​Sewing  Armoire

The sewing armoire or sewing desk has been designed with the sewing and quilting enthusiast in mind. A designated armoire for sewing or cutting will keep you organized, give you room to work, and make your sewing time enjoyable. With that in mind, Hobby Hideaway has created a space for you to work comfortably.  Rather than spending time getting things set up, you can open the doors, pull out the desk, and start working.  You will no longer be wasting precious time setting up and putting away your projects.   We understand that your work surface needs to be at a comfortable height. and if you are either tall or short, your requirements will vary. Therefore, we will build it the height you require.  As with all our armoires, you may further customize it by adding drawers, slide-out shelves or trays, additional adjustable shelving, and accessories.   

Hobby Hideaway

Why Hobby Hideaway?

Wondering why, after 10 years, Hobby Hideaway has become the premier Hobby Armoire for both Sewing enthusiasts and Scrapbookers ?  We know people expect quality in a piece of furniture and we build it into every piece we make.  We use solid hardwoods and top grade veneered plywoods almost exclusively throughout the construction of our cabinets.

You probably know, that thanks to "modern products" such as particleboard (compressed wood chips) of MDF (made of compressed fiber from various sources) once wrapped with a thin sheet of plastic, they replicate exotic wood grains and designer colors we all like.  Although commonly used in production cabinets and less expensive kit form furniture, we limit its use wherever practical.  So always check to see what's inside - you'll find real wood in a Hobby Hideaway.  And remember, the lasting beauty and natural quality of real wood is your future reward when the cost is forgotten.

And about our desk - You won't find another like it.

The patented mechanism of our Level Desk System allows its full extension capable of holding over 150 pounds without any supporting obstructions.  The Formica  top is the perfect surface for almost any activity.  Being able to put away half finished projects without disturbing them makes Hobby Hideaway one practical piece of furniture.

We Build it all in the USA

You are buying quality, fully assembled furniture designed to your custom requirements and proudly made in the USA.  No kits, no assembly required,  Just long lasting quality throughout.


Custom Construction


The Grand

This is the grand daddy of them all, at 90 inches high it stands proud under high ceilings yet fits under 8 foot ceilings with room to spare.  This armoire has all the features of our Classic design with more than 8 cubic feet additional storage space, (that's more than 8 basketballs).  Matching side cabinets for the Grand complement this armoire and add even more storage and display possibilities.  This is a beautiful piece of furniture that can be built to your specific needs.

Remember - We Build It..... You make it yours.

Mini Workstation

This is a compact workstation (on casters) that's loaded with features like built in OTT lighting, adjustable shelving and our Patented Level Desk System.  It is a scaled down white melamine version of our larger Classic and Grand models measuring just 3 feet wide and 5 feet high.  It is also available in high grade woods, stained or painted in the color of your choice.  As with all our models, the workstation is available with custom slide out shelving, drawers, and accessories configured to meet your specific needs.  It's smaller foot print allows it to fit where larger pieces won't.  It can roll from room to room or simply be re-positioned when desired.  The lower height allows convenient use of the top for display. 

We manufacture custom sewing desks and scrapbook furniture with the patented exclusive Level Desk System ™ that provides the user an extremely strong 4’ x 3’ flat laminated work surface. Originally designed as a scrapbook armoire for sewing and scrapbooking, it can also be configured as a sewing cabinet, universal hobby furniture and home office desk that allows unfinished projects to remain as-is when folding the desk away. Behind the scene, a precise mechanism allows it to fold into itself keeping the interlocking work surfaces level at all times. Around it all, a high quality custom-made sewing cabinet built to your specifications provides serious organization and storage benefits. Open the doors on this beauty and it's all business - close them and you're ready for guests.
