    Question - Do any of you have the SewEzi portable sewing table?

    I just recently bought a new Viking Topaz 20. My sewing room doesn't have the space to put another desk or table in it. My cutting table actually folds up to become a free standing full length mirror. Love it, but would not work for using a sewing machine. So in looking for a portable style table I found the SewEzi table. It doesn't appear any local store carries it, so thought I would ask if any of you have it and what you think of it. I would definitely need the insert. The table needs to be very sturdy since it is going to hold a rather heavy sewing/embroidery machine.

    Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you!

    I have a small sewing room and a Bernina 440QE. I got the table for its size, portablility, and adaptability to other machines. I love it. Now my sewing is at the proper level and there is enough room around it to work easily. If I was free motion quilting the top is slick and the fabric moves easily. It came very very well packed and I put the few parts together easily.

    I am so happy I made this decision and have used it every day for weeks. I did go to Paducah to test drive its height and make sure of the size, etc. Bought it there and they shipped to me in two weeks. Good email shipping updates.

    I have one with two inserts-one for my Janome 6600 and the other for my Featherweight. I LOVE it! They're pricey, but seem to be made really well. I believe every single person in my quilt guild also has one, so they're pretty popular.

    I also have one and love it! I use it with a Bernina 440. I do wish it was a bit shorter. I'm 5'2" with short legs. I solved the height by building a box to set my foot pedal on. I could sew ok, but it was difficult to use the foot pedal to raise my needle.

    I have it and I love it! It enables me to sew anywhere, and I take it to all quilting classes. It is the proper height for sewing and prevents back aches. Love that they make an insert to fit your machine so that you have a flat surface.

    Know several people who have one and they love them. They take the tables to sewing and quilting retreats. It is on my wish list.

    I first saw the SewEzi table at a quilting workshop a couple of years ago. Came right home and ordered it online. It has been great! My sewing space is limited and the SewEzi is both portable and affordable and has a small footprint. I have two inserts, one for the Bernina and one for the Juki. No wobble with the Juki doing FMQ.
    This table is sturdy and easy to put together. It should serve your needs well.

    you might check out the sew perfect tables. I have one and I love it because it is so sturdy, and the height is adjustable so it fits me perfectly. Prices are very reasonable too.

    I love my SewEZi table! I take it to sewing retreats - it is so easy to pack up and move. It is also my main sewing table at home. It is sturdy and doesn't "bounce" when sewing, even with the "pedal to the metal"!

    Mine is a Sew Perfect table & it was just what the Dr. ordered for my FMQ class & retreats. It folds up & is out of the way here at home. Nice.

    No but I have the Arrow Gidget II sewing table and love it. They can make an insert for you. Just tell them the name and model of your machine. Leah Day also uses it. Here's a link:http://www.sewingtableshop.com/sewin...wingtable.cfml. Here's Leah Day's video on it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3KgDrRt3sU and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0Zm1ZhUSDE; http://www.sewingtableshop.com/sewin...FeEDQAodlya0iw

    Do any of you know how much each of these tables weigh? I was only able to find the weight of the SewEz table (23lb).

    I had the Gidget and HATED it. got the Sew Ezi and I LOVE it. I am not incredibly picky but the Gidget shook and didn't come with an insert. It was worse than using the dining room table. Sew Ezi is great with the insert. I think I might even get the extra (extension type) table that they offer for sale. I also got the Light box insert item but haven't needed to use it yet.

    This is another item I hope to see at the Minnesota Quilt show in Rochester this month, I saw it at another show some years ago and from what I'm reading hear, it would have been a smart buy!

    So, what was it that you didn't like about the Gidget?

    I have 2 SewEzi Tables. I was going to buy the extension table, but for $50 more, I got an insert for another one of my machines. I have a Viking Designer 1 in one of them and a Pfaff Quilt Espression in the other. If I want to use one of them as an extension table, I can just remove the machine & set it under the table. Very sturdy and folds up & has rollers to take to retreats.

    I bought the SewEzi cause it looked great at the show... when I got it home, I wondered, what was I thinking? Then I used it and I'm so glad I own it. It's a space saver and just the right height. I have a Viking D1 and use it for sewing only. I think the table might vibrate too much for embroidery. I never tried it with the embroidery unit attached.

    I have used the SewEzi many times to do embroidery. Of course, it has to sit on top. I have not had any trouble with shaking, wobbling, etc.

    Wow - I ordered the table on-line on 6/11/12 after 7pm and it came today! Haven't unpacked it yet because I was out most of the day and too tired to do anything when I got home. But such turn-around it incredible to me.

    Any knee lift issues with Janome 6600 and Sewezi table?

    I read on a blog that the knee lift on the Janome 6600 knocks into the SewEzi table's leg. Does anyone have any experience with this? I really want to order the SewEzi, but I worry about this because I use my Janome knee lift constantly. Thoughts?
