Hi all, 

Got a new Gidget 2 sewing table for Christmas. I would like to get an insert customized to my table and my sewing machine. Does anyone have any experience with these? 

Happy New Year! 

Nancy

I don't have a Gidget table, I have a Koala but I  emailed the company and they said I could get a second insert by giving them the dimensions I needed (width and length) and the model of my machine. The inserts are $149.  Try emailing the maker of your table about an insert.  JP

Wow, the cost of that scares me.  Back in the day when I bought my table, they gave the insert as a freebie if you gave them your machine make and model.  I have been thinkng of getting a new insert for my new Babylock Symphony.  Guess I'll rethink that idea for now.   Ginny

I have the Gidget 2 with the acrylic insert custom cut for my Bernina 440. I love it!  I may have to order a second insert if I win the Singer Featherweight I'm bidding on right now on eBay.

I don't have a Gidget but I have another Arrow Cabinet and I got the insert from them, so I have to agree with JP, that you should be able to get on from them. I got mine back in 04 or 05 and the price wasn't anything near $100.00... If all else fail, make a paper pattern of you machine with the cutout and take it to your local glass company and see if they have plexiglass and price it out there.

Best of luck.

Hi Nancy, it is nice to meet you. There is a company that makes them but I cannot think of the name at the moment. 

Here is a link to Connecting Threads, you can also do a search for acrylic sewing machine insert and you may find more options. insert

Thank you so much for all of your input. I haven't been quilting for quite a while and now I am so excited to get back into it.

I don't have the Gidget II but am thinking of getting it for my Brother quilter.  I'll get the insert from SewVacDirect as they have the best prices and good reviews.  $49-$59 depending on the model of the table and machine.
