Free is a GOOD Thing!

One of Dear Hubby's Deputy bought a house and the previous owners must have been a sewer.  He asked me if I wanted this sewing table.............

For Free...............

All wood
 The drawers are huge.  My 500+ patterns only took up 5 of them.  I did have to lay them sideways but.........  It works.

6 large drawers for my pattern
 I feel so fancy!
cutting channel for scissors

My machine fits ok in the space.  I'm not sure if it will stay that way.  There is an insert to fill in the spot, but then my machine is a little too high.

Flush machine spot
 I am not sure what this large space behind my machine is for.  I thought maybe for an extension table but there is still a large area with no base.

Without machine
 Maybe some type of basket or something..........?

With insert

Overall I am thrilled with my new table.  I'm still trying to find a place for my serger and my cheap Brother that I use often for twin needle stitching on knits.  

FREE sewing table!

One of the patterns I bought a Jo-ann's last week was a princess seam, pullover top for woven fabric.  I haven't sewn with woven in forever!  Simplicity 1316.  I'm going to give it a try!

Until next time.................



  1. Wow, I'm jealous. I'd love those drawers. I have no idea what the opening behind the machine is for tho. Hopefully someone will....very curious.

  2. Wow! I have table envy. The extra opening may have been for a big embroidery machine? I think some take up a pretty big space. Love the pattern. Can't wait to see how your top turns out.
