As I am a person who almost always has her sewing machine set up in the kitchen, I came up with an idea. Has anyone ever considered having a real space cut out of your kitchen counter for your sewing machine? One that a person would be able to lower the machine when done sewing. Sort of like an old-fashioned sewing cabinet.
I just think it would be the niftiest thing! Of course, one would have to be willing to give up that much cupboard space.
