Quilt With Us

Christmas came a little early this year . . .

as DH took me shopping for a new sewing cabinet as my Christmas gift!  The one I had been using was purchased many years ago when I had a much different machine, and my beloved Bernina 1260 does not exactly fit it.  The machine sits too high, even with my chair jacked up to its highest point, and my shoulders ache after a short time.  I have to surround it on two sides with portable tables to support a quilt --  and ...and.. It's all just very awkward!  

DH finally tired of my whining and we went out to purchase a "Kangaroo & Joey" combination sewing table and storage unit that will be customized to fit the Bernina.  This is the line that used to be called "Koala", but is now known as "Kangaroo Kabinets" (yeah, cutesy spelling and all).  It will be delivered, assembled, in a couple of weeks.  With a little rearranging, it will fit in my current space.  I'm so excited!

Hmm... Maybe I should post "before" and "after" photos.

Lucky youCarol Ann! You must have been on Santa's "good" list. As you can see, we are all excited for you.

Yeah! You will love it, that's the exact one I have! I also got the Dingo when CT had it as a package. I have my sewing table open which is great when I want to work on applique tracing and I also use it for cutting. Merry Christmas!

How wonderful! Your DH is a keeper.  I am sure you are going to LOVE your new cabinets. I, too, am looking forward to the pictures.

Lucky Lady...every job needs the right tools to work with! We'll need pictures!

Carol Ann you will love your cabinet.  I had mine built by a cabinet maker in Canada 7 years ago and have loved my sewing station.  I also had him make my cutting table with drawers.  They delivered it  and set it up for me while I was at work.  I can fit four machines on mine.

Enjoy your early Christmas gift.  One and a half years ago my DH surprised me, too; we went to Viking shop to purchase a new Viking machine and also bought a new Koala cabinet.  Love, love, love it!  Especially the storage drawer and shelves and extension table on the back; lots of room for project when machine quilting.  Enjoy!

What a great early gift!  You'll love using it.  Just having the machine at the correct height will help a lot.  Enjoy!
