It's not important that you have a dedicated craft or sewing room; adding one of these pieces to any space in your home will make these pastimes more enjoyable and productive.

Craft Tables

The hallmark of a good craft table is ample surface area. You need the square inches to spread out materials and work. Most tables are about as wide as they are long, and they come in a variety of heights. The table surface might be painted or stained wood, or it may be covered with laminate, glass, or butcher-block material to make cutting easier.

Sewing Cabinets

Just as it sounds, a sewing cabinet is a cabinet that houses a sewing machine. Closed, it looks like an ordinary credenza or desk. But it has several hidden compartments that, when opened, reveal a sewing machine, additional work space, and plenty of storage in drawers, shelves, and cubbies that are sized specifically for sewing equipment and supplies.

Sewing Tables

Less evolved than a sewing cabinet, this is simply a sturdy worktable that has a spot for a sewing machine cut into the work surface. The base of the sewing machine slips into the rectangular trough, making it level with the table surface so the fabric can flow easily under the needle and across the table. Some tables have drawers for supplies. The machine may be sold separately or with the table.

Product Features

Product Features

Here are some of the features of these important workhorses.

Crafts Tables

Most crafts tables are about 3x5 feet. It's up to you what height you want the table surface to be. If you prefer to sit in a chair, the table should be table height, or 31 inches tall. If you prefer to perch on a stool, choose a table that is 36 inches. And if you prefer to stand while you work, get a table surface that is 38-41 inches tall.

Sewing Cabinets

Extra function and storage is built into sewing cabinets. The sewing machine sits in a cutout on the table surface with room for a chair and the presser foot underneath. It may even have a mechanism that allows the machine to drop below the surface, hiding it within the table when not in use. Other hidden features include drop-leaf table extensions, pullout cabinets for storing fabrics and threads, and even small ironing boards that flip up from the inside. These pieces are meant to look like other furniture in your home, so they are most often made from wood with a stained finish. There may also be furniturelike details, such as cabinet knobs and trim molding.

Sewing Tables

The work surface of a sewing table is usually laminate, which is slick enough to let the fabric flow freely across it as you sew. Some tables have additional leaves that fold up when you are working on a big project. The most common height 31 inches, but there are a few that are taller to use while sitting on a stool or standing.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

When you are shopping for hobby furniture, draft a wish list of the functions and features you would like. And then take note of these extra pointers.

Crafts Tables

Storage is an important component in a crafts table. Many tables feature open cubbies or shelves that are built into the base of the table. Some have closed storage, such as cabinets. You might need material-specific storage as well, such as rods to hang reams of paper or rolls of fabric, shallow shelves for paper sorting, slots for scissors blades, and divided drawers for tools. It's best to inventory the supplies (taking detailed measurements) and plan accordingly.

Sewing Cabinets

When you don't have a dedicated sewing space, these cabinets are good options. A sewing cabinet can hide in plain sight, thanks to furniturelike finishes and styling. Most are handsome enough to sit in the living room and dining room. Only when they are opened do you realize they hide hardworking machines and storage. Look for one that has casters so you can wheel it around to make use of the best light or push it into a different room.

Sewing Tables

These can be as basic as a work surface on four legs, or as elaborate as a table with drawers, shelves, and a flip-up shelf for the sewing machine. They are best for small spaces; some are just a few inches wide when closed. Judge them by the sturdiness of their construction, particularly if you have a heavy machine to support. Also, if you work mostly on large projects, you'll want an extending work surface.
