The Feather MATE 12 x 18 is a portable travel-size table made to fit Featherweight and (wide-bed) vintage sewing machines. The cut out which surrounds the machine is 10" in front (left to right) and 7" deep (front to back). The L-shaped table has height adjustable legs to fit your machine and provides a smooth flat surface to support your hands and fabric while sewing.Sturdy non-skid, non-scratch legs won't wobble or slip while sewing. This table weighs about 3 lbs and is easy to carry along for travel or classes.
Because many vintage machines are shorter than average machines the Feather Mate comes with short leg brackets which adjust from 2" to 3-1/2" tall. Please make selection above for desired leg height, even though the Feather Mates come standard with short legs the default button will show the taller legs unless you change it and we will assume you want the taller legs. please email us if you have questions about leg height.
The table-top is non-adjustable, made from 1/4" thick clear acrylic. All edges are rounded and polished.
*Leg Height Options*
All tables except the Feather Mate come with standard legs that adjust the table height from 2-1/2 to 4-1/2 inches to fit most sewing machines and sergers.
The Feather Mate comes with shorter legs which adjust the table height from 2" to 3-1/2" to fit vintage machines.
You may request any of the tables with either range of height adjustment. Please contact us if you have questions.

My Featherweight machine is a great little machine but there is not much room before the needle. This Feather Mate table fixes that problem . I love it. I am so glad Bonnie Hunter told us of this item on her blog. I will soon be getting a bigger table for my Viking.

I bought this to go with my Featherweight. I love it! Makes feeding fabric/strips/pieces a lot easier.

I ordered it and it came well before the set time. I am taking it with me on a RETREAT and I am so glad I got it. Thanks to you and to Bonnie for referring me.

Love this product!
This is a not-too-big extension table for a Featherweight sewing machine. It provides enough space at machine bed height to hold fabric when feeding it into the machine.
The Feather Mate is 18"x12" which is the same size as my traveling cutting mat. I pair them in my bag and each one helps the other arrive without damage.

Glenda is my Featherweight, she is now enjoying her extended sewing surface. They worked together this past Sunday at a Bonnie Hunter Class in St. Charles, IL. Glenda and her new friend got along famously making sewing so much easier. They will go everywhere together from now on.

The Feather-mate was an excellent addition to my sewing space. Having additional space to the left of the needle so that the "playing field" is nice and flat makes piecing and joining rows so much easier. And, it will be eas to take along when quilting on the road.
