Now that it's obvious I'm sewing a lot and am going to keep on sewing a lot, I decided to finally get myself a proper sewing table. I had been using an old desk but gave that to my son to use as a desk and so I was using a folding table that bounced (note: not a good thing when embroidering a label with your machine).
Stopped at JoAnn's last Friday and found this one, on sale for $99, usually $229.
Lucky me, my son is a whiz at putting together the kind of furniture that arrives in pieces in a box.
If I take the sewing machine off the wing, and place it on top of the table, the wing folds in nice and neat to make a tidy looking cabinet. Some people may sew with the machine on the large table part, and the wing out to hold a book or even a serger, but I like having the big table space available for pinning and arranging.
Here you can see that there is a large table section that can be easily folded up if I pull the table away from the wall, which is easy because it's on nifty wheels. When I need to run something big through the machine, I will do that, placing the machine on the large table surface.
The project on the table is a Downy Quilt for Kids. I needed a break in the cutting out of a full sized Diagonal Madness. Madness is right.
