Looking for a New Sewing Cabinet
Before buying your new sewing table, work out where you will use it and whether you need a large area to work on or if a smaller one will do. Then measure the area where you want to use it.
Do you need drawers with room to store your crafts and sewing materials or would you prefer shelves? It is important to know the answer to these questions. It is annoying how many bobbins with different coloured threads we need when sewing. Then there are the stacks of cottons, pins and needles, scissors, buttons, elastic and lace. Need I continue. I think you can see now why women love a sewing cabinet to store all the above out of sight.
The beauty of these sewing cabinets is they double as a unique piece of furniture, which will enhance your room. Although because something looks nice does not mean its serviceable for your requirements.
Sewing cabinets have really changed over the years. It makes me wonder where the women used to put all their sewing essentials. Like in the picture below, there is not much storage space to hold anything.
I have selected three different sewing cabinets to give you an idea of how times have changed. No longer needing to sew on the kitchen table and clear it away to serve dinner.
