Bertha is the cabinet for you when you are looking for one that will hold all of your notions and supplies!

The Bertha has an incredible 16 square feet of sewing space.

All you have to do is open the quilt leaf on the back and the two side leaves...and you'll have all the space you need for your projects!

This cabinet can also fold away and tuck everything away so it's nice and compact when closed.

Other features:

Air Lift Mechanism: The Bertha has an easy-to-use air-lift mechanism that raises and lowers your sewing machine with just a simple push.  You can position the base of your machine flush with the table top in freearm position (useful for working on sleeves and cuffs), or you can push it down slightly into flatbed position so that that the sewing bed is flush with the surface.   The airlift mechanism can fully adjust to any type of sewing machine base height, so you can be sure your fabric will be perfectly level.   With one push downwards, your can store your sewing machine all the way out of sight. 

Large Machines:  The Bertha is designed to hold the largest of machines, and the airlift mechanism can handle a 45 pound machine!  The opening will accommodate sewing machines up to 22-9/16" (wide) x 11-3/4" front to back (deep) x 14-1/2" (tall.)  

Generous Surface Area:  When the leaves are in the open position, the table top features a vast expanse of surface area to either side of your chair.  You sit comfortably in the center, right in front of the needle.  Meanwhile, the leaves rest on sturdy supports, so you don’t need to fear that they’ll bow or crack the second you put anything heavier than a spool of thread on top!

Quilt Leaf:  Included with the Bertha is the space-expanding quilt leaf, which increases your surface area even more by adding a table top behind your machine.  The leaf attaches to the back of the cabinet by sliding along a metal rod.  The rod allows you to position the leaf exactly where your want it. (Generally a little to the left of your machine.)  Once your leaf is attached, fragile quilts and other materials won't fall to the floor as you sew!

Storage: When the two doors of the Bertha are opened, they reveal eight generous storage trays perfect for holding all your notions and accessories. Having a place for all your materials makes getting organized a snap, and your sewing experience becomes much more pleasurable!

Space for Knee-Lift:  A center cut out allows for knee-lifts.  Knee-lifts are the best for freeing up your hands and speeding up the sewing process!

Custom Insert: An insert that fits snugly around your machine creates a completely flat sewing area, helping both with ease of sewing, ability to create straight seams, and helping your wrists stay in a comfortable position.   You can order a custom insert on our "accessories" page--just let us know your machine's make and model number.

The Bertha is a truly magnificent sewing table and is sure to improve every aspect of your sewing experience!

Assembly

If you have the know-how to thread a sewing machine, putting the Bertha together should be no problem!  All you have to do is follow a series of steps.  Bertha arrives in three separate boxes.  After you open those and lay your pieces out, you’ll just need a hammer, screwdriver, (a power screwdriver is helpful), a 10 mm wrench, an adjustable wrench, and scissors or a box knife.  Most people find it takes them about two hours to assemble.  Clear your calendar, put on your favorite tunes and forge ahead!  Directions are included, (you can also watch a video under the "videos" tab about putting the Bertha together) but if you need help, call us toll free for assistance!  We’ll get you up and sewing in no time!

Happy with it.

Product arrived undamaged, assembly took about 4 hours (the video was a huge help when used with the instructions). I was a little concerned because the airlift mechanism had a lot of play to it and the surface you place your sewing machine on was wobbly. Then I discovered how to tighten that with two easily accessible bolts so that it rests firmly. No more wobble. We like it.

Easy to put together!

Everything came in great condition. My husband and I put the Bertha sewing table together in a few hours. The directions were fairly easy to follow. There was one place where it was obvious that the **** size in the instructions had been changed and we couldn't find the one inch screws. But my husband had some we could use. It's great for my Bernina 570QE.

Get the insert when you get your Bertha!

Very nice sewing table. My husband put it together following the instructions and a video link that was included. Looks great. I also got the insert to fit my model machine, it fit perfect and made the sewing cabinet top fit flush against sewing machine , be sure to give your model name and number if you order the insert to fit your cabinet. I bought the Bertha with clear insert

My wife's able to store her machine now.

I received the cabinet earlier than expected. It came in 3 boxes without any damage. It took about 4 hours to assemble. You should definitely watch the assembly video before and read the instructions - together they make the process pretty straight forward. It fits nicely in the space and allows my wife to store her machine and supplies out of sight when not in use.
