I tried to post pics yesterday of my redecorated sewing room in its empty glory but everything crashed so today I hope I can do things better as I now have some furniture.

I am determined that this time I am going to organise things properly.  I knew I wanted a good sized work station and a bit of browsing on FB Marketplace and Gumtree produced two desks. Next week I get the last of my furniture back, so a couple of bookcases and a small chest of drawers will be installed.

Hope I can start some actual sewing soon 0_0

* There was a house in my town that had a fire, it didnt look too serious from the outside, the front door and one window was boarded up and there was smoke damage on the exterior of the house, but it took years before the damage was repaired

This was DHs contribution to the fitting out  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  

He has earned serious brownie points. The machine has been dropped down to table level and with a lovely space to the left and right I’m looking forward to some serious sewing,once I’ve made several pairs of curtains.

Ooh, am I jealous!  That's perfect.  I have an attic room but full of the old furniture and power points fairly inaccessible.  Can't change it, I'm afraid, so I shall enjoy your room vicariously.

Well @Iminei I think it would be perfectly acceptable to fit a sewing machine into a dining table. 

Count me in for PL.. :D

Haha that’s exactly what I thought @Iminei
I would love to have some sockets at that level.  I have to grovel under my worktop. But I don’t like to grumble as I love my sewing room as it’s nice and light and sunny and realise I am lucky to have one.

Ellabella, you are so lucky to have a sewing room.  I sew in the dining room which means unpacking and repacking everything after every sewing session.  Mr. SC is not happy about my suggestion of using the spare bedroom as a sewing room.


Me too :( and if its too late ie 3pm, I just dont bother getting everything unpacked and ready to have to repack it away into the corner a couple of hours later! Imi

Francesca,
Thanks for the suggestion and I will try to talk himself round to this way of thinking.

Hahaha.  Only just picked this up @Iminei.  No I’m not too far away!  I wouldn’t get many folks in my room as there is a big cutting table taking up most of the room and several machines on the workbench.  We won’t talk about the mess that’s lying around.  :o

@So Chic 
I hate the idea of having a guest room just for the rare occasion guests arrive, and not allowing yourself to enjoy your hobby instead in your own house!

I’m with you there Fran.  Seems such a waste.  I’m lucky I still have a spare room as well.....which is used about twice a year if my mum stays over or when stepson and wife come to us.
My mum was always complaining about her bungalow because she couldn’t offer a nice room to my uncle and aunt when they stayed.....a couple of times a year.  :[ The rest of the time it was her craft room with a knitting machine, motor, ribber etc  so took up a huge amount of space.  Now she is in a one bed retirement flat and we have still managed to get the knitting machine in the bedroom.

Love those power points, in the right place, mine are near the skirting board along with a six gang extension. You can't see them though too much other stuff underneath.  That empty floor is just crying out for something to cover it up.  Or are you going to be really good and show us all up, well nearly all of us.  I shall try not to be too envious.
