    I've been thinking about buying a large (24x24) acrylic sewing table for my one machine but wondered if any of you have one, do you like it, and is it worth the $100 price tag?

    I have one for each of both my machines. I love the tables. I don't use it as much at home since I bought a desk that my machine sinks into but still use it when I take the machine out to other places. It is a nice table for quilting. It also makes a great "light box" just place a light bulb under the acrylic and you have a lite table.

    I have one and I absolutely love it, for all the reasons mentioned above.

    Here is where I found mine: http://www.sewingmates.com/

    It is adjustable so that it will fit all my machines. Granted, they are expensive, but I think it's been worth every penny.

    YES!!!

    I have one for my Pfaff and could not believe how much my overall quilting improved (1/4" seams, appliqué, and FMQ).

    The extra room really provides the support that is often needed to get the best results.

    By the way, I bought mine off eBay.

    I ordered one of these tables from a sewing center on July 25. I was told it would take 2 weeks because it was a "custom" order. All of these tables are considered "custom". Today almost 1 month later I still do not have it. Trust me I call a couple of times each week. Last week I was told it is being "cut" and I should have it shortly. I will never order anything from this sewing center again. You can order them on line with faster service. I'm stuck in limbo on my order. I have a feeling it is just "sitting" somewhere. I'm sure I'm considered an annoying customer. Even when it gets here, I have to travel to pick it up. Yep, I'm annoyed. I want my table.

    When I made a sewing table, I bought an acrylic insert for it. The company was very good to work with, and many years later I still love it. They also make the tables with legs that you are asking about. I had one of them for a Janome I had for a while, and liked sewing on it. The extra room was great. http://stores.homestead.com/DreamWorld/StoreFront.bok
