You go the Home Show to get ideas to upgrade your home. You go to the Lawn & Garden show to for ideas to improve your outdoor living spaces. But where do you go to design your own sewing studio? You go to Heirloom Creations!

Want to Design Your Own Sewing Studio? Start Here.

Start by answering these questions to determine your sewing studio needs and sewing studio style.

1. Do you often work on large projects?

2. Would you like it to completely close up your sewing machine when it is not in use?

3. Do you have a room all to yourself or do not have to share?

4. Do you sew in a common space such as a family room or bedroom?

5. Would you like to have both a sewing machine and a serger in the same cabinet?

6. Do you need storage for thread, sewing tools and fabric?

7. Would you like an extra workspace to flip up behind the sewing machine?

8. What is your preference – a hydraulic life or an electric lift?

9. Would you like to customize your very own sewing cabinet from start to finish?

10. Would you like to have a sewing table tall enough to use as a cutting table?

11. Does your sewing machine also embroider?

12. Will you always be sewing in your current room or do you plan to take over another area of the home once children move out of the house.

13. Do you currently own or are planning to own a sewing machine with a longer bed/throat space or a heavier head frame in the future?

Design For Your Future Needs

No matter how you answered the questions above, be sure to leave yourself some growing room. Think about how and what you might like to be sewing once your retire or once you can take over your oldest child’s bedroom when they go off to college.

Please. Please. Please.

Always sit at a cabinet prior to purchase to check for proper height, space and comfort. Check to see that you will be able to sit directly in front of your sewing machine’s needle.

Sewing Cabinet Inserts

A sewing cabinet insert is the plexiglass filler piece that sits snuggly around your sewing machine’s shape. An insert allows for the sewing project to flow across the sewing cabinet without gravity pulling against it. This item is custom cut to any make or model of sewing machine. Please allow 2-3 weeks for this item to arrive.
