Thanks so much for measuring for me! Everyone has been so helpful! I brought one embroidery machine into the computer room today and put it on a counter top there. That helped give me a better idea of having a lower counter top. I'm going to go with 25" as my chairs are adjustable and the machines are all quite high from the thread plates to the machine bottoms. I hope you get your sewing center soon! It makes such a difference to have everything "ready to go!" Now that hubby is on a roll, he's going to put in wire shelving in the closet, too! It's so exciting to make positive changes!
