Learn about Sewing Table / Work Table

Originally, ladies small work tables, usually with a detachable or lift-up lid, containing a bag or basket of silk, in which sewing and other needlework could be stored. There was generally a tray beneath the lid containing compartments for cotton, thread, needles and so on, and beneath that a well, with a lined interior and the exterior in either timber or fabric. There are also combination sewing tables that may include a chequer-board top, or a hinged top that opens for games. These tables may have a drawer under the top, with the compartments for sewing equipment, and the well sliding out from under the drawer frame.
