New Sewing Space

I wanted to share my new larger sewing/quilting space. My DH has enlarged it. While we're not quite finished with it, I wanted to show some pictures.

Here's one of my new cabinet. It's great for housing my machine bags and hanging tops waiting to be quilted.

The wire bins next to it house pieces of fabric that are less than a yard.



I have cubes to hold my larger pieces of fabric. I have them stored by color. It took me hours to fold the fabrics so they would fit in the space.
Here's the bottom half.......


I have shelves to hold batting or a bolt of muslin and other large things.


My sewing machines....


Some of the walls have foam board so that I can use them as design walls.....

These are blocks from a Christmas exchange that I'm doing.
We still have some peg board to add to one of the other walls.
This is the most amount of space that I have ever had to devote to sewing and I'm so excited and blessed to have it. Now I don't have any excuse for not getting things done.
Thanks for looking!

I'm so jelouse - what a great working space - I have a small corner in my bedroom to sew and all my stash in my basement! UG!

Love the shelving! You may want to put a moisture barrier between your cement walls and your fabrics.

When we had contractors in our basement to do some work they recommended the moisture barrier drywall boards that are used in showers.

thanks for entering the giveaway at my blog!

What a great workspace. I absolutely can NOT work in a mess. It's not fun. I must feel the "chai!"
Love your quilts - is that a rail fence? And I must look up the Australian lady who "folds" fabric instead of rocks. Looks like a very interesting concept.
Enjoy this beautiful autumn day!
