My Sewing Room & Sewing Machine Collection

I thought I might share some pictures of my sewing room. I am VERY fortunate to have my own room that I use as a Sewing Room/ Office. I got rid of my large desk and had these cabinets put in. One side is my office and one side is for sewing. As you can see my closet holds my fabric and each basket is labeled by season. The the wicker bookcase I store my quilts completed and the plastic boxes on the bottom shelf hold quilt projects . I collect Antique childrens sewing machines and have them displayed thru out the room.
It has been raining the last 3 days so I have been using my time wisely cleaning and organizing my sewing room. Just thought it was a Kodak moment ! Enjoy !
