My Sewing Room

Susan asked us to show her our sewing rooms to inspire her now she is going to have a dedicated sewing room again so here is mine.

I am lucky enough to have the attic of our house for my sewing room but it does have to double up as our guest room on occasion, so there is a futon bed against one wall. This is a very popular napping spot for one of our cats LOL

On one side of the room I have my worktable, this is usually where I will sit and stitch as it has the best natural light in the room from the Velux windows. The tall chest of drawers behind my chair contains the majority of my threads.

On the other side is the chest of drawers I keep my fabric and some of my kits in. It originally belonged to my Gran and was part of the bedroom set she bought when she got married in 1932.

The end of the room is all shelving, this is where the rest of my stash lives. In front of them is my rocking chair and an antique sewing box that we were given as a wedding present.

I hope you have all enjoyed the tour of my sewing room

I love all the stitching hanging over the bed. It looks like a very peaceful place. Alas, I have no dedicated sewing room. Another child will have to leave the nest in order for that to happen :).

I'm envious of anyone who has a sewing room! Yours looks really nice!

Sharon said...

Such a lovely room - thank you for showing!

A lovely place to settle yourself down for some peace and stitching! I don't have a room of my own for my stitching - I just fit myself into any corner - anywhere there's space, I'll sit and stitch!

Sam said...

All I can say Karoline is... WOW! What a beautiful sewing room and I love your fabric cabinet.

Susan said...

Thanks for sharing, Karoline! I love all the light that your room has, and it's so spacious!

I love your room! Unfortunately, my stitching area is just a small bedroom, so it won't be anywhere near as roomy as yours!

Siobhan said...

Wow! Like Margaret, I am envious of anybody with a sewing room. Yours is just wonderful!

Andrea said...

A great room Karoline. Neat and tidy too. :)

Maren said...

That is all so neat and tidy! Wow. I'm almost ashamed to show mine. It's all in boxes and bags.

Nancy said...

I love your sewing room! It looks so nice and light, and I love the ceiling. You have it fixed up so pretty. Your samplers hanging on the lattice is such a pretty idea.

Barbara said...

You are so lucky to have such a beautiful sewing room. It's very light and airy looking and great shelving. I wonder you ever want to come down! Bx
