Redesigning my sewing area

I am at the point where I need to redesign for improvement and efficiency.   My quilting area is very small so I will be going vertical.   I will post pics when I get done.   If you have any suggestions for setting up a sewing area in a small space.  Please share them.

redesigning for the good of quilting,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.

  1. Hi Hope. Thanks for sharing your info on you sewing area. I have gotten side tracked and forgot to post pics. My sewing area is 1/2 half of my bedroom I still have a little work to do but will try to post pics soon.

    Thanks for visiting. 🙂


  2. Thanks Sonia for your encouraging comment on my Baby Shower cake.

    I also have a small sewing/quilting area..SIGH. It's also one of my guest/g'children's rooms for visits. My sewing table folds up and can go in the closet..convient…or serve as a desk when I put my sewing machine up..(shh not often!!) I use the closet for storage (I use plastic bins and also a plastic chest of drawers on the side that holds fabrics and tools. I also have a hutch also in the room that holds my magazines and books. There is a daybed that serves for laying out things! and my ironing board (a wide ones serves for ironing and cutting with my huge mat layed on top on a drawing board. I'll have to post pics sometime. My husband bought me a rolling office chair so now I swirl around to iron etc. I also have a special floor lamp for better close lighting. I've done a LOT of sewing here and it works. I also LOVE my window with the view of a bird feeder and my bushes in bloom in Spring..or gentle rain. Oh..and I have one of those photo boards with the ribbon across it..holds patterns, pics of quilts I want to do and photos of finished quilts and my Grandkids!

    Can't wait to see yours.
