The sewing machine extension slide on table is one of my favorite sewing accessories. It gives the sewer so much more room to support the fabric as you sew or quilt. I always say that the better your equipment the better the sewing will end up. A popular Singer sewing table is now in stock. See if it fits your machine.
If you are a sewer or a quilter you know the support of a sewing table really helps you sew better. The bed extension holds the weight of your garment or quilt so that when you stitch, the project is not working against you. Another thing to say about a bed extension is that it makes sewing physically easier on you.
I offer several options for sewers in bed extensions. Alphasew offers a Universal bed extension that is easily adjusted to work with must home sewing machines. Also notice the accessory storage that puts you most used items at your fingertips. For a limited time I am offering the Alphasew extension table at a great savings. Save 20% off the universal Alpha table. Use JENalpha when you checkout at our shopping cart. Use this link to see all our sewing machine extension tables.
Another option you may want to check out is the sew steady table that is available in 3 sizes. The sew steady table is a special order item and is custom made for your sewing machine model. Allow at least 2 weeks for delivery.

My latest addition is a used Bernina 1080! For those who know Bernina as a high quality work horse, this is the machine for you. The used Bernina 1080 electronic sewing machine is in excellent condition and when it runs it purrs. This machine was one of the last Bernina made in Switzerland and was used by my mom for about 15 years. The machine has almost everything you could want in a Bernina. Great for the quilter and the heirloom sewer. Easy enough for the beginner. Read more about this great find here.
I am also starting to add inventory to a special sewing room sale category in my shopping cart. Product will be sale priced until excess inventory is reduced. Save up to 25% on some items like thread assortments and stabilizers. I will be adding more items as I can.
During a recent class I had several students who were trying to use the rotary cutter to cut 2 1/2″ strips for a quilt. The ruler kept slipping and the strips were cut crooked. I have experience using a cutter and ruler so completed their strip cutting. I then went shopping for something that may help in the future keeping the ruler from slipping for beginners cutters who are not used to how to apply pressure to the cutter and ruler. I found it with InvisiGrip. I applied the thin cut membrane to my ruler and it worked. The students loved it and there was no ruler sliding and slipping. I recommend this product to everyone!
I am sorry to hear on Thursday November 5th Steve White passed away at his home in Parsonsburg. Here is an article from Delmarva now….
Steve was know for many creative talents. He was the fire chief in Parsonsburg and an EMT. I knew Steve for his work with sewing machine repair. He worked for several years part time in our Salisbury, MD store, Jenny’s Sewing Studio, with my Dad Gray Friedel repairing sewing machine and sergers. He was know as the serger expert and his golden touch could fix any serger we had a problem with. My condolences to his family and friends. It was a pleasure to have known Steve and he will be missed.
“Longtime Parsonsburg Fire Chief Steve White, whose earnest and tireless efforts successfully helped erect a new firehouse for volunteers in far eastern Wicomico County, has died, the Parsonsburg Volunteer Fire Co., has confirmed.
White died at his home in Parsonsburg on Thursday, Nov. 5, after an illness. He was 60.
He was chief of the Parsonsburg fire company 20 years, and, fallen to illness in recent months, turned over his duties to Interim Fire Chief Eric Tyler.
“He was an all-around good person who did a lot for firefighters,” said a mourning volunteer at the firehouse Thursday afternoon. “He was instrumental in getting the firehouse built. We’ve lost one of the best chiefs we’ve ever had.”
White’s family along with members of the Parsonsburg fire company plan a public announcement about his death and to reflect on his life and achievements at a special gathering Saturday at the new firehouse that opened five years ago, said Tyler. White’s family, he said, has requested privacy until then.”
Well here is something on a personnel note and different from sewing.. My brother Jim drove my mom and I to Leesburg, Va for the most exciting wedding this past labor day. My nephew and Godson Michael was married to Shalini in a Hindu ceremony. I will share a few pictures of the event with you. I even got 2 Henna tatoos. It is funny, everywhere I go the young people want to see and talk about the tatoos…. The brides family gives all the female guests a gift and it was a pearl necklace. Here is the gift giver handing them out. It was a lovely weekend. Pictured are the bride and groom, my niece and her husband, the gift giver, and the Friedel family.
