Vintage Sewing Shopping Roundup – Sewing Furniture Edition

by Andrea

If there’s one thing I am chronically lacking in my sewing room, it’s storage.  Which is why I love to look at vintage sewing furniture, as it’s always got so much storage!  Here’s some great pieces I found on Etsy.

Vintage German Small Chest of Drawers Sewing Box

Such a handsome piece of furniture!  Seller’s description says it has an organizer in the middle drawer for your sewing stuff.

Mid-Century Roll Top Sewing Cabinet

Although mid-century sewing boxes on legs are fairly common, the rolltop design of this one makes it really unique!

Mid Century Hawkeye Sewing Storage Bench/Stool

I am always on the lookout for one of these sewing storage stools at the thrifts and garage sales, but I still have yet to come across one!  They are definitely on my “to own” list.

Mid Century German Sewing Cabinet

If I won the lotto this weekend, dear NPR readers, this sewing cabinet would definitely be mine.  Custom built to house a vintage Singer, this cabinet also has a ton of storage.  And not to mention, it’s goregous!

Vintage wooden sewing chair with storage seat

I think I just found another item that’s going on my “must have” list – a chair with sewing storage in the seat!  How awesome is that?

Have a great weekend, everybody!

    I really love that sewing chair; I hope I can find one some day! I have my Mom’s mid century danish modern sewing cabinet. She bought it for her new Viking sewing machine around 1966. I still have the grade school photos of my sister and I in our matching outfits that she made for us on that sewing machine. She made all of our pajamas (baby dolls), school clothes, and church dresses too. Such wonderful memories.

    I have my mother’s sewing machine and cabinet which looks like desk from the early 70s.. I don’t sew and keep trying to find someone who would like to have it.
