Designed for sewing professionals, hobbyists, and craft enthusiasts, sewing cabinets are an essential piece of kit for anyone who sews regularly. Whether you’re looking to upgrade your sewing set-up or you simply need somewhere to store sewing essentials, a sewing cabinet is the ideal solution. 

What is a Sewing Cabinet?

Designed specifically for sewing and related accessories, a sewing cabinet is a piece of furniture that acts as a storage location and/or workspace. With a variety of different cabinets available, you can choose a sewing cabinet that meets your needs and suits your surroundings. 

As any seamstress or tailor knows, professional sewing requires a wide range of equipment and materials but even hobbyists collect a significant stock of equipment over time. From sewing machines and seam rippers to needles, bobbins, and cotton, you’ll need somewhere safe to store your sewing supplies and a Horn sewing cabinet provides the perfect location. 

If you’re wondering if you need a dedicated sewing cabinet or whether you can make do with DIY storage, take a look at the benefits a sewing cabinet can offer:

All-in-One Storage

The right sewing cabinet gives you the opportunity to store all your sewing supplies in a single location, which ensures you’ll never misplace any essential items ever again. If you’re constantly leaving your sewing table to find a ruler, chalk, or a needle, you’ll know how frustrating it is when your sewing supplies are scattered around your home. 

With a dedicated sewing cabinet, you can keep your supplies together and have easy access to whatever you need, whenever you’re sewing.

Enhanced Safety

Many types of sewing supplies carry a safety risk, particularly if you have young children or pets at home. You won’t want to leave garment scissors, sewing needles, or rotary cutters lying around where anyone could have access to them, for example. 

When you have a sewing cabinet, you can be confident that any potentially dangerous equipment is safely stored out of harm’s way. Giving you peace of mind, you can enjoy your favourite hobby without worrying about your equipment causing any unwanted injuries. 


If you don’t have a dedicated craft room or you simply enjoy sewing in different rooms, a portable sewing cabinet gives you the flexibility you need. The Horn Rolla Storage Sewing Cabinet is an excellent example of a portable sewing cabinet that provides ample storage while still enabling you to move your supplies to wherever you need them to be. 

Extra Workspace

The right sewing cabinet can act as a sewing table or desk, as well as provide storage options for your sewing supplies. A flat, stable surface is essential for sewing and having a sufficient workspace makes sewing much more enjoyable. In fact, you could say that a sewing table is essential for both professional sewers and hobbyists alike. 

By choosing a sewing cabinet that incorporates a workstation or sewing table, you can access the best of both worlds and create a sewing station that’s perfectly designed for your work. 

Increased Comfort

Sewing can quickly become uncomfortable if you don’t have the right set-up. If you’re using a standard table that’s not an optimal height, for example, you may find that you begin to experience back pain or neck pain. Additionally, you may find it difficult to sew to the best of your ability if you don’t have the right surface on which to work. 

Fortunately, a sewing cabinet with a built-in sewing table gives you a comfortable and efficient workstation. What’s more – adjustable sewing cabinets allow you to modify your workspace to customise your environment and create a tailored sewing station.

Choosing the Right Sewing Cabinet

The ‘right’ sewing cabinet will depend on a number of factors, such as how often you plan on using the cabinet, how extensive your range of supplies is, and whether you need your sewing workspace to be portable and/or adjustable.

However, there are plenty of options to consider and an endless array of features that can enhance your sewing. The fact is, that if you need any sewing furniture, then Horn sewing furniture is the best on the market.
