    Post Sewing machine extension table

    Believe it or not, I'm still sewing with my mechanical Brother PS1000. A fancy new machine isn't in my future, at least anytime soon. I'm going to do everything I can to have the best sewing experience I can afford. I'd like to invest in an extension table. Any recommendations, advice, experiences good or bad, pearls of wisdom?

    Extension tables are wonderful. My old Brother and my new one both came with one, but I would love to have a bigger acrylic one. They make quilting and even piecing so much easier.

    I keep a fold up table next to my sewing cabinet .. It is larger than a tv tray table, but smaller than a bigger / longer fold up table. Hope this gives you and idea.. esp if you have a space problem like me.

    I have the sew steady extension table and really like it. It is custom made to fit your machine when you place the order. My machine is about 29 or 30 years old. I think my extension table is 18 x 24. Get a big one.....what ever you can afford.

    Mrs. HandsomeRyan bought me one of these for Christmas and it is awesome. Took some time to get used to moving it to change bobbins but totally worth it. Fits very nice.

    I got a Janome 6600 that came with an extension table, it's great for piecing and smaller quilting. But it seriously gets in my way when quilting a large quilt. Somehow the quilt gets caught under the table and lifts it up when quilting. So, I am having hubby make me another table top to set the Janome into. He did that for my Janome DC5100 and I love it.

    ah ha... now I understand what ya all were wanting. I never thought along those lines since my sewing cabinets have the opening in them.. just having to fit the machine into the hole and the surface was flat.. ready to go N sew.

    Wow, I didn't realize the newer machines didn't have those cabinets til recently. My poor ol mind just lost it... can't wrap it around this newer techie stuff either. Sorry peeps.

    Judy, I have had to improvise and do like you before I purchased my sewing desk. It is a huge old bankers desk I found at a thrift for thirty bucks. Wonderful deep drawers and space on the top for lots of fabric moving through the machine.
