we're undergoing a major remodel after a kitchen fire. i have a big desk in our computer room, and we've talked about adding shelves for storage. i never seem to work there. it's good to have a door to hide the mess, but i usually work on projects in the living room where my family, and the tv is .if it's something messy i work in the kitchen.  i'm debating if i need to improve the craftroom,or move to a corner of the living room....

interested in a private atc swap-i am collecting ATC cards to be framed in a collage and auction to raise money for Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma research. (ACCRF) project blog-    atc4acc.blogspot.com

I still spread out - depending on the project.  I sometime use the kitchen table if I need to spread out.  If it is a portable thing like knitting or crochet, or beading, I will do it on the sofa while watching TV with Jim.

But a few years ago we did a second story addition and we turned our old master bedroom into my craft room - and it is a great place to go and work on a project that takes a lot of time, makes mess, or I need to concentrate on.  The door <in theory> hides the mess, and I don't have to put things away until I want to.  It also has great light and lots of <in theory> storage.  It's also a great place to hide items from others if they are meant to be a surprise!

I am a huge advocate of having your own dedicated space - improve the craft room, but keep the other options open!

The <in theory> is because I am a horrible craft hoarder/slob....

I usually do craft work at the living room, because my kitchen room is too small to do that...if the weather is great and I'll do it in my garden.

I like to be with the people too! I used to have a craft room (now a nursery Smiley ) but I never seemed to use it for anything other than storage. Mostly it just collected things until I had to clear it out.

My craft space is in the landing/foyer in front of the two bedrooms upstairs.  It is painted in a color I love, decorated with things I love, and is my oasis!

Before I had this space, all I had was a big Tupperware tub that I stored in my closet!  Tongue

My craft space is actually all over the place since most of my products need to collaborate with the other. I feel more passionate when I am working with other and sharing the knowledge. My craft has never been done by one person.
One product has never been completed by neither one process nor one place. I could say that my craft space is all over the country. Where I can find the good craftsmanship, it is where I start collaborating to create new product. It always motivates and inspires me when I am in new environment.

The whole house Lol!
I actually do have a studio but decided it was too small so moved my sewing machines to the guest room. I still do most of my painting and crafty stuff in there but I also have paintings I'm working on in the lunge room , plus craft projects covering the couch so I can do them whilst watching tv Smiley

I was ogling a beautiful loom the other day and thinking about that empty space by the living room window... It's pretty, it would look nice as a piece of interesting furniture, right?
I'd love to move my sewing machines and fabric to the 3rd floor guest room but the cat lives up there with the teenager and it's been turned into a stop motion photography studio for that boy. Oh well, just have to stay organized in the studio. Besides, I use fabric for lots of non-sewing crafts too.

I love the look of vintage looms and spinning wheels - but they are so large!
