SEWING & CRAFTING FURNITURE CONSIDERATIONS

CHECK LIST FOR CHOOSING

THE RIGHT SEWING AND CRAFTING FURNITURE & CABINETRY

Choosing the right sewing, serging and crafting furniture is important.  We’ve created a checklist of aspects and features to consider before shopping and investing in furniture that is likely to be a lifetime investment.  ~ShopJoya

Construction

When choosing sewing furniture and cabinetry, look for units made of/with quality materials and quality workmanship.  Choose a manufacturer with a high level of customer satisfaction.  Top quality hardware and modern drawer pulls make a significant difference over the life of the furniture.

Assembly

Many sewing and crafting furniture manufacturers ship products requiring some or full assembly.  For most of us this becomes a difficult, if not impossible task.  For this reason, look for a manufacturer who will ship furniture that is fully-assembled.

Sylvia sewing furniture and cabinetry products come fully assembled!

Ease of Movement

Ease of movement is critical for those who sew and craft.  Choose furniture with center-of-the-needle sitting position, which increases visibility and decreases back strain. Also beneficial are commercial grade casters to make your cabinet easy to move, or remain securely in place.

Ergonomics

Do your back, neck and shoulders a favor!  Choose sewing cabinetry with the Rudersburg Lift.  This lift will allow you to move your machine to the desired position and effortlessly raise your sewing machine or serger from the bottom closed position to the flat sewing position.  See video about The Rudersburg Lift at the end of this post.

Design/Finish

Visually beautiful finishes are important, but equally important in purchasing sewing furniture is to choose a unit that is durable, heat, scuff, scratch and stain resistant as well as cabinetry that is completely finished front to back, inside and out.

Expandability

Sewing furniture and cabinetry best meets the changing needs of those who sew and craft by offering expandability.  When shopping, choose a unit that you can configure to meet your needs, as well as offering the option of adding pieces, such as additional sections, cabinet doors, drawers, etc.

Warranty

The purchase of sewing, serging and crafting furniture & cabinetry is truly a long-term

and likely a lifetime investment!

Choose a manufacturer that stands behind their product with a lifetime warranty.
