    Don'tcha just love the resourcefulness of we quilters? I've long drooled over those way-too-pricey sewing tables and while I'm happy to have my plexi extension table, this goes way past that - and for a mere fraction of the cost.

    Give this video a look-see at: Cheap sewing table, etc. at:

    That was very interesing. I may have to invest in one of those tables to take to my retreat. I like the idea that the height is adjustable. I have a table currently that my machinist husband cut the legs down to the right height. The only question I have about the foam is how does she get to her bobbincase?

    I saw this same video at YouTube and I made one! It works great.
    The only thing I use that she didn't mention is silicone spray on top of the clear vinyl, now and then. Otherwise it creates alot of static from the fabric moving around (at least the clear vinyl shower curtain that I used does. I don't know if the clear vinyl off a large roll would do the same).
    I love my sewing table now.

    I have a top loading bobbin so no problem. I love the top loading, no problems with it and so easy to change.

    I don't know about that website, but on Youtube there are two parts to the video. In one of them, she shows how she cut out the section in front of her bobbin case so she can easily remove just that small section of the foam table to replace the bobbin.

    I went to a garage sale and found an old gate leg table that when opened gives me plenty of room. I might try the foam build up, that would make it even easier for sewing anything.
    You all have great ieas.
