Adjustable Platform: A platform specially designed for your sewing machine can move into two positions. It can sit level with the table’s surface, creating a freearm position for your machine. Or, you can lower the platform into the flatbed position, which allows your sewing bed to be level with the table top. The platform easily adjusts to the exact height you desire, regardless of the height of your machine's base.
Strong Folding Legs: Made of super-strong steel, these legs are made for lasting and reliable support! To set up the table, simply open each one out, click into place, and stand the table upright. Then, if you need to put the table away, just fold each one down and store the now-compact table in a closet or out of the way.
Flexibility: This little table does double duty! When the platform is the the freearm position, it creates a level surface allowing the Gidget to be used as a desk or craft table.
Surface: The tough melamine surface resists scratches, allowing for years of sewing and crafting with a mar-free finish. The smooth surface is also idea for sewing delicate fabrics so they won’t snag.
Looks: With clean, simple lines and a crisp white finish, the Gidget easily harmonizes with a variety of decors.
Assembly: The Gidget arrives fully assembled in the folded position. Just unfold the legs and start sewing!
Machine Capacity: The Gidget accomodates standard sewing machines. Please check the the Gidget's dimensions and measure your sewing machine carefully to make sure that this table can accommodate it. We accept returns only on damaged or defective products, so we want to make sure this table and your sewing machine are a great fit! If you need a table that can handle larger machines, see the Gidget IIor the Bertha!
The Gidget provides an elegant and simple way to accommodate both sewing and craft projects:
The adjustable platform takes your sewing machine into flatbed position while adjusting perfectly to your machine's base height. Or, move the platform into freearm position for a pefectly level table top.
Sturdy folding legs allow you to fold the table up for storage
Tough but smooth melamine surface resists scratches from your pins or scissors
Finished in a crisp, clean white
A custom insert that fits snugly around your machine and creates a continuous level surface for your fabric to flow smoothly over can usually be made for this table. However, the sewing well on the Gidget is smaller than on the rest of Arrow's tables, so please call or e-mail us with the make and model number of your machine before purchasing an insert. We'll let you know if Arrow can make it!

Machines that don't fit or are not recommended for Gidget I*
Is a custom made, machine specific insert available?
If there is at least 1-1/2” between your machine bed and the edge of the opening in the Gidget on the front, left, and back sides, it is possible for a C-shaped custom insert to be made.
If there is at least a 1-1/2” gap on two sides, a J or L shaped filler may be available*.
*Please check the Make and Model of your sewing machine and contact uswith that information so we can find out if an insert is available or can be made.
What type of custom insert is available for a Gidget?
The opening in most of our Gidget tables does not have a bevel or ledge cut into the opening so the custom insert will have a lip on the front, left, and back so the insert will sit on top of the tabletop not inside the opening. The height difference between the table surface and surface of the insert will be approximately 1/8”.

Must I have a custom insert to sew in the Gidget table?
No. It is not necessary to order a custom insert for the Gidget table. You can move your machine so the left and front edges fit the left front corner and your fabric will be supported for sewing.
