In our previous townhome, my sewing room doubled as the guest room and it was the first room people saw when they walked in. So I had to keep it fairly clean and continuously pack and unpack my projects.
But in our current home, I'm fortunate to have a secondary bedroom that is completely dedicated as my sewing studio. It's bright and cheerful and a great place to escape, turn up the music, and just create :)
I can't pick just one favorite item, but some things that have made my life easier are:
- the Craigslist cabinet, which just so happened to be a perfect fit for a 24" x 36" cutting mat.
- the sewing table (a Christmas present from the hubs), which is way more ergonomic than the drop-leaf table I was using before.
- the IKEA Billy bookcases so I can see all my fabric.
- my DIY design wall.
