Benefits of owning a sewing table

Description Good to know

A dedicated spot for your sewing machine

A dedicated space for a sewing machine takes the creative adventure of sewing to the higher level of seriousness. Whatever your current level of expertise in sewing is. Your machine finally has a firm place to stay, and it’s not going anywhere (if not for a good reason!).   

It’s an open secret that you can operate your machine correctly only if you have a sewing table.

Storage space (cabinets and drawers)

Sewing tables usually come with:

    • cabinets, 
    • drawers, and 
    • shelving; 

Having a place like this makes it easier to keep your workspace well-organized. 

Having sewing supplies and a sewing basket at arm’s length around the table means that interrupting work in the middle is not your case anymore. 

A designated spot for your creativity 

You’ll be free to complete your projects whenever you feel like it. Let the inspiration choose the time of the day. Liberate yourself to be independent of daily activities in other spots of the house. 

Imagine that you have only a kitchen table at your service. You feel like sewing exactly when other family members are dining. Frustrating, isn’t it?

Extra space for:

    1. ironing, 
    2. quilting, 
    3. cutting;

With the right sewing table, you get rather ample space for a variety of uses. Besides, a professional sewing table is more resistant than a random one (such as a kitchen table). In general, a pro sewing table is more open to all the sewing endeavors you can come up with.

Yes, a kitchen countertop can try to replace a professional sewing table. Yet, the surface won’t be heat-resistant, scratch-resistant, and water-proof; 

So before you start damaging random flat surfaces around the house, consider going for the safest solution―the sewing table

Keep in mind that it’s designed to respond to your needs. 

When you’re done with sewing tables, take a look at the Super Label Store blog fashion and sewing research. 

There, you can learn to sew from scratch and get to know the best sewing tips and tricks. And not only!   

Clothing label custom made group

    1. woven labels,
    2. care labels, and
    3. hang tags;

What’s unique about these labels? For starters, their creative, customizable aspect. You can design your labels from scratch with a simple-to-use online configurator.

Homemade sewing table―table-tops

A well-tailored tabletop is crucial for the success of our homemade DIY sewing table.

Furthermore, DIY sewing desk table-tops can be made more efficient with a few expert hacks.

Discover how to keep scissors sharp, finish seams without a serger, and other tips. 

How to make your table-top efficient then? We asked Apparel Resources for a couple of helpful tips:

    1. Pay attention that a table is rounded from all sides. It will help prevent:
      • damages, or 
      • tearing of fabric;
    1. The surface shouldn’t be slippery. At first, this state of affairs may seem handy. Yet actually, your sewing fabric will simply keep escaping from beneath your hands.
    1. The surface can have matt or velvet finish. The first will:
      • help to prevent scratches on the surface, and 
      • provide optimum grip to the fabric while stitching;
    1. The sewing table surface should be heavy. That’s the surest way not to let motor vibrations influence the machine.
    1. For the smooth and scratch-free surface, today’s table-tops are post form laminated till the bottom.
