Order Confirmation:

As soon as you place your order, you will receive an order confirmation e-mail.  This means that we have received your order in our system and pre-authorized your credit card for the purchase.  As soon as we receive your order, we automatically reach out to our suppliers to confirm that it is in stock and available.  If we learn your item is on backorder or unavailable and hasn't already been stated on the product description, we will reach out to you via e-mail.

When you place your order, the total will be charged on your choice of payment. 

 Once your sewing table has been crafted and ready to ship, you will receive another email with a tracking number to follow your order as it is shipped. Each company has a different time frame until they ship.

A General Introduction

Many of our products are custom made.  That means that the products are not made until you order it.  We do our best to keep each brand updated on the order page for what to expect for shipping times. 

Our custom orders especially take longer to make.  If your order is custom it can be as long as 20 weeks before it is shipped.  But so worth the wait for the quality of the product!

 When we ship a large custom-made Amish product, it is usually blanket wrapped and handled with care.  Because we use some smaller companies that actually hand craft the products, you will not always get a tracking number.  Nor will you get a receipt included with your shipment.  Make sure you keep your email receipt. ( should you not receive an email receipt within 6 days, reach out to us at

  Since large furniture comes via truck, not UPS or FedEx, someone will need to be home when it is delivered to sign for the product. Provide as many phone numbers as possible to be sure the shipping company can contact you for delivery.

Shipping Furniture

 EXPECT DELAYS.  We are seeing shipping taking more time as more and more shipping lines are interrupted.  

Shipping for large furniture is for curbside delivery.  When the furniture is off the truck at the end of your driveway, the truck driver’s job is done.  It is not the drivers obligation to remove the cabinets from the boxes, or wrapping, nor is it the drivers job to get the furniture inside your house.  Usually the delivery company will make an appointment with a window of time for your delivery. Please read the entire shipping page to understand what your responsibilities are.

  When you sign the delivery receipt from the freight company’s driver it is a legal contract signifying that you received the product in acceptable condition. ALWAYS INSPECT YOUR SHIPMENT BEFORE SIGNING FOR IT. 

Be prepared to inspect your shipment before signing. Have a knife to cut off the packaging and any other tools that may be needed. 

White Glove delivery has become increasingly difficult to purchase since the shipping companies do not want the liability of entering homes.  For many areas it simply is not available.  We would encourage you to hire a local handy man or mover to assist you in getting your shipment into your home.

Also be sure you have measured doorways, halls and stairs to know that your furniture will fit where it needs to go.

If there should be a slight damage, where it could easily be replaced by you, take note on all copies you sign. It is your right to inspect the product. Do not sign for it, if the driver does not allow you to inspect it. Remember, signing is a contract.  Should there be damage, a claim cannot be made to the freight company if it is signed as acceptable.  Then you assume all responsibility.

 Since custom orders are very specially made for your particular size or style choices they can not be returned.  However.  If the product is faulty in any way, please contact us and we will do our best to take care of the situation.  We work with outstanding woodworkers, and they do an exceptional job, so it would be a rare need.

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.

Acrylic Insert

Sew Steady Cabinet Insets & 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. 

  1. Positioned all the way down, you can close up the sewing machine cabinet completely.
  2. 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. 
  3. 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. 

Finishing Touches

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.
