New Sewing Table

Look what my gorgeous Husband made for me for Xmas.


I had the design in my mind, however DH did the measuring, drawing, cutting, estapolling and construction and I am one very happy sewer.

We purchased the two Condo Pedestals from Officeworks and as you can see they fit snugly underneath the table when I need to pack up the sewing room for guests.

These drawers hold a large amount of sewing goodies.

There is also a leaf that can be raised on the side that fits under the window for more space to spread out or even have a machine on it so I can, if I want to, have all 3 machines set up ready to sew (which can be the case when sewing knits).



For me this is a much better use of space and a lot more storage than my original set up.



Now to test it out and get some sewing done.

Oh, he's a keeper!! Any man that can sew a great sewing table like that could commit a multitude of sin and still be worth keeping :)
How lucky you are to have all machines so cleverly organised, and all in time for summer holidays sewing.

What a great set-up, Sharon! It looks some much more workable than the Horn cabinet.

What a fabulous sewing station, not to mention a fabulous (and very talented) husband. You are one lucky lady! I would love to sew on this.

Your new sewing table is fantastic! I love things that tuck away neatly and allow the space to be multipurpose! Kudos to you for the design and your husband for the execution.

Oh Sharon, this is superb. I am using a sofa table that is too high and makes it hard to see the bed of the machine, even with a Tilt'able. Would hubby be willing to share dimensions with someone in the US? I am particularly interested in height from floor to working surface. Thanks.
