Helpful Hints


How to take easily obtained, inexpensive materials and, without power tools, create a custom fitted sewing table and  how to adjust that table to make working with a large project, such as machine quilting a large quilt, easy and comfortable.

If you have any stress, fear, or hesitation about becoming a machine quilter, it is my greatest hope that this book will help you. The information presented in this book is intended to make sewing and quilting as easy and as comfortable as sitting in your favorite chair and reading a book.
However, this book is not for someone who is unwilling to rethink their environment, nor is it for someone who must have a gorgeously finished “showroom” type of sewing area. 
My suggestions are based on comfort and efficiency, not looks, and I am completely budget minded. I believe in what I’ve learned from quilting for fifteen years and from teaching quilting for twelve years. I am confident in my experience over any furniture salesman’s and I am all about “sewing painlessly” over “looking like it came out of a magazine”.
Lastly, I think “one size fits all” is the funniest joke I’ve ever heard. It doesn’t work with clothes or shoes and it certainly isn’t true of sewing tables. A quilter who is 5’2” is not going to fit comfortably at the same sewing table of a quilter who is 5’11” – and it is my firmest believe that we all deserve to sew in comfort, in an area fitted perfectly to each of us, and that’s why I’ve written this book.

Thank's to Marguerita's suggestions in this book I've been able to enjoy sewing again so much more. My back always ached and by following her advice, it's made a world of difference. Everything is easy to do and won't cost you a lot. The benefits to making the changes to your table height and chair are so simple to do and so rewarding. I am a brand new quilter and following her advice is making my journey here much better.
