What would you love to add to your sewing space and why don't you have it now? Is there something you have been pining for that you just haven't found time or money to acquire? Or do you want/need something you just haven't got "aroundtuit" yet?

Me: better light. I have a nice, bright room, but at night or even sometimes in the daytime, it is coming from the wrong direction. I would love one of those TV designers to come in and install all those cool task lights etc. And since we're at it, make them all "green" and solar powered.

For me, I would need John Cusack to help me arrange my fabric!

Seriously, what I think I'm going to add next month is a pegboard. From seeing others sewing room, this is one feature that really helps with organization.

I have a pretty small sewing room. It probably doesn't help I have a small herd of vintage sewing machines and they seem to take up the space!

So far, I've managed to obtain everything on my wish list, from the pink walls with Victorian lace curtains to the perfect furniture and machines, and even a three-way mirror. The only thing left for me to pine after, at this point, is a cabinet with glass doors to display my white Featherweight and to store my embroidery machine and blind hemmer, since I don't use them everyday. I don't know if such a thing exists, but I check CraigsList daily, hoping I'll find it.

Oh Mufffet! I kinda had a feeling someone would go there. We had a similar discussion on a yoga forum years ago and some clever yoga gal asked for Rodney Yee for her yoga room. But you get points for speed!! So - does Hugh sew at all?

I'd like a window or two -- but there is not hope for getting it.

Of the things that are possible, a pegboard and a 3 way mirror are still on my wishlist.

I'd like to add about 100 square feet....if I had the extra space I could get some cabinets to store fabric (instead of the stacked bins) and spread out with some elbow room.

2012 : starting stash 386, net additions 206, used 164, ending stash 428...I'm never going to get in front of this pile of fabric!
