computer supplies and scrap bags of fabric.

Stbs-My Sewing Space 2017-8When you slightly turn left into the room, you’ll see the cutting area, the closet, the ironing area, and my big drawers.  The drawers contain stabilizers for machine embroidery.

I have rulers underneath the table laying in a magazine rack, with miniature ironing boards, and my cutting machine mats. I also have on the table, next to the Ott lite, a napkin holder that holds smaller rulers. The drawers next to the iron are all sewing machine supplies, needles, scissors, feet, etc..

Stbs-My Sewing Space 2017-9On one side of the closet are fabrics that are separated by color, and not batiks. There are some other miscellaneous things here but really only scraps stuff.

Stbs-My Sewing Space 2017-10The other side of the closet has all the bins with craft supplies in them, larger hoops that don’t fit on the hangers, fleece, and other odd items that need to be on a shelf.

Stbs-My Sewing Space 2017-11and this shows the heart of my sewing room… computer, desktop, machines.. I like them all to be close to me, so I can literally turn and sew. My Bernie is a little farther away now, but I love that I have it on my L-shaped table again with a rotary mat and supplies right there to work while I sew.  All my threads hang out in the drawer units under the tables with the machines.

Stbs-My Sewing Space 2017-12and this is how it looks when I’m sitting in my chair.

The only reason this space is clean is because it’s been getting unpacked. It is unlikely it will ever be this clean again.. hehee

So, I mentioned fabric storage, and your probably thinking everything in this room is what all I have… but… nope..

Down in the basement, what came from San Diego is here…

Stbs-My Sewing Space 2017-2127 bins of beautiful cotton fabrics just waiting for me to come and visit them again…

All of these fabrics were bought in the 1990’s. Pretty Amazing.. eh!!

All I can say is you have a great space and don’t give up your quilting again. If you are like me you will miss it terribly. Enjoy your creativity and fun!


That’s an absolutely fabulous space. You have a terrific master bedroom turned quilt room!

Love your room! Would love to dig in those 90’s bins

I also got the largest room in the house as my sewing studio. It also has a separate entrance through an enclosed front porch. My husband also suggested I take this room as my own.


What a fun place to play! Thanks for sharing this!


You have my dream sewing room. Wow! Impressive!

Wow! You have it all! Great space for being creative.

I have totes like that full of fabric, too. Just don’t have that many! It doesn’t matter to me when fabric is made as long as it is good quality. I’ll make it work!

Your husband is wonderful to give up the master bedroom. Obviously you need the space.


If you add a mini fridge and a microwave you almost wouldn’t have to leave the room and could stay and create for hours on end. What a wonderful husband you have, to give you the master bedroom to do what you love. Well with all that great space I look forward to seeing what you create in the future. Thank you for such a great hop, it was nice to see everyone’s sewing rooms. Your time and effort are very much appreciated, have a wonderful day!!! Bobbie P

Loved seeing your very organized, clean sewing space. When my sewing room grows up, it wants to be just like yours!


Wow, that’s some organized stash you have there! I’d love to have that kind of space for mine. I have it here and there in vintage containers and old dressers. Thank you for coordinating this hop, it was fun!
