Questions on the difference between the Gidget I and Gidget II tables:
- Gidget I has a smaller opening size (17 1/2″ x 7 3/8″) compared to the large opening on Gidget II (23 1/2″ x 12″).
- Gidget II features 2 wheels for easier portability when folded flat. Gidget I does not have wheels.
- Gidget I is made of particle board with steel locking legs. Gidget II is made with denser MDF (medium density fiberboard) and steel locking legs.
- Gidget II will require a custom made insert for her opening. Gidget I has a smaller opening, so there may not be a need for an insert if your machine is deep enough to fill most gaps.

CS@arrowcabinets.com with that information so we can find out if an insert is available or can be
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.
