Update! New Quilting Setup



I already had these two end tables, which get moved all over the house and were currently not being used for anything important. Initially I put them together to form a long rectangle but changed my mind so I could extend the one on the right to make ironing easier. I was afraid they might not be stable enough for fast machine quilting, but no jiggle was evident as I speedily quilted the piece under the needle here. And most importantly, I was sitting above my work with no tension on my upper arms or shoulders. Much much better.

I can easily move this to any part of my studio that has an outlet, and I just quickly put it here, without having to move any  other furniture. I can tell you right now, that my folding table on risers will be the first to go. Then I might scoot this all over to the left side of my dining table, soon to be the fabric spreading out table, where I will be more in line with the TV and closer to the phone, should you be phoning me. ha!

I have a nice space for my knees, and my barefoot pedaling of the machine, plus I can easily move the knee lifter without banging into a table leg. The dining room table is just high enough to be above the sewing extension and yet low enough if I need to drape more of a quilt over it as I sew. I am leaving a blank space here for my 5PM  cocktail.
I really think this will work, and I didn't spend a nickel. Yay!

  2. I'm in the process of doing a similar thing....finding odd pieces around the house to re-arrange my studio/office space. I only have a small bedroom so space is limited but so far I've brought in a chair and a folding table. I like to barefoot sew also.
