Last year when I went to the Festival of Quilts, I was admiring some Horn sewing cabinets, and decided that I really NEEDED one of them to keep my sewing machine in, but I really really wanted something a bit more contemporary. JUST LOOK at what I found on the internet - these gorgeous Arrow Sewing Cabinets - if Mr F needs any suggestions on what I would like for my birthday next year (it will be a special birthday, so I'll need a VERY special present hehe!!) this might give him some ideas. This design is called "Florrie" and I just love the colour - this fun vibrant pistachio green would look great in my sewing studio - well, of course I don't actually HAVE a sewing studio yet - but a girl can dream, can't she?.....
.....and if you think the green laminate is just a little bit TOO bright, here is the "Florrie" is also available in classic white wicker-effect laminate. The Florie features a 2-position adjustable mechanism that will move your sewing machine into both flatbed and freearm positions.....
....."Olivia" is cute and vintage and gingerbread-house-gorgeous, and is also available in pistachio green and white. There is plenty of storage for your small notions with 2 drawers and 2 deep cubbies for storage of your sewing machine, serger or baskets of fabric. I'm just dreaming about how lovely my Bernina would look sitting on top of one of these sewing tables!! And the best thing of all? I've found a UK stockist!!.....
.....and of course with a sewing table like this, you need the perfect sewing chair. I just love this bright heavy-duty Alexander Henry fabric - and there's even some secret storage space underneath the lid! Oh well I'm off to bed to dream of sewing rooms and cabinets and threads and fabrics!!
