Enjoy the freedom of easily moving between your sewing machine and serger. The drawer chest provides lots of storage space for frequently, and not so frequently, used notions and fabrics.
This sewing cabinet also features commercial-grade locking casters that make it easy to move the cabinet around your sewing studio, even on carpet. Glue and dowel construction for tight, strong joints. The hinges are flush with the top surface to keep your fabrics or quilts from snagging. When you sew you are centered right in front of the needle, keeping you in a comfortable position. Complete with durable stain, scratch, and heat resistant melamine finishes ~ and you choose your color!

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 Merz heavy-duty lift is made in Germany and has three positions for your sewing machine, holding up to 60 pounds.
- 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.
