Sewing Spaces - Deb Thompson ToursBy AlexisW on 4/24/14 4:37 PM

Spring has sprung and we’re sprucing up our sewing rooms with some much-need spring cleaning!

Thinking about updating your sewing area? For some creative suggestions, we thought it would be fun to take a peek into our members' unique sewing spaces. From resourceful storage solutions to unusual sewing furniture, these practical design ideas may be just the inspiration we need!

Getting us started, Deb Thompson shows us how she organized her dedicated sewing room.

Deb Thompson says, "I read through this thread last week and was inspired to get my sewing space cleaned up so I could share pictures. Here it is!"

Thanks for the decor tour, Deb!

Wow, that space is gorgeous! I am about to move into a bigger space and could use some ideas for the budget-minded sewist. I have a cutting table with hollow pipe legs on castors, but it has become wobbly over the years. I would like to make a sturdier base. Does anyone have any ideas?

I have a cutting/storage table that I love. I was fortunate to find it a garage sale. It was "custom made" by the owner and is very functional. It is two kitchen base cabinets topped with a formica countertop. It has heavy duty casters, allowing me to move it tight to the wall or centered in the room. I can walk all around it for cutting and have all the space and drawers for storage underneath! It's wonderful!

When I had my basement remodeled and turned into my Sewing Center I googled "sewing rooms" and was amazed at all of the wonderful pictures and ideas I came across. Dream Sewing Space by Lynette Black is a tremendous book to have also.

Nicely designed sewing table area. Very jealous of all the machines. I only have a sewing machine and a serger. Sadly, my large sewing room is no more. However I have done well considering the small space I am in. I still have more fabric than this lady. I like the idea of cat beds. My cats always liked to sit on my shoulders when I sew.

You space is so inspirational! I can't wait until the day when I can create my dream sewing space. My spouse is in the military and we move every two to three years.

This room is just absolutely perfect. I'm envious (!) and also inspired to make mine look better. I have a separate sewing room, but have not organized things and gotten it anywhere this nice. This is inspirational.

Ladies I have just experienced sew space envy. You lucky thing! I have to wait till family are out of house so I can use kitchen table otherwise it's shared space, constant interuptions and spilt orange juice. Love them all though.

Put me down for another case of sew space envy! What a beautiful job you have done with this space. I am always grateful that I have a dedicated space, but having seen this, I think I just turned green.
