My Happy Stitchin’ Space

Like a lot of peeps, I too started out sewing on the kitchen table. I did that for about a year until I got a dedicated room when my daughter and grandkids moved out.

I don’t have a pic of that very first room. It was in a different house and before I started blogging.

But here are some early pics of my current sewing room.

I’ve tried countless desks and tables over the years. Here’s a sewing table I helped make.

I used it for awhile, until I messed it up from moving it from room to room.

A couple years ago, I got a wild hair and decided I needed a bigger sewing room. And since all I did in my master bedroom was sleep, I swapped rooms.

The “master” sewing room, if you will.

About a year later, after I had had enough of going through my sewing room to get to the bathroom, I switched them back.

And I did some room improvements!

I painted the room a pretty pale yellow that looks much better in person (color is Chic Yellow by Glidden). I hung pegboards for my rulers, added a floating shelf from IKEA above the design wall for decorating and did some rearranging. I love my saddle chair!

I store my “stripped” stash and Mr. PeePotty supplies under the cutting table. Just to the right of the cutting table are my dies and mats for the die cutter.

Here’s my design wall, which I keep decorated w/orphan blocks between projects, because I can’t stand to see it bare.

There is some serious treasure behind these doors.

My books and modest fabric stash.

The left side is fabric that I’ve purchased and winnings from some awesome giveaways (mostly IG).

And the right side is fabric that has been gifted to me over the years.

I am so fabric rich!

Lastly, my travel machine, UFOs, and other miscellaneous things stored in tubs at bottom of the closet.

And so you have it! My happy stitchin’ space!

Honestly, I would sew in the corner of a closet if I had to, but I’m so very thankful for my room.

There’s no shadow You won’t light up

Mountain You won’t climb up

Coming after me

There’s no wall You won’t kick down

Lie You won’t tear down

Coming after me

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God

Oh, it chases me down, fights ’til I’m found, leaves the ninety-nine

And I couldn’t earn it, I don’t deserve it, still, You give Yourself away

Oh, the overwhelming, never-ending, reckless love of God

  1. Tell me more about the saddle chair. I’ve never heard of them. My lower back gets stiff when I sit and sew too long (I forget to get up and move around!). I tend to sit on the edge of my chair, which doesn’t help. Your quilt space is really nice, by the way!

  2. It looks like you have a very happy place to enjoy sewing up your goodies. But then, I think that you tend to be a pretty happy person. I, too, would like to hear more about your saddle chair.

  3. thank you so much for sharing your sewing room with us, and letting us have a peak in your cupboards ^^

  4. A great room with every thing handy for you to use. You have many inspiring things around you as you work on your sewing projects. So happy you have what you need. You are such a creative woman. I enjoy your blog so much! Some mighty pretty things are made in your sewing room.

  5. It looks great. I’ve toyed with moving from my spare room into the larger bedroom. I’d like to be able to build on a separate room and design it specifically for sewing. ☺

  6. Why is it I enjoy seeing someone else’s stash and sewing room so much. Loved this tour…have gone through the same things as you. You got me back to thinking I need to switch my little bedroom/sewing room to the bigger guest bedroom.
