Pillows and Space...

Slowly I began to add a machine here and there to my sewing space. Then I reorganized a bit, and later added a nice office chair as my sewing chair. Looking for tables at a good height isn't easy. I love the 27" to 28" height and most sewing furniture is about 30". Recently I added the Arrow 603 table from Sears which is just the right height. Here is a link to the posts in my main blog on sewing and sewing machines. Included are short reviews of the Platinum 770, the Madison and the Kenmore 19233, with pictures, plus a few observations on my serger. Sergers are such fun!

Last night I made new pillow covers for our feather pillows. Had 2 yards of really dense cotton fabric called Bohemian Ticking from Home Sew. This made two pillow cover with just a bit left over. A strip about 4" wide was all that was left. I sewed up both pillows right into the new cases on the machine. That took some interesting logistical machinations. I am very satisfied and am in hopes the dratted feathers don't come out and pierce me in the night as they were doing. I washed and dried the pillows first of course. Dried in the dryer with a couple of tennis balls. It really works!

I am curious about the table you have your serger on. I am thinking about purchasing a table like this, as I sew in my family room and I like the idea of something that doesn't consume a lot of space and also folds up. Is it sturdy? Was it simple to assemble? Thanks for any thoughts on this.

I sent you a PM on PR! This table is very sturdy, very heavy and comes in about a hundred pieces...;)
