A new style from Sylvia Design Cabinets Model 2600 QuiltMate Cabinet is made to fit the largest of the large sewing and embroidery machines manufactured today. The sewing machine opening measures 29 1/4” x 14 3/16″.
The QuiltMate boasts not one, but TWO Merz lift mechanisms. With a sewing machine lift on each side of the machine platform working together, the newer heavy machines are supported well. Vibrations, while you sew, quilt or embroider, are greatly reduced.
Designed by quilters, sewers and those who enjoy embroidering there are a lot of conveniences built right into this 2600 cabinet. Large projects have been taken into consideration with the drop-leaf in the back of the cabinet. When the leaf is up and the two support legs are in position, the work area grows to over 7 square feet of extra workspace! The drawer can be pulled out as well, and to support the really large projects the included quilt extension gives you even more space.
Your embroidery unit can easily be stored in the built-in cubby under the work area when you are not using it. Also included is the right-hand fold-able "wing" the extends the cabinet to the right of your sewing machine. It is a convenient place for a right-handed person to place scissors, pins, and other notions or tools.
Sylvia Design has one drawer in this cabinet, but the optional model #460 sewing chest is a wonderful way you can add drawers. It rolls right under the existing drawer for a whole lot more storage and organization of your sewing area. Then the sewing chest can be rolled around to where you are working and within easy reach. This also gives the feature of more leg room under the 2600 sewing cabinet.
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 has three positions for your sewing machine.
- 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 a 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.
