Score Your Sewing Space!

Hello readers - today I have something fun for you! I have been re-doing my sewing space (still trying to figure out how fit an office, a guest room, and a sewing area in one tiny room) and I found this interesting article in a pile of sewing goods from my mom :)  It was very helpful in planning my new arrangement, especially with things I would never have thought about, like lighting or waste baskets.


The original article is paper&pencil, but in this technological age, I thought it would be more fun to have an online quiz / survey type of thing, so I made it into a digital version - go ahead and try it out! How does your sewing space score? Anything on the quiz surprise you? Would you add anything? Let me know in the comments below! :)
If the survey does not load (there have been some technical difficulties), you can also find it here

  2. This was an awesome experience for me, and beyond priceless. I feel compelled to share why . . . I recently moved back into my mother's house at 35 yrs old, having been on my own since I was 16. It's - uh, we - been interesting. However, I have a 250+ sq ft basement with utility carpeting, a full bath, tons of light, some windows, and access to the adjacent "storage room" which contains plenty of furniture that's excellent for setting up a sewing room - a 4 person 34" high rectangular "starter" dining table for cutting, any number of prefab shelving and cube storage units waiting to be assembled/ baskets and boxes and giant Tupperware and tons of leftover tension rods, wall hooks, desk organizers, filing cabinets - and an empty closet. Three months, and all I have assembled is the cutting table (my back was killing me). All this space, and my stash still packed in boxes! I am so undeserving! I am going to go assemble some shelves and hang some keyboards and drag out some filing cabinets and make it up to the sewing Gods, right now! No excuses! I cannot believe I did not realize how lucky I was until I took this quiz; with each question I became more and more ashamed of myself. Shame on me! And thank you!

    1. That is awesome! I really love that this quiz can show the best possibilities and the worst - after taking it with my current set-up, I took it as if I was at my old place... it was bad - lol. Sometimes we don't realize how good we have it! So glad you are motivated to use your awesome space :)
