SEWING MACHINES THAT DO NOT FIT EMU SEWING CABINET

We are aware of the following sewing machines that are too large to fit into the Emu Cabinet:

  • BabyLock – Destiny and Solaris
  • Brother – Dream VX8500D and Luminaire Innov-is XP1

Sewing machines that will fit, but have special requirements:

  • Janome – Horizon Memory Craft 15,000
    • The machine fits the platform of the cabinet in flatbed position (a custom insert is available) but you will have to move the sewing machine from right to left to lower into the storage position because of the extension of the front support leg of the machine. Also, the knee lifter lever cannot be used with a sewing cabinet due to the length of the lever and how the machine sits on the platform in flatbed position.
  • Elna –  eXpressive 920
    • The machine fits the platform of the cabinet in flatbed position (a custom insert is available) but you will have to move the sewing machine from right to left to lower into the storage position because of the extension of the front support leg of the machine. Also, the knee lifter lever cannot be used with a sewing cabinet due to the length of the lever and how the machine sits on the platform in flatbed position.

Please be advised that this list may change as new models are introduced. It is extremely important to measure your machine prior to ordering to make sure it will fit.

    • Three adjustable shelves to the left of sewing well (lift side)
