Dreams Do Come True

Saturday was the annual yard sale in addition to a support group meeting. It was a long, busy day, but I found an item that has been on my Wish List for ages.

When I first saw the cabinet, I thought it was a buffet server because my sister has one that is similar in design, but when I opened the top, I could hardly contain myself: it was actually a sewing machine cabinet.

I begged my friend's husband to haul it to my house, and after church Sunday morning it didn't take me long to get it into the house and in my sewing room. I am in heaven!

The cabinet was not designed for a Bernina, but the detachable table that came with my machine fills up most of the space.


The best part - it has a lift so I can raise and lower my machine. It is a bit stiff, but I think some WD-40 will cure that issue.

Want to hear the best part?

I got this cabinet for $25. It is in near perfect condition with only a scratch on one of the front doors.

I may actually do more sewing now that my machine is not three higher than the table's surface.

The next item on my wish list is an adjustable chair.

Saturday, I discovered that Dreams Do Come True, so I'll Dream On!

  3. Good job bringing this item home. When I broke down and bought a REAL sewing table, my own output increased by 100s of percents! It was just so much easier having it all together! Enjoy!

  4. Good things come to those who wait!
    This will probably make things easier on the back and neck when you sew, too. Congratulations!

    PS: I have the quilt you sent quilted and bound... I will deliver it to the local Women's Shelter next week. They were VERY excited when I asked if they needed a quilt.

  9. I think an adjustable chair will be easier to find than the sewing cabinet. You'll be all set soon, I think.

  10. Nice find, hope you enjoy it and get to sew more with things being more convenient. I know mine's in a box in the basement, and well...it's easy to grab yarn.

    Speaking of yarn, zap me your ady; you're next up on Betsy Ross. Left a message on the forum on RAV, but think with the death in the family poor Tracy is a bit busy.

    Thanks, have a good wkend.

  13. Beautiful! I love this..Once - a long time ago I had one like it but the machine wasn't detachable and it was a White...ran like a dream and sounded like a train. My parents bought it for me when I was a teen at an auction...I think for the same price.
