Searching for the best sewing table for small spaces can be daunting.

I mean, what sewer really wants a small sewing space?! Most dream of a sewing space the size of a 2-car garage… if not larger! Unfortunately the reality is quite the opposite. Homes (and budgets!) are getting smaller. And it’s frustrating having to pull out your sewing machine every time you want to sew a piece of garment, just to put it away again.

You need creative sewing storage solutions, with your sewing machine easily accessible for your favorite hobby.

Even if you don’t have a 2-car garage space, keeping your sewing machine set up in at least a small dedicated space is the secret to always having time to sew. A specialty sewing table will ensure that your sewing machine and haberdashery are readily available. Get your sewing machine off the dining room table and give it a place of its own!

Selecting a small sewing table depends greatly on the following:

  • The size of space that you have
  • Price point
  • The size of the machine
  • What kind of sewer are you: Are you a beginner, seamstress, quilter, or are you downsizing

During our search, we found that the best sewing table for small spaces could have some or all of the following features:

  • Good value for money
  • Sturdy with legs locked into place
  • Portable with sturdy wheels
  • Foldable with an easy setup and collapse
  • Durable
  • Correctly sized table


In terms of price point and small space, in our opinion the Arrow Gidget sewing tables are the best value for money.

Watching the video below, you would agree that it’s quite sturdy for the price. We consider this one of the best sewing tables for small spaces, given its durability, design and price.


A side note: The Gidget I is made with particle board while the Gidget II is constructed from MDF (medium density fiberboard). Should either table be your choice, we do recommend that you order optional the custom acrylic insert to create a totally flush sewing surface. You can find that as an optional add-on when you click on the button above.

What is a custom acrylic insert you might ask? Inserts are designed to fill the gap between your sewing machine and cabinet opening for a flush sewing surface. Each insert is specially built to fit your specific sewing machine and
Arrow cabinet combination. This ergonomic work surface will allow for straighter stitches, less fatigue and a happier sewing experience!
