When we first moved into this home 13 years ago I used the upstairs hall as my sewing area. Its 10 ft wide at one end with a very large window. With all the doors ( 4 bedrooms and a bath) it takes creativity to use but it works. As the children grew and needed more playroom my sewing ended up in a closet and else where throughout the house. Every time I needed to sew or iron I had to pull it out of the closet set up and of course put it all away later. No one is using the hall anymore. So I set up there again. I hope to get 2 quilts done this year as well as several other gifts. Having the area set up and ready helps me to accomplish so much more.
