Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
When I first started quilting, we lived in a small 2 bedroom house. I sewed at the kitchen table. Pretty soon my quilting stuff was taking over the kitchen table, the living room, and everywhere else I could fit something. It got to a point where I would have to wait for my husband to be out of the house to work on something because the machine would interfere with the TV and he's a big TV watcher.
So when it came to pass that we started looking for another house, one of the top things on my wish list was to have a separate room (it didn't have to be big) where I could have my own sewing room. We found a 3 bedroom house (there was just me, my husband and daughter) with a bonus room. Therefore, I got my sewing room and my husband got his game room. We were very fortunate to find that in our price range.
Now if I want to sew while he watches TV I can go in my sewing room, close the door, and we don't bother each other. I also have a computer and radio set up in there so my daughter can come in and sit and visit with me, listen to the radio with me, or get on the computer while still being in there with me. I think the next step is to a small TV to mount to the wall so I can have the TV on when I'm in there. My husband is against this idea. He says if it wasn't for the 3 shows I watch a week, I would never come out of there....LOL. I'm not a huge fan of TV.
nope! you are not alone. i will have a sewing room if i finish my basement project. got the windows in...that's a good start..right? but i too sew on the dining table the kitchen counter [so much easier for cutting templates, marking fabric to cut etc etc...plus the right height for a bad back] and the only spare bedroom. oh well. plus ...all but essential stuff is still in boxes in garage..i moved fr a house where i used the spare bedroom for sewing..won't work here in this house tho. sigh. hang in there...at least we do get to quilt!!!
