    We were invited to a friend’s home for Thanksgiving. I made this reversible table runner for a hostess gift. Autumn on one side. The rest of the year on the other. All from fabrics I had in my stash.

    Here’s another one for our Houston family members. This twin-sized is for a young boy. I used scraps and my stash. I really like how this one came out. It’s ready to go to a longarmer.

    I just gifted this baby quilt to a brand-new great-niece, Hazel Mae. Mommy and daddy love it and it’s already draped across the crib rail. It’s my own design, using several different blocks I liked and just played around with layouts.

      Deborah Thompson I have 2 cabinets designated for craft supplies. I only buy what I need to finish a project or two. Where there's a will there's a way. If you can't use what you have before you leave, maybe you can donate it to a fellow quilter or maybe a women's shelter...  more Hide 1 Reply

      Linda & Steve Dean I am taking out the sofa and putting in my Horn quilting cabinet.  I plan to put my fabric in those bags that you use a vacuum to take out all the air.  Then I will store in basement of motorhome.  We plan to live in our MH until we retire ...  more Hide 1 Reply

      Deborah Thompson I do all of my quilts at the kitchen table. We have a free standing one, so I can move it if I need to. All my supplies go in my craft cabinet, and the machine has a dedicated place in the closet. But....I mostly make puppy or baby blankets, not full sized ones. :) Hide 6 Replies

        Kat Holland I have the typical booth dinette...not good for large projects:(. Im thinking about doing a remodel...putting in a free standing dining set. I do machine embroidery also. Im only doing small projects now also!
      • Kat Holland
        Deborah Thompson I've had both set ups and I love the free standing table. Much more freedom for doing projects. And, when you want to sit 4 people around a table for games and such. It makes it easy to pull the table out to the middle of the floor and put people on 4 sid...  more

        Kat Holland Im really thinking about dumping the dinette and putting in a table/chairs. I've been doing some searching online for videos from other RVers who have done the same thing.
      • Kat Holland
        Kat Holland Plus my embroidery machine is large..no room for anything else once it's set up!
      • Kat Holland
        Deborah Thompson You may find some advice in the Why didn't I Think Of That group, or the Fulltime RVers group. Ours had the freestanding table when we bought it.

        Kat Holland Thank you..I will check it out Next RV will have freestanding for sure :)

        Kat Holland Lol..I like the "ran away from home" :) I will check out the site. My embroidery machine is big and takes up a lot of space...so that table might just do the trick. Thanks:)

    MarshHawk :
    I don't know if this has been discussed, but do you bring your sewing machine on the road with you? I'm wondering how many amps a sewing machine uses these days. I wouldn't bring my big Bernina, but my older Viking (1998-ish) would be light enough to brin...  more

      Charlie and Marcie Most certainly!  I take my Baby Lock Decorator's Choice and my BL Imagine serger. I cut out "kits" before hitting the road and take my bags I pack for retreats. If only I could figure out a way to bring the stash and longarm! :)
    • MarshHawk
      Sue Hoffman I bring my Featherweight. No problems. If I'm only working on applique work I don't bring my machine but since we travel 5-6 weeks at a time, I usually bring it just in case.

      wandering Jackie Sewing machines don't draw many amps but they need AC current to run. I live full time in my RV and take my machine with me always. When i am boondocking and want to sew ( my second favorite hobby) I just fire up my Honda 2000 and go with it. 
    • MarshHawk
      TomandMillie'sBigAdventure My wife brings her Featherweight. When Boondocking, I have had it hooked up to an inverter with the 160 watt portable solar collectors and after an afternoon of sewing, the batteries were fully charged. Works great! I was even watching a DVD during that time.
    • MarshHawk
      Lee & Donna Vance (RVFootloose) I use my machine when we are boondocking using our solar energy with a pure sine wave inverter. It doesn't draw much power and I sew in the afternoons after the batteries have had a change to recharge.
