Vintage Singer sewing machines are every sewist dream and they can range in style and price depending on where you get them. We’d recommend browsing Ebay and Etsy to find reclaimed and customised ones.
Pros: They’re just beautiful.
Cons: The original machines are made from steel making them heavy and hard to manoeuvre.
HOMCOM Drop Leaf table
We’re all about multiple functionality and HOMCOM’s table does just that. We love that it’s designed to be a dining table but you can also fold it down and turn it into a side table too.
Pros: The price – this is one of the most affordable sewing machine tables we’ve found.

John Lewis’ Abacus desk would make a great sewing machine table. Made from quality oak you can use it to work on by day and craft on by night.
Pros: Its universal design – this desk will look good in any room.
Cons: Be careful not to scratch the oak surface with needles or cutting tools.
The Craft Armoire
The Craft Armoire is ideal for those of you wanting to keep all your craft stash in one tidy place. You’ll also be able to see exactly what you’ve got rather than having craft boxes all over the house.
Pros: The desk fold back into the unit keeping everything packed away in one space.

Sew Ready’s Quilting table
This sewing machine table by Sew Ready is a step up from their other designs. Baskets, wheels and fold out tables make it a serious sewist No.1 choice.

This storage unit by John Lewis is the piece that will change your craft room forever. It’s ideal for multi-crafters who need room for all their various equipment and materials.

The Arrow 98501 makes Singer sewing machines look old fashioned with its air lift mechanism which raises and lowers your machine.
Pros: Your sewing machine is tucked away safely inside your table along with your threads and needles.
