    Table / Cabinet for Viking Ruby

    I need suggestions for a sewing table that will fit my Ruby that will not cost an arm & a leg.

    I love my SewEZ - I got it for my Viking Topaz 20. They come with the cutout for your machine, so it sits down into it for sewing/quilting and I got the extra wood insert to set the machine on top to do the embroidery. Not sure what you consider an arm and a leg. It was $300.00 but it is wonderful. And I got it so fast - it was less than a week from the time I placed the order on-line.

    That sounds OK

    There is a table called Gidget 11 at the LQS I go to and it is $179. Very nice and would be great for a Ruby (I have a Ruby, myself). The table folds flat enough to slide under a bed for storage. I looked at it very closely and it may be part do DDs' Xmas this year. I have actually toyed with the idea of getting one for myself to keep downstairs (my sewing room is upstairs).

    I have looked at the Gidget II, but there is no room to the left of the machine. How would we hold any quilt up?

    For the Ruby, you could use any table or desk. Because its one of those embroidery machines that you don't have to take the arm off to sew I normally left it on so it would be a pain to have it inset. I now have a Diamond Deluxe and the same goes, since you can park the arm when you sew I never take the arm off. I'm assuming you do use the embroidery part as well. I'm still amazed at the number of people on here alone that have said they dont use it. The first promise I made to myself when I spent out that kind of money was I was going to learn and use it. I did for the Ruby and still do for my Diamond. I've even started FMQ with the diamond since its so easy. Decide if you want to keep your machine with arm intact most of the time or take the arm off and use it that way. It will help decide what size of desk you need to have.

    Sorry, I was not thinking about using it when I had a large quilt top...only when piecing blocks or embroidering. Both my daughters say they don't sew because they have no space in their apts...thought it would be perfect for them. I also think it might be nice to put my serger on. Hopefully, you will find something that works perfectly for you!
