Recommendations for a sewing desk

Mary | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

Hi, I’m about to get a new sewing desk (after sewing for two years on a cheapy foldout table). Does anyone have any recommendations?

Thanks in advance.

    On the front page of Gatherings you will notice a post from Chuck T. about sewing cabinets. I think that the answers from Dawn Jardine and myself will help you considerably. It is great to get a better work area. Congrats and enjoy.

    Don't know if you purchased one yet, but I have a Horn of America with an electric lift their top of the line with several fold out tables.

    I haven't seen the electric model advertised any more, but you can ask about it.  It is terrific.  You just press a button to lift and lower the machine.  Quality is great.  I used to work in the industry so I know about these things  and I'm very fussy.

    Your original post was some time ago and I don't know how ready to purchase you were/are BUT---

    This is not a very sophisticated solution but I sure am satisfied.

    I purchased a flat unfinished door at the local lumber yard.  Placed it atop two two-drawer metal file cabinets.  Perfect height, lots of space including storage.  It's been great for the last 18 years.

    Go to Staples or Office Max and buy yourself a computer desk "L" shaped workstation. They usually run about $159 - $200. I bought one and love it! My sewing machine is on one end and my serger on the other. My chair has wheels so away I go to whichever machine I need. The desk usually also has a side self built in so you can store manual or whatever.  Happy hunting!
