Sewing Cabinets Buying Guide

Beginning sewers are typically content with a basic sewing table, but as your skills improve and your projects grow in complexity and size, you may want to shop for a sewing cabinet. It expands your work space and storage exponentially, and it's an attractive piece of furniture you can keep on view anywhere in your home.

Types of Sewing Cabinets

Types of Sewing Cabinets

There are several styles of sewing cabinets, but they are all the same in one regard: They are finished just like other furniture, such as a dining-table sideboard or an entertainment center. They have paneled cabinet doors, elegant hardware, and shiny stained finishes in a variety of colors, from natural oak to dark cherry.

Credenza-Style

When it's closed up and all the gear is hidden away, this sewing cabinet looks just like a credenza. There is a table surface and a solid front of drawers or cabinet doors. When the front doors open, they reveal a kneehole where you can pull up a chair and sit at the machine.

Desk-Style

When this sewing cabinet is closed up, it looks like a desk, with an open kneehole and a column or two of drawers and cabinets on either side.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

You already know you enjoy sewing. Follow this advice to make sure you also enjoy working at your sewing cabinet.

Size

Take into consideration the space of the room where the sewing cabinet will reside. Most units open with flip-up leaves, swing-out compartments, or rolling carts. Do you have adequate floor and overhead space for these features? Can you pull up a chair easily? Do you have access to an outlet to power the machine? If you are working on big projects, such as piecing a quilt, can you spread the project out?

Features

There are many different types of storage components available in sewing cabinets. Take your time to pick the right ones for the type of sewing work you do. Do you need more thread storage or fabric storage? Will the fabric be mostly on bolts or in swatches? Do you need a cutting surface? If so, you will want a table with a self-healing mat or laminate surface. Can you store all your implements in the piece, and is the storage accessible to you when you are sitting at the machine?

Construction

Test the mechanisms of the sewing cabinet before you take it home. Does the sewing machine seem adequately supported? Is it easy to reveal or conceal? Can you access the machine to make repairs or thread it? Can you swing out the cabinet doors and pull out the drawers easily? If you have a flip-up work-surface extension, does the bracket or hinge seem sturdy enough to hold your weight as you lean in to cut or pin something? Finally, are the casters strong enough to wheel the cabinet to another location after it's fully loaded? And do they lock to keep from rolling once it's in position?
