Featured in the PR book!
My DSIL (who is 6 ft tall) doesn't like clutter. But, when we were cutting out 6 bridesmaid dresses and 2 flower girl dresses she gave in to the idea that she needed a "Tall" cutting surface. Her DH took 2 sets of saw horses from the garage (tall enough for a 6" man) and then she had him take down a set of bifold doors off the closet. Voila....tall cutting table. When we were done the closet doors were put back on the closet and the sawhorses resumed life in the garage. (we did put my cardboard folding cutting boards on top to keep the surface pristine).

My DH wouldn't do that, so I have a cutting table!

I like your solution but have no husband to take doors down for me! This has to be almost everyone's problem to solve! I have a small square foldable game table, but that wuldn't accomodate a long skirt. I figure I'll have to use my bed! (My back could never do it on the floor.) -LornaKismet (Lorna A.)
