    Calling all SewEzi Table users:

    I have a SewEzi table and absolutely love it...all but one thing...There isnít anywhere at the right corner to put scissors, pincushion, purple thang, whatever is needed... Yes, there is a little round indention that isnít of much use. They advertise a plastic swinging tray but I didnít order it because I could just envision my breaking it off or tipping my table over when walking around it and getting it caught on me. Was thinking about making a hanging bag with a Velcro strap to fasten around the post. Anyone have a fabulous way of solving this. And those that have the swinging tray...do you love it? Or not?

    I don't have a SewEzi table but is sound like you could use a hanging pincushion with a bag attached to solve the issue.

    Can you place a TV tray to the right when you're sewing?

    I made a sewing machine mat and thread catcher/pincushion combo and find them very handy.

    Make a short mat (similar to the one shown above) that you can hang on the side. Use a strip of sticky velcro along the side edge of table.

    Another option is to make one that can sit beside the machine area. You can use a clear photo stand to hold the organizer.

    Lots of options and organizer ideas here. This one is cute!

    I bought the swing tray and love it. My SewEzi table is in a corner of the guest bedroom and the swing tray is always open and used with the stuff in it. If and when, guests arrive, everything is covered or put away -- the swing tray swings under the table.

    I have one, and also wish I had ordered the one with the swinging tray on it - just like you. There are a couple of good suggestions here though. Glad you posted this question!

    I bought a little tray that clamps onto a table at Bed Bath & Beyond. I've used it on some of my sewing tables where the area on the right was not quite large enough to hold everything that seems to accumulate there when I'm sewing.

    This one is much nicer than what I have; I'm thinking about buying it. The one I have does not swivel.

    Maybe you could get a small plastic cup or empty container and drill a small hole in it and anchor it to your machine with a command hook. It won't hurt the surface and it can be removed easily for transport.

    Amyjo question

    Does the clamp go around the post? Picture? Sure have been getting some great ideas here! Thank you for letting me know what works for you.

    I do have the SewEzi - well, actually two, but the first one was one of the original ones with no rotating tray. I gave the first one to my DIL who is just starting to sew, but i do have the one with the tray and like it.

    One thing i still do is slide one of those clear/lidded plastic containers (the ones they sell for school supplies) under the area where your machine sits on. There is plenty of room and you can see whats in there at a glance cuz its right under your clear insert. I used that even before i got the table with the tray - but still use my container too because i am so used to it being there.

    Clamps right onto the table. Go to “the Original Scrapbox”. You will find it there. Metal

    Would you believe my scrapmabob came up missing at a retreat? I was so upset. I was packing up and had items on my table to pack. I left to go to bathroom and when I came back it wasn't there to pack. People going in and out with their carts and totes so no one noticed anything. Kinda hard to accidently pick it up thinking it's yours.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    I have the swinging tray and I like it. It's not the greatest design but it does give me a place to park my scissors snips, etc. I'm really careful to not catch as I walk by. Since my table sits next to another table and I have to walk around both to get from my vintage machines to the ironing board, it's a bit of a challenge. I'm just careful and it works.

    I have one of those plastic roll around drawer units that has a tray on top that you can get at Target or Walmart and put it to the right of the table and it holds things like pins, scissors, etc. I too have a small room and the cart is rolled under my cutting table (it's one of those foldable adjustable tables) and when I am sitting it is easy to get stuff. If I am making long strips or quilting a top, I have several of the same units that I can roll to the back of the sewing table to catch the pieces or the quilt.

    I have one of those swing away trays for mine and I put it on backwards so it is next to the end - not extending into the area where I get up and down from my chair.
