Amish Sewing Centers

You’re probably going to want some privacy while you create all of your new sewing projects. Finding just the right spot to set up your Amish sewing table is vital to ensuring you have the space and privacy that you need. Privacy may be especially important if you have small children in your home that should not be around sharp needles, small buttons or loose strings.

If you have an extra bedroom or den in your home that doesn’t currently have a set purpose, go ahead and make it your new sewing room. When your children have their friends over to play, you’ll be glad you have your own space!

Lucky for you, even if your home doesn’t have an extra room or even much additional space, you can, at the very least, have your own corner for your Amish sewing machines. The Barb’s Craft Cabinet is only 48” x 79” x 23” and the Sewing Machine Cabinet is 56” x 31” x 20” when it’s closed and 79” x 31” x 20” when it’s open. Choose your sewing center and where to keep it by taking into account the amount of space your home provides.

Match Your Décor to Your Amish Sewing Center

If you’re lucky enough to have your own sewing or crafting room, it’s a good idea to decorate that area as creatively and as colorfully as you can stand. It’s been proven that bright colors and creative designs help to keep your own creative juices flowing, even when you feel stagnant and lost.

Now that you have space to sew and create, you might even try making a quilt to hang on the wall of your sewing room for inspiration. If you don’t have a room dedicated to your sewing adventures, you can still decorate with bright colors around your sewing center to keep your imagination ignited.

Match Your Furniture to Your Sewing Center

Both Amish sewing cabinets are available in Cherry, Oak or Q.S. White Oak, and Barb’s Craft Cabinet is also available in Maple, which means you should be able to match your sewing center to your existing furniture fairly easily if you have to incorporate it into a pre-decorated room.

If you’re redecorating a room to create your very own sewing room, choose the wood type and stain you prefer and match the rest of your furniture accordingly. Don’t be afraid to mix light woods with dark upholstery, or light upholstery with dark woods.

Tried and True Durability That Lasts

Whether you plan to use your sewing center on a daily basis or on an as-needed basis, it’s important to choose one that’s going to be strong enough to survive the wear and tear it’s going to endure over the years. This is especially important if you plan on passing this piece of furniture down in your family to your children to use in their own homes.

The Amish understand this tradition better than most, which is why Amish sewing centers are built to last generations rather than just a few years.
