I have been researching sewing cabinets for a while now and can't believe how expensive they are. I have only been quilting about a year but I LOVE it. I have many projects going at once. I have finished four quilts and have rented the long arm machine at my local store and finished one all on my own from beginning to end. The one thing I always wanted was a sewing table where the machine becomes flush with the table. So this week my new Kangaroo Kabinet will be arriving. Of course my wonderful husband agreed to assemble it but next week I should be up and running. I can't wait!!

Kim - I treated myself to the Kangaroo Kabinet plus Joey for Christmas.  My DIL and I put it together.  I absolutely love my new sewing center!!!  Enjoy yours.

kudos to you kim and dh

Kim - you can see a picture of mine in the "My Sewing Room" thread on page 7 under the Quiltmaking heading.  I know I posted a picture somewhere else when I first got it finished -- probably in "What are you up to today" but that is such a big thread, hard telling how many pages ago that was.  :o)  The "touchiest" part for Celeste and me was adjusting the lift for flat bed sewing.  Mine is still off just a smidge.  When you get to that stage, go online to their site as it has MUCH better directions for adjusting it than the printed directions that come with your units.

Thanks for that tip... The boxes are arriving on Friday. Hopefully hubby can do it on Saturday. I can't wait. I have heard from many that their piecing became more accurate when they had a flat level surface.

One more thing... Marge.... how long did it actually take to put together? The lady from the factory said 3-4 hours.

You will be amazed at the difference and wonder how you ever quilted on a normal table!  If you are going to have a hobby, I say do it all the way.  I would be careful about renting the longarm, though!  Soon you will be converting your only room for storage into the "longarm" room and saving your pennies for the big purchase...or maybe that is just me.  Very addictive!!
