I use my Bernina 440 to quilt and I have somehow broken the extension table that came with my sewing machine. I am looking to replace it with a Dream World - Sew Steady extension table and am not sure which size would be best. I typically quilt larger pieces - twin size thru queen size quilts. Not sure if the 18 x 24 or the 24 x 24 would be best. Anyone use the extension tables for quilting and which size do you prefer? When I quilt, I use a banquet sized table in order to support the quilt.

That would be my rely also. I've been looking at these tables recently also. I would get the biggest you have room for or can make room for.
I want one for my Janome 10001 but concerned about the why the embroidery arm works. They also have one you can move around to fito fix your machines but I don't care for how it looks.

I just got one for myself, I think its a large... I'll try to remember to check tomorrow but you can ask them yourself Which is the largest size that can reasonably be packed up and taken with you to classes. If you wouldn't plan to take it to class anyway then the bigger the better if it will fit on the table Your machine is on.

Thanks for the replys and recommendations. I will not be taking the extension table to any classes - so I think I will go ahead and get the largest one. I hope it is sturdier than the one that came with my machine. Apparently, I was pretty rough on it.

I'm looking at the Dreamworks table for embroidery use. This table has an openning at the back of the 10001 for the embroidery unit to move. I have some great stippling patterns and the extension table will support the hoop, especially the Giga hoop. Less wear/stress on the embroidery arm. The second option is to purchase the table where it's snug up against all sides of the machine for regular quilting.

I don't see how you could use the embroidery hoop and table at the same time.

The quilt table for use with the embroidery unit has an open area at the back where the embroidery arm moves. The front and side are flush up against the machine providing the support. This only works with machines where the unit is at the back of the machine. If you see the MC12000 with the table attached while doing quilting in the hoop it's the same idea just smaller for the 10001.

You wouldn't happen to have a picture of that would you. I would seem the table would be over top of it. I'm trying to imagine how far over the arm moves with doing embroidery and I haven't embroidered in a while so can't visualize it.
