It is not exactly a room, I don't really know what you would call it. When we were looking at houses we tried to make it a priority to find a house that would have 1) a home office for my husband since he works very long hours and this way he can work at home sometimes and 2) a sewing space for me. The house we ended up buying has an addition that was made for the previous owner's parents to live in. It is basically an extra bedroom (my husband's office) plus an extra space between the living room and the office. I don't know what the previous owners used this space for, but it is my sewing room.
Because I was previously sewing on the kitchen table, I needed a new sewing surface. I bought 2 identical desks from Ikea which are great because you can actually raise the table top a few inches to make for easier rotary cutting.
The space already had built in cabinets. They are nice to have, but not as nice as I anticipated since they are so deep that if I put things in them it is difficult to reach. I have some bins with my solid fabrics, scrap bins, interfacing, and other supplies in them. The drawers are great and hold all kinds of other supplies like ribbon, elastic, zippers, etc.
The counter has been great for my iron since I don't have room for a full size ironing board in the room. I like to keep my current projects on the counter, though they normally get buried under other things. It is not normally this orderly. The door in the photo below opens to the side yard of the house.
Since I am no longer quilting at the kitchen table anymore I considered changing the name of the blog, but that is how I got started so I think I'll keep it :)
