The sewing machine pushes down into the cabinet using a German made air lift allowing the top to be closed. When the doors are closed this unit appears to be a sideboard or chest to fit into your decor. New zinc plated roller frame does not chip and bind the rollers like the previously painted frames. 

The heavy duty air lift is rated for up to 50 lbs with adjustable levels for both table top and flat bed sewing.

The cabinet is equipped with quality hardware with self-close drawers and double knuckle hinges on top so the fabric will not snag. Rolling floor casters are standard. 

Sewing machine template is also included and will be cut to fit your specific sewing machine so it will fit flush with the work area. No worry if you ever want to upgrade to a new machine a new template may be cut and sent without having to alter the cabinet top.

Standard knee hole is 20" and will accommodate most standard size machines in the 14"-18" width range. If you have a larger embroidery machine this cabinet will need to be stretched or have the drawers cut down in width. Normal drawer width is 10-1/2" reducing the width 2" still leaves a nice drawer without having to lengthen the cabinet. This is just for the base of the machine to fit down into the cabinet. Removable embroidery arms used after the machine is up at table top height does not need to be considered in measuring the base width. There is an up charge for this modification.

You may choose between several door options. The arched raised panel (pictured) is standard. If you wish to select a different style such as; standard raised panel, shaker style, or mission style, select these options in the drop-down boxes. The Mission and shaker option will be an up charge. (Pictured Left to Right, Arch Top Style, Mission Style, Shaker Style, Standard Raised Panel Style).

Cabinets are built one at a time with each order making it easy to customize or reconfigure to your needs, just drop us an e-mail with your custom request.  A simple change such as reversing the drawers to accommodate a left-hand person can usually be accomplished for around $150

Customers tell us that we are already very competitive with other stores selling Amish sewing machine cabinets, but when they start looking at what we include as standard on ours and what the others call options, Cottage Craft Works pricing for these wonderful heirloom quality cabinets just can't be beaten.  We include the spool drawer, the sewing machine template to fit your machine, and we include the rollers. 

Cottage Craft Works has gained a respected reputation for quality sewing cabinets and was mentioned in the December/January 2015 issue of Vogue Patterns Magazine as a resource for Amish handcrafted sewing machine cabinets.

You may also add a folding table extension on the back side to extend the table behind the machine, use the drop down arrows at the bottom to the page to select 15" or 18" extension. Note: this table extension will be the same 43" width of the main cabinet and will not extend out past the fold out tops.

Amish sewing machine cabinet will generally take 6-8 weeks to build and ship. These small Amish shops do at times become overloaded with seasonal orders. Over all the years that we have been selling these cabinets we have had four cabinets from this builder that went much longer to build and ship.  Each cabinet is handcrafted for quality and not mass production speed. Call us if you would like to know the current build time.

Shipping Options

You may pick the cabinet up in Northern Indiana; select F.O.B. for no shipping charge.

Select Area White Glove In-Home Delivery

We are pleased to provide a select area in home white glove delivery to metropolitan areas in the Eastern, Northeast and Southeast States. Metropolitan areas in the select rate states include  CT, DC, DE, GA, IN, KY, MA, MD, ME, MI, NC, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, RI, SC, TN, VA, VT, and WV. Flat rate inside delivery is also available for Chicago and the surrounding cities, but not other cities in Illinois. Contact us by e-mail to verify if your zip code falls within the select areas.

If you live in any of these metropolitan areas you may qualify for Flat Rate Select Area Shipping of $495. Our shipping company will pick up your cabinet from the Amish shop when it is completed, deliver it and set it up in your home including up or down stairs. The shipping company utilizes their own trucks and employees to deliver into these areas and is able to offer this incredible service for a flat rate. The shipping company will also deliver additional items at the same time should you decide to also order let’s say a spool cabinet or other custom Amish furniture.

Shipping Outside Flat Rate Select Area

For those who live in an area not covered by the flat rate plan; we approach shipping a bit differently than other companies. We want of give you a quality product and not play smoke and mirrors with the shipping. Most companies will just double or nearly triple the wholesale cost and offer either free shipping or shipping at a minimal amount. The fact is these cabinets are shipped truck freight and shipping is a costly factor. Depending on how close you live to Indiana, shipping will vary greatly.

You may select shipping deposit for the Midwest, South, Southwest, and the Western States. These rates are estimated rates for our shipping company to pick up your cabinet at the Amish shop pack it and ship it via freight on a common carrier with curbside delivery to you. Lift gate and inside delivery is available for these areas as well but at an additional cost. Generally, the additional cost will run around $75 for lift gate and $200 additional for inside delivery. Inside delivery requires the trucking company to supply another person for the delivery.

If the actual shipping cost is less than the shipping deposit we will refund the difference. We will absorb up to 10% above the estimate. If the cost will be more than the estimate including 10% we will contact you for additional shipping cost before processing the order. You will be able to decide if you still want to continue with the order or have a full refund.

If you would like to have a shipping quote before ordering just drop us an e-mail with your address and zip code.

We do have the same access to regional blanket wrap furniture haulers used by other Amish furniture companies advertising lower shipping rates. These regional haulers do a great job and at times can save nearly half on shipping cost. What the other furniture companies won’t tell you is that most of these truckers only make a trip to the regions monthly or in some cases every other month and that you may have to wait that much longer to receive your item. These carriers also don’t service all parts of the United States so, you may still need to go and pick the cabinet up in a larger city.

Depending on the timing of when the cabinet nears completion we can check with one of the carriers to see what options and timing that might be available. Just select the F.O.B pickup shipping option at checkout. We will go ahead and obtain a shipping quote for the regular shipping rates so that you will know how much it could cost to ship and then collect whichever option works best for your delivery when the cabinet is ready to ship.

Customer Reviews 3 item(s)

We love our beautiful new oak furniture!
I just received my oak sewing machine cabinet and am extremely pleased with the quality of the workmanship and how smoothly everything works - the slide-out thread case, the drawers, and especially the machine lift. We wanted a beautiful piece of furniture, not an ordinary utility sewing table, and that is exactly what we got! I received personal guidance during the ordering process so I could get just the cabinet I wanted, made especially for me, and I agree that the shipping service did a great job of protecting our beautiful cabinet during its trip to California. It fits in beautifully with other custom Amish furniture we have had built for our home. Review by S. G. Preece / (Posted on 10/29/2015)
