I don't have a special cabinet at this time of my life but hope to some day. Currently I am using a very sturdy banquet table as my main sewing table and my machine has a plexiglas table that fits around it. I then have another long folding card table that sits lengthwise next to my sewing table. Perfect for machine quilting as I have room behind my machine and to my side. I have thought about using a door and sitting it on top of two file cabinets (one under each end) and then I would have even more storage. Just some thoughts.
Thanks for your suggestions, but my problem is space, I need to set up my machine in the corner of my bedroom so I can leave it set up and work on my quilts whenever I have some spare time, otherwise, I have been using my dining room table which works great except when it's time to eat, then I have to put everything away. I live in an apartment in Queens, and have a small kitchen.
Have you seen the "sewezi" sewing table. I want one as it is a table not a cabinet. There are no drawers for storage and it folds up for storage. I saw them at Intl. Quilt Festival last November and they were offering free shipping if you bought it at the show. I have checked out their website and have decided to get one. I will wait until this year's Quilt Festival to see if I can get free shipping and buy it then. It's more affordable than any thing else I have looked at. Check it out at www.seweziusa.com Good Luck!
