This is such a great accessory for machine embroidery, that after making one for my wife, I felt that it should be made available for other sewers and embroiderers too! Made in my workshop, this solid unfinished (or painted) wood embroidery machine riser is made custom to fit your sewing or embroidery machine. The machine in the photo is a Brother PE-770, but it can be made for any machine.
There is also a drawer to hold all of the small accessories that came with your machine, like extra presser feet, bobbins, and small scissors. It comes with a silver knob; if you'd prefer a different knob, let me know.
Why is a machine riser useful? It functions much like the free arm does on a sewing machine. It creates a space for a tube of fabric (like a t-shirt or tote bag) to go over and under the machine. This is much more effective than trying to pin or clip the back of the item out of the way while you're embroidering the front.
Or, if your sewing machine is on a low table and it'd be more comfortable for it to be higher, this riser would also be great for that. Custom heights are available too, generally at no extra cost!!
**NEW FEATURE: I now include 6 circular felt pads on the bottom of each riser to prevent it from damaging the surface you place your riser on. It also will allow the riser to be slid across most surfaces with ease. I've also tested these on my wife's two machine risers for over a month of heavy usage before providing them to any customers to ensure the riser stays put while in use! (PS: I'm always open to ideas you may have to make the product better for your specific needs, this was actually a customer suggestion, now they're included on all riser orders!)
*********When you purchase the listing, please provide the dimensions of the bottom of your machine along with the height you'd like the riser to be. (If you have a Brother SE-400 or PE-770, you don't need to provide the dimensions as we already have those) The riser in the photo is 4 inches high, but you can choose the height that works best for you.
*********Shipping Note: This item is large! If you're looking for shipping outside the US, it will be costly, but I am willing to ship it to you. If you are interested in having one made and shipped outside the US please contact me directly and I can get a quote and see if you'd like to proceed.
I ship everything via USPS, most items ship within a couple days, however when things require painting they often take a few more days with weather conditions and allowing time for the paint to cure before packaging your item.
I also wrap your item in bubble wrap prior to putting it in any sort of box or packaging to help keep it from getting damaged during shipping. I do my very best to package each item with care.
I accept PayPal, Etsy Direct Checkout, and Etsy Gift Cards. My preferred method of payment is PayPal and helps me keep my expenses down.
Returns & exchanges
Since my items are made to order, any refund would have to be approved by me. In cases of damage from shipping, I do always add insurance on my shipments so we can take that route if necessary and get another item out your way. I have yet to have any item damaged by USPS.
I will accept just about any custom order you can think of! Just let me know what it is you need made and I can help you make it into reality! I will also keep in mind the cost to ship the item, as the bigger they get, the more expensive they become to ship.
