    Does anyone use the Arrow Gidget sewing machine/craft table. I am considering getting one and was hoping for some feedback or is there something else I should look at. I have a sewing cabinet, but my machine sits on top of it not flush. Thanks in advance.

    Your machine sits on top, there is a lip so machine won't slide off and it tips the machine so you can see the presser foot much better. I know this isn't a table, just a suggestion.

    I have my main machine in a Horn cabinet, but I then bought a Sewezi table which works in a similar way. The machine sits down flush with the surface, just as in the cabinet, but it doesn't drop down below because it doesn't have a lift. I bought it to be able to fold it and take it to workshops where everyone envies me. I now have three different inserts so that I can use different machines in it. The latest one was for my white Featherweight, which will be going with me to a workshop in a couple of weeks time.

    I have an Arrow table, not the Gidget but very much like it and I love it. I use it in front of my regular sewing table when I'm quilting a quilt and whenever I need to sew any place else. All my machines will fit in it. It was one of the best things I have bought to sew with.
