A dedicated workstation and a means to keep your sewing materials organised and accessible are provided by sewing machine cabinets. When not in use, airlift cabinets keep your machine safe and out of sight. For storing thread, fabric, scissors, pins, and other supplies, storage cabinets are fantastic. You may easily work on huge projects since quilting tables provide a greater area. There are many types of sewing cabinets:
- Sewing cabinet with a fold out table
- Cabinets with Airlift
- Cabinets with built in storage
- Foldaway sewing cabinets
Getting a dedicated cabinet for your sewing area will help you get your sewing space more organised and clean. Having a dedicated sewing area makes sewing both easier and more fun. Compliment your sewing cabinet with a Sewing Chairs and you will be comfortable sewing for hours. If you are looking for more of a traditional sewing desk or sewing table we have a post on our favourites here: Best Sewing Tables and Desks.
Our Favourite Sewing Cabinets
Kangaroo & Joey Sewing Cabinet
Full-size sewing cabinet Kangaroo & Joey by Kangaroo Sewing Furniture has a 3-position hydraulic lift that accommodates most standard sewing machines on the market, up to 55lb. It has a roomy work surface for large quilting projects, and a movable storage caddy for versatile sewing and crafts storage. The caddy features 3 locking drawers to keep sharp notions safe and out of reach. The rear quilt leaf expands the work surface to keep large projects from pulling or laying on the floor. The top drawer also includes removable cover to create additional workspace. This is a very versatile sewing cabinet that will really help you keep your work area organised.
Aussie Sewing Cabinet
The iconic Aussie Sewing Cabinet from Kangaroo Sewing Furniture has a three-position hydraulic sewing lift and over 31 square feet of sewing workspace for free arm and flat bed sewing! The Aussie workstation has a mobile storage caddy with numerous pre-set settings that is ideal for storing an overlocker or other sewing supplies. In no time, your substantial quilting projects will be grateful to you! Unbelievably, Aussie compresses to a size of little over 4 feet by 2 feet, when you need to pack it away. This is great for people who doesn’t have space to leave it out but still want a large sewing space while working.
