The height of this table is just perfect and I like that it has an attached, swing away platform for my serger ... BUT once I decided to buy a Bernina 710, I realized I could no longer use this table. The 71o is much larger than any of my machines. It's about 8 or 9 inches longer. It does not fit in the cutout at all. Not even close.
I have to admit, I almost chose a different model, so I wouldn't have to deal with the table problem. But one of the main features I like about the 710 is it's size. I'm tired of sewing giant costume and curtains on a small machine.
And what did I get? Well, not an official sewing table this time. I really don't want or need one of those elaborate sewing machine holding table/cabinets. And that kind of furniture is expensive. I've already spent quite a lot of money just on the machine. Also, since this machine will have a front loading bobbin case (like every other machine I have), it will be much easier to change the bobbin.
With my old table, to change the bobbin, I had to take off the extension table and reach my hand down into the cutout and wrangle the bobbin out at a somewhat awkward angle, frequently dropping it on the floor! ... grrrrrrrrrrr
Their table systems are modular, meaning you choose table tops and legs separately. And the thing that really sold me, was they have one model of legs that are adjustable. I want a table that is lower than a standard table, to make the surface of the sewing machine normal table height. If you put a sewing machine on a standard height table, the machine itself is too high, which can be uncomfortable to sit at for long periods. And since I can't sew without a knee lift for my presser foot, a standard height table make the knee lift too high as well.
But, I am really happy with the results.
I'm thinking I might get one of those BIG specialty extension tables, too. But, I want to work with my new machine a while and see if I need one.
Wish me luck!
