    Quilting Tables

    I have seen tutorials where the person has a machine that sits flush with the table. Then when you FMQ the quilt is spread out flat, not hanging off the sides. Where can you get those tables?

    I got it from my Janome dealer. I assume those tables are made specially for Janome
    but there are other tables for other machines too. I love my table and if I get another
    machine it will definitely be inside a table.

    There are Arrow brand tables that work like that. I think Joann's sells them as we'll as other places including online. They aren't super expensive.

    I have a Horn brand cabinet with the drop-down shelf. There are many other brands available. You can also buy the lift mechanism if you want to make your own cabinet. I like to have my sewing machine recessed in this way for all sewing, not just free motion quilting, since it puts the machine at the right height for me. I have seen nice sewing cabinets with the drop-down shelf available on Craigslist at very good prices.

    Quilt in a Day has a tutorial for making one from an old kitchen table. There are also videos on YouTube showing several ways to make them cheaply. If cost is a concern, you might start there.

    I bought a sew ezi table and it comes with an insert that is custom cut to fit your machine. I love it. I bought some cheap tables at Walmart to prop around the machine when I actually quilt.

    I'm getting ready to cut a hole in a desk we bought on craigslist for next to nothing. It has a keyboard drawer and that will make the perfect shelf for the machine. I may have to add some wood blocks or something to get the machine to be level with the bed, but the price was right.

    Here are Youtube links that show how you can make one inexpensively:
