Every sewist knows that a well-organised sewing room is a haven of creativity. Whether you’re creating home furnishings or practising clothing alterations, a neat space can inspire your next project and make the process smoother — from selecting fabrics to finishing the final stitch. But where do you start when it comes to arranging everything? Enter the wonderful world of sewing furniture.

Rather than having a chaotic collection of threads, buttons and fabric bolts, find the perfect sewing machine table, folding cabinet, or desk for your space.


Choosing the perfect sewing table or desk

Are you currently crafting at the kitchen table? Opting for a dedicated sewing table is a great way to make space for your fabrics and provide handy storage at the end of your sewing session.


When choosing your table there are a few areas to consider:


How much space do you have in your craft room and what type of projects do you like to work on? A large sewing desk is ideal for quilting, while a more compact one might suffice for smaller tasks.

Height adjustments

An adjustable table lets you sew comfortably, whether you’re standing or seated.

Wheels or casters

Sewing machine tables with wheels offer ultimate flexibility. Not only do they allow you to move the entire unit easily throughout your home or workspace, but they also mean you can manoeuvre around your machine or pattern.

Storage options

Tables with built-in storage can keep scissors, threads, and pins close at hand. Tailor Tables feature plenty of drawers


Keep your crafting materials tidy with a sewing cabinet

While a sewing table with storage is helpful for keeping the items you need for a current project close to hand, what about your other materials and tools? Sewing machine cabinets offer ample storage space to keep everything tucked away neatly. Simply close the doors and your room instantly appears clutter-free.

Look for a cabinet with varied drawers, shelves, hooks, and compartments and make sure there’s enough room for your sewing machine, too — this will protect it from dust and damage.

Do you enjoy embroidery? The Sticker Cabinet is a brilliant foldaway sewing cabinet that’s sturdy enough to hold professional embroidery machines and all your threads and tools.

The beauty of a foldaway sewing cabinet

For those who are a little space-conscious or who multi-purpose their sewing room, a foldaway sewing cabinet is a game-changer. You can fold out the table leaves when needed and pop the whole unit in the corner when not in use. These cabinets tend to combine functionality with sleek design and ensure portability.


Final tips for organising your sewing room

Once you have your sewing machine cabinet and table sorted, there are some other steps you can take to keep your craft space organised.

Label your equipment and tools

Firstly, label everything! From threads to buttons, knowing where all those small items are can save you heaps of time.

Regularly declutter

As with any hobby, it’s easy to accumulate more than we need, and even the most expansive sewing machine cabinets can soon fill up. Regularly review and clear out items you no longer use.

Keep your fabric organised

Keeping fabric in good condition is essential for getting the best out of your projects. You could keep bolts of fabric in your sewing cabinet. However, a wall hanger is a great investment for displaying your fabric panels and ensuring they don’t get creased.
