Just in case you were wondering what my workstation looks like, its very simple. I only take up a corner right now in the kitchen area, and I have everything on a folding table. If company were to come over, its really no problem leaving it where it is, but I can easily fold up the table and store everything. All of my fabric, ribbon, and other items are in the closet nearby. This is really all that is required. I like to keep it here because my daughter plays in this area since the living room is right there, too. I can keep an eye on whats going on while still being able to work. There is my cat, too. Shes almost always in that area. She likes to sit on the ironing board and watch the birds out back!
