    Looks like it would only do straight stitch.
    I would also love that table!

    mgm- don't even talk to me about where the cars are. My car hasn't seen the inside of the garage...well, maybe ONE time. He's always got some project going in there. Usually it involves fixing someone ELSE's vehicle...
    He's got this whole thing built on casters so he can wheel it around/outside if he needs to, and the machine is also on wheels and slides right into that space. The middle section will store his fabric rolls/bolts.

    That machine isn't really meant to sew lighter fabrics. I had the same set in my shop for 20+ years.
    It will sew it, but it won't like it...lol It may chew on it a bit too. Now if you wanted to sew a few layers of leather or vinyl and most upholstery materials this one would work.

    Kinda looks like a Consew or possibly a Juki.

    It wouldn't work anyhow, that type of machine loves vinyl, leather and canvas better.

    Besides with the sewing oil swimming about in a tray underneath to keep the machine lubricated. Y'all would have a cow if it got on your quilt.....just sayin'

    I used to have a singer much like this, but not an upholstery machine. I loved my commercial machine for piecing, I could really go to town on strip piecing.

    I was going to suggest this very thing. You won't know for sure unless you try!

    I love that table! Wish I had one that large. If you can't use that machine, I hope your husband will build a table for the machine you use.
