    I've decided to just live with it. I've rigged up an extension table-kind of thing so I can quilt. The side desk is too close to the other desk to put the sewing machine there and sit under the needle. The legs can't be cut. I'm glad we didn't cut into the desk top, because we'd have the same problems I had with the one we rigged up yesterday (which is mostly due to the sewing machine design). Thanks to everyone's suggestions! They were all good, just not practical or pertaining to me!

    I have a partners desk that we converted for the machine we cut a hole in the top using a jig saw make sure the hole is centered over the drawer and large enough for the cord that sticks out on the side. the machine will set in the drawer without problems and you just have to lift the front to change the bobbin. I love this setup good luck

    Could this work?

    Will the Chair in the picture raise up to the necessary height? If so, you can put a box under the desk to put you feet on for comfortable sitting. That is something we did at work years ago.

    Watch this video from you tube. It's a way to convert your desk without actually modifying it. Good luck!

    That's brilliant! If I didn't have a quilting table, I would be doing this tomorrow.
