    i probably should have asked before i ordered it, but i just did. it's supposed to be here 2/7. it got pretty good reviews from customers and i couldn't turn it down for the price and cheap shipping.

    anyone have one?

    I don't have 1, but need a table also. I looked at the site and read the reviews..I'm with you, I would have ordered it also. Now, I think I'll wait to see what you think... :D

    It looks pretty rugged, and easy enough to attatch casters to if you wanted to make it moveable.

    My freind bought one last year at AQS show. She loves it! However she paid alot more for it. She thought it would be great for traveling.
    I think I want one. I guess you get it fit to your machine. I know she has a Bernina.

    Hi, I was taking a quilting class at "The Gathering" in Nashua N.H. last November and 4 of the women in one of my classes came in with this table. I believe they also paid more than the $99.00 listed but they all loved it, didn't seem to mind carrying it around and setting it up for whatever classes they were taking. I think they said each table is set up for your particular machine (how the machine sits in each table) I could be mistaken though. Enjoy, I'm thinking about maybe getting one too. Molly 39

    the table arrived a day early (on the 6th, i had ordered it on the 1st, i believe).

    it's a really nice table. i have it set up in the dining room by the window. my machine fits in it pretty well. it's the same height as our dining room table (the height of the actual table platform is not adjustable). there is no assembly. just take it out of the box and lock the legs. very portable, too.

    with the ability to nest the machine, it makes it the perfect height now. there's a chain underneath that you use to adjust the depth of the 'nest' and i was able to get it perfectly flush with my needle plate. i thought the gap around the machine would bother me, but it really hasn't (i worked on a project most of the day yesterday).

    it's definitely worth the $109 (if it's still on sale, includes $10 shipping). i got an e-mail that if i referred anyone, they get some kind of a discount. PM me if you're interested, it says it's a $10 discount.

    I picked up my table at Sears, believe it or not and I think it was 99.00 too. I love it and I can take it down when not in use!

    I have a Horn of America that takes over a 10x12 foot room... I love it, but wish I had something smaller sometimes.

    I forgot to mention it weighs over 200 lbs and will take 3 men and a boy to move it when the time comes...

    I too have a Horn Cabinet and I agree you need huge muscles to move the thing!! but I love it.. I really miss it right now have missed it for the last 3 1/2 years as it was put in U-Haul Storage Unit when I went back to university.. I have since finsihed school over 2 years now, and I hope to get a house of my own within a year (if the money gods are in my favour). I will get my Horn cabinet back and I cant' WAIT to sit to it again cause I loooooove my Horn Cabinet!

    Hi Henry - yes, i'm really happy with it. i've moved it up to my hobby room and added a couple of other tables that we had to make a large quilting table. i just finished quilting a full size with my domestic janome using this setup.

    you might want to plan to get the plastic insert made to fit around your machine. google dreamworld

    go for it!

    i might have to think about one of those small tables for my quilting retreats. Being only 5 feet tall, by the time I raise my chair high enough to sit comfortably at the banquet table at retreat, my feet don't really touch the ground! Not as much of a problem at home because I grabbed a wonderful desk out of the trash when my gym was remodeling, so it shorter than the banquet tables!
