If you have a room for quilting, you need to make sure that you get enough space to keep all the equipment you need there, no matter big or small. Many people have adjusted themselves with small quilting rooms. But now a day, the adjustment is not needed. There are a lot of ways where you can fix the quilting room that too for a low cost. Enough space is needed to keep the scissors, pins etc. So if you spend some time in fixing the quilting room you will be getting a good space for your work.
The main places where a quilter moves into are the sewing machine, the ironing table, and the cutting mat. If you check in many quilting rooms, all three will be in different directions. If you bring these three together with a distance which is not so far, you can get enough space in the quilting room. Lighting is needed for a better quilting especially, the cutting table is the place where more light is needed. You can opt for clamp-on desk lamps which are quite adjustable and allows you to move the light wherever you need. A good floor lamp can also be used as it also provide good lighting which falls everywhere in the quilting room.
Fabric storage is one of the major concerns that is faced by most of the quilters. Fabrics are packed into the dresser drawers and then to the boxes. When you find difficult to stock more fabric is when you think about having more space. But if you think for a while, you will understand that if you have folded the fabric properly, you would have got enough space.
If you carefully look at your quilting rooms, you will find different ways to get more space which can be used wisely.
