Arrow 98701 Bertha Sewing Cabinet for Large Machines
Color: White Finish
Hello, spacious worksurface! Bertha sewing cabinet is an expansive, full-size sewing cabinet built to handle large quilting projects and designed to elevate your sewing experience with comfort and sewing convenience! Bertha features a 3-position hydraulic sewing lift for free arm and flat bed sewing, 16 square feet of workspace, a rear sliding quilt leaf, 8 storage cubbies for thread and sewing notions, and folds to an incredibly small, home-friendly footprint!
Bertha was made to fit today's large and heavy sewing and embroidery machines. Her airlift holds a 60 pound machine and will move your sewing machine up and down effortlessly into 3 positions: free arm, flatbed and storage. The airlift easily adjusts for different height machines as shown here. We have also included the quilt leaf for the back of the cabinet. The leaf will increase your workspace behind the unit creating approximately 5 square feet , so fragile quilts won't fall on the floor as you pass them through the machine. The leaf slides along a metal rod behind the cabinet for custom positioning to the left of your machine.
The two doors on Bertha have a total of 8 storage trays for all your sewing accessories. A cut out in the front allows for machine knee lifters to be used comfortably. Sew with correct posture avoiding stress on your hands, back and neck in any position by sitting in front of your needle for center needle sewing.
