We also took down the spare bed and turned my extra room into a quilting room for me. Once the mattress is gone, it's will be perfect. Plus I have my computer handy for movies, music or looking up quilting tips/tutorials. I just need a small cutting table but I can use my kitchen table for now. There are also a couple places in town i.e.. Stash Lounge where you can pay an hourly rate to use their large cutting tables. I have a few projects that require tons of cutting so I may have to hit that space up soon. Sometimes there is just not enough room on my kitchen table!
