Anyone tried one of those EziSew tables?
I'd be interested in knowing if you like it.

I've had one for several years that I use in our RV. It's a terrific little travel table, and folds up to about 6 inches flat, and comes with a heavy canvas carrying bag.
When set up, the table feels a bit unstable compared to a solid cabinet, however once your machine is in it and you're sewing, it does very well, I have been very pleased with mine and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it... for a travel table.
For everyday sewing use, not so much, simply because in my opinion it's just too small to be very functional. There is adequate space to the left of the machine to support a small project, but there is no space at all behind the machine.

Ask me Sunday - I asked Santa for one for Christmas! Not that I was peeking, but the Brown Santa Claus (aka the UPS driver) left a suspiciously large, flat box on the porch a couple of weeks ago...
I wanted it to sew with my Featherweight in the living room so I can be with DH during football and baseball games. I was making do with some wooden TV trays, but being able to set the machine flush will be so much nicer...

That's good to know. I saw one once at a sewing show, and I really thought it felt flimsy. But I'm glad to hear you've had a good experience with it. Maybe I'll get one for my dd's small apt.

I have two Arrow tables...the ones now known as "Gidget" and they are usually about $125. I like them.

Quote: What a nice idea! My sewing room is on the second story of our house and the one and only TV is downstairs.... I have considered the Sew Ezi for classes but this gives me another reason for its use.

I just purchased mine about 2 months ago and I do like it. I have a small bedroom to use as my sewing room and it is small, so it worked out well space wise. I have my Bernina Aurora 430 in it. I like the insert and having it set up with it, more than the insert that came with the machine. The table is steady for my type of sewing (medium speed to slow). As mentioned above there is not a lot of extra space around the machine to the left or back, but I usually do not sew big projects. It was not hard to put together, everything fit, and I also purchased the accessory tray too. The machine sits at about 25" from the floor, I use an old wooden chair to sit on so I am looking lower at my machine which works for me, and feels better than a kitchen table or computer desk which are about 27" high or more and then the machine sitting on top of that. I am happy with my purchase and plan on getting an insert for some of my other machines as well. I am 5'3" tall if that helps. I like sewing on my vintage machines which are in cabinets and this set up works about the same.

I have one, and use it when machine in use needs to be in a different room. Yes, space is limited to rear and rt side, but were it larger the portability would be much reduced.. like many things, there is a trade-off equation going on. I particularly like that the insert fits around my machine and makes a lovely flat surface. Hindsight says I should have ordered the 'fill in the hole' option and then could use as a light table to trace those 'darn' patterns etc.
Mine seems well-made and I like it. I think the result is 100% functional for stated goals of the product. It was a little fiddly to get the washers stacked up right so the machine base surface was the exactly needed depth... but once there, bingo! machine lifts out and it can fold up and roll to where it needs to go,. Great product!
