Sewing Supplies and Tools: Cutting Table

Sewing tools and supplies: a Cutting Table

Ideally, your cutting table should measure at least 3'x12'. But a surface of 3'x6' is sufficient. For the best comfort, the height should be about 32" or halfway between your waist and bustline.
Pin It
Your cutting table should be at least 3'x12'. The 3' wide is so that it can hold any width of fabric folded double. The 12' long is so that it can accommodate the layout of four yards of fabric with out the fabric hanging over the edge or having to be folded up. Four yards is the average fabric you will need to make a jacket or suit or short curtains. It is best when pinning pattern pieces or cutting fabric that it all fits on the table and does not hang over the edge which can pull the fabric down.

This of course is seldom the case that one would have the room for that size table in their home or even most studios. Even in our sewing studio here at Love to Sew, our cutting table space is two 3'X5' cutting tables put together giving us a grand total of a large rectangular 6'x5' cutting area in the center of the studio. That's the space we have so that is what we have to work with.

If you do not have a studio or an area in your home or work space large enough than adjust to what you can work with. A 6' or 8' folding table can be purchased and easily stored. A decorative table like a dinning room or kitchen table can be used. I highly recommend purchasing a piece of plywood, chipboard, or thick cardboard to put over top of your decorative table so that scratches and dents do not get on it.



Here are some ideas for cutting tables for sewing.

These are the cutting tables that we use here at Love to Sew Studio. We put two of these tables together for our cutting area. They are easily folded up and moved or stored away if need be.

This would be my dream cutting table if I could afford it! This comes with a pinnable cutting mat. How awesome and easy would it be for pinning and cutting!

If you are very limited for space here is a simple fold-up four foot table.
