For some time I’ve been considering moving my sewing room into my daughter’s old room. That room has more windows and is brighter and has better ventilation in the summer. The main reason I haven’t (aside from just being lazy,) is that it has deep carpeting and I didn’t want to take it up.
My house has hardwood floors and the floor of my sewing room is an absolute disaster after years of pins in the floor. My eyes aren’t as good as they used to be and I think I would sew more in the other room that gets more sunlight.
Here’s my question: What can I put on the floor to protect the wood, but will allow me to clean up the pins, etc. easily, after taking up the carpet/?
Speaking of picking up pins…I bought a gigantic magnet on a long handle at Home Depot and thought i would never get to the check out counter! I’m serious..every time I came close to a metal shelf, or objet, it would grab hold and I would have to “rassle” it off. I’m easily entertained because I was laughing really hard by the time I got to the check out counter. I have the same trouble with it at home.
