    Sew Perfect Table - do you have one?

    Does anyone have a "Sew Perfect Table"? It looks like a really nice sturdy table. You can also get a side extension table, rear extension table, and other accesories. Kind of expensive. If you have one, how do you like it? Sturdy and no vibrations? Easy to adjust height? Have you ever seen it at a quilt show?

    Never seen this sewing table. I have a sewezi table I love and take to retreats. Comes with a case and has wheels so it's easy to move.

    I have never seen these either but they look good and sturdy, the only thing I would like them to be bigger in length, I need a big table.

    Does anyone else know anything about this Sew Perfect Table? If not, what is your sewing set up and what other tables are out there? Yayaquilts has the sewezi, so I am checking that out also.

    I recently got this table from www.epicofficefurniture.com . It is 30 inches by 60 inches with a drop shelf on the right hand side (you must call to specify shelf position) , which gives you lots of table space for quilting and cutting.

    Here's a link to the thread I posted

    Looks like a nice table. I maybe be looking for a table in the future. Right now I am very confortable with my current tables.

    My mom just got that table from Epic Office furniture. I think it'll be good, if we can ever get it together. The screws they sent are too big to attach the modesty panel (which connects the legs together for stability). I'm concerned that the short screws aren't sufficient to keep the top and legs stable over time with the vibration of the machine. We'll see... I'm also thinking about a SewPerfect table for my heavy (40lbs) machine, so I'd love to hear from owners about stability, vibration, ease of assembly, quality (any rough edges?), etc.

    My husband didn't say anything about the screws that came with mine and he's usually pretty picky about stuff like that.
    So far my table is performing perfectly and does not vibrate at all - it is very sturdy (and heavy).

    My Epic Office table is working beautifully. Our son put it together for me with his electric screwdriver.

    I was able to purchase Epic table right on-line. There was a box to click to specify right-hand drop. I made sure on my final order sheet that it was correct before I clicked. It arrived as specified and I love it.

    Oh good to know Polly! The CS girl I ordered from probably fixed that because she tried to do it online and realized there was no box for that feature.

    I don't have the sew perfect but checked out reviews, and this lady gives quite a good comparison on her blog. http://lulubloom.wordpress.com/2011/06/23/ergonomics/

    Is the Epic Office table height adjustable?

    No, it's not height adjustable - it is 29 inches high I think, mine sits on carpet so it is kinda hard to measure.

    I bought one some years ago when I saw the tables at a quilt show. It has paid for itself many times over. It fits in my car trunk and stays there so I always have my own sewing space handy.
    Got fabric?

    That would be handy if the hubby doesn't take it over for his tools and such.

    Do you all have adjustable chairs to help get a more comfortable sewing position?

    Those sure look like the industrial ones our sample makers had at Jones New York. They are sturdy and heavy - no vibrations. But if I were to choose I'd go for the Epic Office table.

    I have an Arrow 601 Gidget sewing table. It's about 20x40 inches and very sturdy. it has an adjustable cut out for the machine to set into. I paid $110 including shipping. I have two of them, one for my Janome 6500 and one for my Babylock Decorator's Choice. My husband had to cut the holes a bit larger for these two slightly over sized machines.

    Modifying Gidget I table for Janome 6600 (ATTN Wintersewer!)

    Back in 2011, Wintersewer said that her husband had cut the hole in the Gidget I sewing table so that it would fit the slightly larger Janome 6500 -- Wintersewer, if you see this, can you elaborate on how he accomplished this?! Thanks! -- Helen (new to group)

    Wintersewer here! He put masking tape on the table and drew the line he wanted to cut. He only had to cut the end as the hole was wide enough. Then he used a jigsaw to enlarge the hole. It only took a few minutes.

    Yes, I also have a Sew Perfect table. I've had it for about 5 yrs. or so. I just ordered the back extension table to attach for my serger. I wanted to make sure that the ext. wouldn't vibrate when I ran the serger on it. The store's owner said it shouldn't so I'm taking his word on it. But I really love the table, it's very heavy, doesn't vibrate or shake at all when I run my sewing machine and very comfortable to sew on. Have fun with whichever table you decide on.

    Looks like a nice sturdy table. I have never seen one before. I have a SEWZI also but that is made to be portable so not really comparable.

    Those are Industrial Sewing machine tables, that are having there tops altered to fit domestic machines. The tables are rock solid as they are designed to keep high speed machines, that are solid metal and heavy from vibrating through the floor, I have one for my industrial machine.

    I think they are overpriced, industrial machines tables can often be found free or at very low cost, just start looking on your local craigslist. If you are handy at all it would be super easy to cut the top to fit your machine.
