The NEW Surround 16 allows you to easily fit any of your sewing machines into the opening of a sewing cabinet and bridge the gap between your machine and cabinet for a smooth flat sewing surface.
Made of 1/4" clear acrylic, the Surround 16 adjustable cabinet insert provides you with a smooth level work surface. The edges of the table are rounded for easy movement of fabric. The top surface is completely flat with no protruding hardware. All adjustments are beneath the table and all hardware is recessed to provide a smooth surface. The opening in the table for the sewing machine will adjust to fit a sewing machine base or freearm from 5-1/2" to 10" long and from 2" to 7-1/2" wide. You no longer need to buy a new insert when you upgrade to a new model of sewing machine.
Adjusting the Surround 16 to your sewing machine requires only a small Phillips screwdriver which is included. The opening in your cabinet must be at least 2.5" wider than your machine bed and 1-1/4" longer than your machine to allow room for the connecting pieces on the underside of the Surround 16. The opening in your cabinet should be 13" or less front to back to allow the Surround 16 to span the opening.
Comes completely assembled with easy to follow instructions. Can be set up in minutes.

The cabinet insert works great on the computer table my husband altered by cutting a hole in the top and making a box for the machine to sit on. So now I have a large area when binding a quilt.

Have had other table inserts but this product is not only ingeniously designed, it is the best if it kind. Highly recommend to all sewers.

I purchased this Universal Cabinet Insert several months ago and love it! I have tried it with several of my machines in my Gidget 2 table and it works great with my vintage machines as well as my newer ones.
Sewing Mates was helpful when I spoke to them by phone and the shipping was very prompt. I will be very happy to deal with them again in the future.

I own several vintage machines along with my computerized ones and needed something that would work with all of them in either of my two Arrow Gidget2 tables. I thought I would give the adjustable "new Surround 16" a try to see if it might possibly work.
I figured that my Singer XL6000 would be the toughest test for it due to the rounded corners of the machine. To my pleasant surprise, it does a great job! Even with the small gap at the rounded corners of this machine, the fabric flows smoothly over the table when sewing.
I haven't tried it yet with all my vintage machines, but I feel sure that I will be most happy with the results. I expect to return later for one of the Sew Adjustable tables for when I am traveling with one of my machines. The service was wonderful and the shipping fast. I highly recommend this product and Company.

Although this covers the gap in my sewing table it is not what I expected. I will be looking for a machine that fits flush to the table like my old Singer.
