~A Truly Portable Sewing Machine Extension Table~
The Sew Steady portable sewing machine extension table is a perfect, practical and penny-wise addition to your tabletop sewing machine.
As a satisfied customer, I personally recommend this table in my machine quilting classes for beginning quilters, especially if money is tight.
It is the most economical of the various types of portable sewing machine tables.
It is also the lightest and easiest to transport.
And now they've added a Sew Steady just for the black Featherweight Model 221!
17-3/4" x 22-1/2" of table space for your hands.
There are several reasons to own this portable sewing table.
If, down the road, you decide you really like quilting and purchase a larger sewing machine table, you'll still be able to use the Sew Steady when you have sew-ins at guild or bee or for quilting classes at your local quilt store.
The Sew Steady Portable Sewing Table ranges in size:
I own both the Junior and the Large sizes.
If I had to make the decision again, I wouldn't buy the junior.
For my use, it's just too small for machine quilting. The large isn't so big that it presents problems taking it to class or bee.
The top is made of clear acrylic.
It can break when dropped. (When we moved to Illinois, one of our movers carried it in and dropped it on the cement floor in the basement. I replaced the it right away.)
I have had no problems with regular use. No chipping or cracking.
There is a Sew Steady Travel Bag that you can purchase if you travel alot with it.
To clean it, wipe with a cloth dampened with water and teeny bit of sudsy ammonia. The manufacturer also recommends Turtle Wax Paste and Goo Gone Gel for cleaning. (Do not use Windex, it's too harsh a cleaner.)
There is also a Polishing Kit (shown right).
My experience has been that a quick wipe with a damp cloth works just fine.
The table legs are removable and adjustable, making it easy to adjust the height to fit your sewing machine. The Large, Big and Giant all have extra leg(s) for support...that's a nice extra feature.
IF I hadn't purchased the Sew Ezi Sewing Table, I would have added a 'Big' or 'Giant' to my collection.
More room for quilting.
More space for storing quilting tools while working on a project.
