    Seeking Advice on Sewing Cabinet

    I's like some advice on what sewing cabinets to look for. I want something that my Bernina can sit in flush with the surface and have as much room as possible (within reasonable $$$) to quilt. I may not do full sized quilts, but my attempt to quilt my Lil Twister Valentine Heart wallhanging has been quite frustrating. I used iron on batting for the first time I felt it may it stiffer than what I'm used to. I rolled the sides with bicycle clips but I still didn't have the ease I needed. Even with needle down, every time I adjusted, you could tell. I have an extended bed for my machine, but the clips got caught on the edge and that made a mess. After two borders, I stopped and ripped it all out. I need a better sewing surface. Currently I am using a hollow core door that has drawers added with pipe legs that are the correct height for sewing. I am open to recommendations as I start my quest. Thanks much!

    Here is the desk I bought for my Bernina - I ordered it with 1 drop down tray on the right hand side of the desk.

    It comes in several sizes, but the tray is the perfect size for the Bernina with its table extension.

    I know several people who have Tracey's tables... and love them. They are more affordable than many .

    I ordered a desk from this site and was impressed with the quality and how sturdy it is.
    The Bernina fits perfect in the drop down tray. You can order the tray in the middle or on either side of the table.

    I have a Bernina 440 and I got a Horn cabinet. It fits the machine perfectly and I just love it. It has a large drop down front to the table and an extra piece that goes over the drawers on the left side. It has plenty of room to lay out a quilt and I use it for cutting too, when I'm not quilting. I got it from my Bernina dealer. Someone had ordered it and then wanted a different color, so it was a good deal for me.
    Let peace begin with me and you.
