Yes, that would be ideal, but it just isn’t the reality for most of us. The truth is, many sewists are squeezing their hobby into tight spaces and we’re here to help you fit everything you love about quilting into whatever space you have to make creating a pleasure again.

All sorts of things going on in the sewing room. I don’t know that so much activity does me any favors, but so it goes.
