Comments: Sewing Table - revisited

Wonderful table! I have a question: how far is it from the front edge of the table to the needle? I have a Regal cabinet that sets the needle area only 4-5" from the front edge, and I've seen some custom tables that recommend setting it 11" from the edge. Seems like a lot, but maybe not. Yours looks to be a good bit more than 4-5". Thanks!

Thanks, Jane Ann.

It is a great table. I only wish I could evenly split my time between sewing, quilting, and knitting to give it its due, but alas I am a knitting fiend... for now.

The distance from the needle to the table edge is 11.25". So yay! It meets the recommendations. It is very comfortable to sew at, and my only desired change would be more table to the left of the machine. But I'm sure that's a common wish for any crafter - more table space.

I just got the same exact table! One question.... kinda silly I suppose... but, how do I go about attaching my machine to that hinged shelf, to be able to "hide it"? (Yeah... I am blonde... so it is probably pretty obvious, and just elluding me! HA!) Anyway, if you know, could you share? I'd like to set mine up like that! Thanks!

Is this sewing machine table a commercial one that can be bought? Do you know who the manufacturer is or where one can be bought?

Hi Nanc,

Can you tell me where you got this sewing table? It looks like real wood.

Hi! My name is Carole. I don't have a site up yet but I'm working on one. It will have a place on it for sewing spaces. Places where a sewer can go and create or do whatever they want. Anyway, I would like to put your table on it...can I put a link to your pics? Please let me know as I wouldn't do it if I didn't have your permission. Sorry I don't have a URL yet (but I will let you know when I do). If you want to know more about me you can visit my blog at Thanks so much for taking time to read this, Carole

The compartment under the seat cushion is probably for thread storage. My sewing stool is very similar but without a back. It holds plenty of thread and keeps it safe from dust and sun-fading.

I just love this sewing cabinet you have.It stores everything away neatly and I love the wood!
I just got a new sewing machine for Christmas.I have not sewn in about 15 years, so i'ts like riding a bicycle.I also got got a drill, sander, and saw for xmas.
I found and old discarded wooden cabinet that a television was inside.The wood was too beautiful to see thrown out to the recycling, so I thought I may fashion it somehow into a sewing cabinet for my new machine.We shall se how that turns out.
