While many a seamstress has dreamed of designing their own sewing room, few really get the opportunity to create their own crafty space where they can work uninterrupted. For many of us, having a sewing room is a great chance for getting all of our sewing materials organized and at the same time de-cluttering our house, garage and storage spaces.

Before you get started on making your sewing room plans, you need to take stock of what equipment you already have in your home. Your materials will probably  include things like: a sewing machine, a cabinet and/or table, books, yards of fabric, boxes of used or new patterns, storage boxes for your notions – thread, buttons, zippers, fasteners and a whole bunch more! » Continue reading Top Tips on How to Design Your Own Sewing Room »
