(I know the machines look excessive. One of the extras is an embroidery machine and the other is a serger. The third machine is actually my daughter's sewing machine. With the closet doors open, we are able to use that desk top to sew on as well.
It works great if I need two machines for a project or if we both want to sew at the same time.
We rarely have overnight guests, and family won't mind my craft stuff.
With our son no longer living in state, when they visit I need a place for them to sleep.
I also took time to work in the ends for the afghan for the couch. I like the blue with it. Now I still have to do my throw pillows.
I hemmed my daughter's jeans and I am glad to say there's no noticeable difference between the factory work and mine.
