    I wanna sewing table!!!!

    I need a sewing table! I'm tired of setting things up on the kitchen table every time I want to sew. Any recommendations on sewing tables you've purchased or built?

    I have a table that my father made. It is 30"wide by 5' long and I have put risers under the legs to make it taller. Sometimes I decide I like it at regular table height and take the risers out. I definitely like having the height adjustable. I keep my sewing machines on it and also a small plastic hobby chest what contains all of my thread.

    I have a Perfexxion system which is perfect for me...I have my embroidery machine on one end, my Janome 6600P in the middle and a couple more machines on the other end. Downside is that it's rather pricey...upside is that I needed the space.
    I have also got a couple of friends who have the Gidget (spelling??) table and they really like those. So I guess it just depends on what you need...
    Good luck!

    If it's just for sewing, the plastic folding tables are handy to have around. I got one from Office Depot that has legs that will adjust every 2", which is nice. It was more expensive than the ones I saw elsewhere, but on those, there weren't many height options with the legs. There are some portable ones with inserts that will allow your machine to sit down inside it, making it easier for quilting. They are small though and you'd probably need to put it up against another table for quilting. If you are looking for a furniture type of table, there are many, some pretty expensive. I saw one at my LQS that was around $1800.

    There are a bunch on this site. I haven't purchased a table there, but I think I have purchased feet for my machines there.

    I have a older cabinet that did have a sewing machine with it. It was a 60's cabinet so my husband took out machine and made a cutout to fit my newer machine and now I have a nice cabinet with three drawers I like it.

    Check out your local Goodwill, Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity for a decent kitchen table, preferably square or rectangle. Cut a hole the size of your machine where you want to sit. Build a box, attach on the bottom side to hold your machine (be sure to cut a hole for the cords). Add risers and you've got a very inexpensive sewing table.

    The best investment I ever made was a SewEzi portable sewing table. It allows my machine to be at the proper height for my arms and wrists and I can sew for hours without strain. It has interchangeable inserts for different machines and is slick so material slides across it. I can set it up anywhere and it fits in my car for taking to retreats. I waited until i could test it out at a show and it was sent to me in a very study shipping carton. I love it.

    Before i used a office supply store table that did not have adjustable legs. The machine was 2-3 inches too high and it was uncomfortable to sew with only the extension table. Doable and I did use it for years and it only cost less than $40 new. Now it is my cutting table and the extension table for the Sewezi.

    My first sewing table was a desk. It had three drawers on the left side, making it ideal for me to sit with the machine on the right side. Of course, through the years, I have needed more space.....

    Wal-Mart on line carries this table for $119.00 with free shipping to your store. It also comes in pine. I have 2 of them. I bought one and then my Sister decided she didn't want hers anymore and had her Hubby build her one so I took hers. My BIL put a hole in one of them so I could set my machine down in it. If you want to look on WM's site, just put sewing table in the search and they will come up.
