I know my Facebook friends have seen the pictures but I thought maybe some of my board buddy's may not have seen the pictures. As you can tell I am thrilled over it. I have wanted a room just for sewing for a long time.

I think this will do just fine.
You have an awesome sewing space. Looks like everythin you will ever need is in there. I love all your shelving. It keeps everything so organized.
Nice!! Great space.
Very nice! I love having a dedicated woman cave. Obviously you don't live in the heat of Texas. My garage has a wall of shelves with bins of fabric but it's so hot out there it's hard to breath.
Love your space. Everything is handy and organized.
l would be unstopable IF l could get started!!!
I love your sewing space. I could see myself being very happy working away in there. I would also like to give you a pat on the back for being so neat & organized. WTG!
Neat and organized come to mind when I look at your pictures. I'm loving your space. Your "little Corner of the world" is functional. Great space, thanks for sharing with us.
very nice. as for garage use. I have seen screens for garage doors for those that use that space to let a little air in yet still be closed in .
Great space, Erme! I just love seeing where you like to work.
I thought you did live in Texas, but I must be mistaken, or your space has to be air conditioned!
Love it, Erma! I know you'll enjoy it.
What a GREAT space! I bet your board name suits you especially well now!
Nice space...but I don't see near enough fabric in there
Karen if you look at the first picture you will see a dark spot on the ceiling. That is the central heat and air. So I am all set for the hot summers and cold winters. Thank goodness the builders of this place were thinking some 50 years ago. If only they had put in some walk in closets. We did have a new garage door with insulation installed. After that and a new paint job. DH got in the spirit of things and decided I needed carpet. Which can be removed if we ever sell the house.
Very nice! It's great to have an organized space.
That's a great "room". Hey, space is space, right? last night I watched t.v. and House Hunters were looking at a garage area. It had crown molding and popcorn ceiling! I think someone used it as a "room" once too.
I wish i were as organized as you are.
I love your space! Lots of room to do whatever you decide to do. I have a space like that, only our SUV and truck are in the way.
Looks like you got things very organized and a great woman's cave. Love it.
If life hands you scraps make quilts
Oh sweet! I'd love to do that but I'd have to find alternate homes for the tools, the lawnmower, the bikes, the birdseed, the paint cans, etc. etc. etc. Emphasis on etc.!!
Our garage was also "finished" when we bought the house - ceiling & walls drywalled, heat & a/c ducts, and even vinyl flooring. I don't think a car was ever parked in there. The former owner was a minister with 4 kids, so we think he used it as his office.
And yes -- want me to come show you how to squeeze about 5000 pieces of fabric into less space than that???
Congrats! What a terrific little corner of the world. Enjoy it.
Very inviting!! Enjoy your new space.
WOW how neat is that I am envious so you are
one lucky quilter. ENJOY
It's nice to have your own space. Looks great!
Such a great sewing room. Can be really creative in there. My garage is too full of other stuff to do that.
Wow! What a get-Away!
Starry and Elaine, Our garage was a hoarders paradise before the clean up. DH had a tool shed in the back yard that housed old or broken tools. It now has the good tools. He cleaned out his small workshop in the backyard got industrial shelves for it and moved all the car tools in there. We still have a lot of house type tools in the garage, I mean sewing room, but I covered the area with a curtain. My first project is to make a new curtain from a sewing themed fabric.
Elaine,I bet my DH never says when all heck freezes over again.
Thanks to all for the wonderful comments. I thought as we were putting up shelves it would look like a warehouse but things do organize well that way. I found so much stuff that I had forgotten about, too. Like 7 seam rippers and about 30 little cases of assorted machine needles unopened and the hand needles to numerous to count. Best of all I found all my yoyo makers. Oh and the fabric i had forgotten about. I still have more fabric at a rental storage but I hope to whittle down some of this stuff before I go get those boxes.
Wow, what am amazing, beautiful space! I just love the way you have the beads and everything together and so organized. I would have never guessed that was a garage if you had not said so. And I really love all of the personal touches that you added with items that had been in your family for many years. And hearing how much work you did to make it Into sewing room gives me hope that one day I will get it together and have a little craft area in my bedroom. Thank you so much for sharing it!
Wonderful organized space and a lot of work to get it so nice. I especially like how it attaches to the main part of the home, and has comfort built in. Enjoy.
Really, really nice space!!!! Makes it easy to create wonderful quilts with that kind of wonderful space and things looking so well organized!!!
Really makes me want to go clean up (out!! ) my sewing room!!
Love this idea - but at -40* would not work for me in the winter!!! Although, my idea of having the roof lifted and my room being put up on top of the garage, would!!!! And I have thought of this many, many times!!! But, saying that, I also do not have the collection of 'stuff' you do, so I should be able to use my 'space' better and make it work for me...... Yup, got to get sewing and make my room my own!!
Thanks for showing us all what is possible when you see a new area in a different light!! LOVE your new room - now to make that machine sing and have you two create beautiful quilts/projects together!!!!
