Designed by quilters for you the 1600 cabinet is perfect for your sewing and quilting studio space. You get the best of storage and workspace with the 19 7/8" drop-leaf in the back of the sewing cabinet. Lots of surface area with leg support for even the largest quilts and other projects. With the large surface area, your projects will not pull and shift by falling off the sewing table. Compact storage saves your space when the drop-leaf in folded down against the back.
A drawer on the left holds the notions you use so frequently. Locking casters are a plus for stability and the ability to move the sewing cabinet around. A melamine finish that is scratch and heat resistant for durability and beauty, it is a cabinet to enjoy sewing on for a long time. The hinges are flush to keep your fabric and quilts from snagging.
The right side optional extension is fastened with pins and cams. This makes it detachable - perfect for adjusting to your needs for space.
You are Responsible to check the Sewing Machine Hole Size
Be sure to measure your sewing machine with all attachments removed. For the best fit, allow 2 extra inches around your machine for the insert to fit well. The extra 2" also allows room for your machine to raise and lower freely with the lift and the sewing machine cords.
The standard sewing machine opening size can be found in the specifications.
Inserts are designed to fit your specific make and model of sewing machine and cabinet and fill gaps around your sewing area*, allowing you to work more efficiently and comfortably. They are made with one of the highest grades of acrylic.
All the inserts are designed based on having the accessory tray removed from the machine. The insert is designed to be perfectly level with the free arm of the machine. If you have a top-loading bobbin this may affect your use.
Occasionally those that are custom cutting the insert will have additional questions about your sewing machine, or the hole that they are fitting, and you will be asked more questions.
The German-made heavy-duty airlift for your sewing machine has three positions.
- Positioned all the way down, you can close up the sewing machine cabinet completely.
- In the middle position, the arm of your sewing machine is flush with the top of your cabinet for sewing and quilting. This position is meant to be used with an optional sewing machine insert that fits around the arm of your machine.
- All the way up, the third position allows you to take advantage of your sewing machine free arm and use your embroidery unit.
With three positions you can sew ergonomically and be comfortable as you sew.
The lift allows 21.65" of height for your sewing machine and holds up to 60 pounds.
The Model 1600 has two new options. There is a quilter’s extension 1670 that can fit in the top drawer when it is completely pulled out. This adds a lot of extra support for large quilting, sewing and crafting projects. The second option is a new side extension 1690 that fits on the right-hand side of the cabinet adding a nice spot for your scissors, pins, and a nice piece of chocolate. These new extensions are $79.95 each plus applicable taxes.
Sylvia Design finishes are made with a pressed core of hardwood with a melamine resin which is durable, heat, scuff, scratch, and stain-resistant. The tops and bottoms of the sewing cabinets are 3/4" thick and the upright pieces are 5/8" thick.
Choose from any of the six beautifully rich colors that Sylvia has to offer: Castle Oak, Sunset Cherry, Twilight Linea, Brown Pearwood, White, and White with Oak trim. Every Sylvia cabinet is completely finished front to back, inside and out.
