This book has great ideas! The suggestions on table and chair height are particularly helpful. Many of the suggestions are, as the title suggests, "dream sewing spaces" -- what you'd get if you had an unlimited sewing/decorating budget. However, they are fun to look at, and you can glean ideas from them. A variety of styles -- from white, ultramodern designs to rooms furnished almost entirely with antiques -- are portrayed, so you can see just how many options there are in sewing room decoration and organization. Several of the rooms pictured belong to ladies who are well-known in the sewing world.read more

A seriously well-thought out book with lots of great ideas! I was looking for inspiration and practical tips for my new craft room, and I really found this book very useful in the planning phase. The author has taken a very holistic, thorough and realistic look at what goes into a craft room. Technically, the language is very clear, and the frequent use of floor plans and photos makes it easy to visualise the finished result. Thanks for a great book and some great ideas!read more
