    Extension Sewing tables

    I see in the photos, many extension tables added to your machines. Do you like them and do you consider them worth the cost for your custom ordering?

    I have one for my Juki, I love it. I think it is a Sew Dream or something like that name. It makes quilting so much nicer.

    If you don't have a table where your machine sits down into a well, or if you take your machine to classes, I think they are a " must have"! There is less drag on your fabric, and just makes sewing so much more enjoyable.

    I used to use mine more. Now I keep my Pfaff at home more. I adjusted to not using the extension table toward the end of my group sewing.

    I don't even use one for my FW.
    Have fun quilting! If it isn't fun, you will miss a lot.

    If I didn't have one, I'd want to put my machine down in a cabinet. For sure.

    The problem I had was the quilt caught on the edge of the table when free motion quilting.

    My Elna Quilter's Dream came with one and as far as I'm concerned, they're virtually useless if you're working on a large quilt, a small wall hanging, pot holders, etc., would be okay to use it but that's about all. I've had this machine for about 7 years and I've used the extension table maybe 4 or 5 times.
