Kangaroo Kabinets Wallaby 2 Cabinet
Our Wallaby has a three-position airlift that holds most sewing machines comfortably and moves effortlessly up and down in a small footprint. The lifter platform adjusts easily to all heights of machines for ease of free-arm and flatbed sewing, then down into storage inside the cabinet.
Your sewing machine will fit nicely on the lift while the space to the left of the cabinet offers room for a serger, a felting machine or even another sewing machine.
The Wallaby comes with a quilt leaf on the back of the cabinet that folds up or down and will help to expand your work area, preventing large quilts or large pieces of fabric from falling on the floor behind the cabinet.
An optional machine specific custom insert can be ordered for many sewing machine models on our Custom Machine Insert page. This optional custom insert will provide a flush surface when your machine is in the flatbed position.
Three shelves feature 33 spool holders, a large drawer and door tray keep all your sewing accessories at hand and organized neatly.
Once your sewing project is complete, safely conceal and secure all your sewing notions, fabric and equipment by closing both doors and turning the key to lock them shut.
The Wallaby II is offered in a Teak or White melamine to complement any dιcor. Adopt one of our Wallaby IIs today!

Sewing Machines That Do Not Fit Wallaby
This lists the sewing machines that Arrow knows will not fit into the Kangaroo Wallaby II model K8405 Teak and K8411 White available starting October 1, 2016.
Sewing Machines that are too large and do not fit this cabinet:
- Baby Lock Destiny
- Brother Dream VX8500D
- Elna 920 eXpressive
- eXpressive 920 (Same as Janome Horizon Memory Craft 15,000)
- Janome Horizon 15,000
The machine fits the platform of the cabinet in flatbed position (a custom insert is available) but you will have to move the sewing machine from right to left to lower into the storage position because of the extension of the front support leg of the machine. Also the knee lifter lever cannot be used with a sewing cabinet due to the length of the lever and how machine sits on the platform in flatbed position.
These machines are ones that have known fit issues. Please be advised that this list will change as new models are introduced. It is extremely important to measure your machine prior to ordering to make sure it will fit.
The cabinet ships in 4 boxes, weighing 170 #s, by FedEx or UPS. Sorry these cannot be shipped to PO Boxes. Note: If you order the Custom Machine Insert, it will arrive after you receive your cabinet because it can take up to 3 weeks to manufacture.
The cabinet ships in 3 boxes and is assembled using a standard screwdriver, adjustable wrench and hammer/mallet. Assembly instructions are included, but you can download the Assembly Manual PDF file.
