The Kangaroo can hop right into any sewing room and fit perfectly.

The Kangaroo has a three-position airlift that holds most sewing machines comfortably and moves effortlessly up and down and easily adjusts for various heights of machines for flatbed or free-arm sewing or storage.

An optional machine specific custom insert can be ordered for many sewing machine models on our Custom Machine Insert page. This optional custom insert will provide a flush surface when your machine is in the flatbed position.

Our Joey is a cute storage sidekick that comes with the Kangaroo unit. (It can also be purchased separately to add to any one of our Kangaroo units.)

MSRP of Kangaroo & Joey II Cabinet set: $1435.00 USD.
Prices are subject to change and may vary among dealers in different markets.

Description

The wide room in front of the lift allows the sewer to sit comfortably in the correct center needle sewing position. The false front removes so you can use the knee lifter that can with your sewing machine or snap in place to trim the cabinet front.

Our Kangaroo is a perfect studio piece meant for customers who do not want or need to store their sewing machine. Unlike our other cabinets that feature doors or leaves that close, the Kangaroo unit does not feature those and leaves your sewing machine exposed in all 3 positions on the lifter platform.

The Kangaroo comes with a quilt leaf on the back of the cabinet that folds up or down and will help to expand your work area, preventing large quilts or large pieces of fabric from falling on the floor behind the cabinet.

A large pull out drawer to hold essential notions with fabric support cover round out the features of this hopping cabinet.

The Kangaroo is offered in Teak and Ash White melamine to complement any décor.  Adopt one of our Kangaroos & Joeys today!

Machines that don't fit the Kangaroo

The following machines have known problems:

BabyLock

• Destiny

Brother

Dream VX8500D

Janome

Horizon Memory Craft 15,000

The machine fits the platform of the cabinet in flatbed position (a custom insert is available) but you will have to move the sewing machine from right to left to lower into the storage position because of the extension of the front support leg of the machine. Also the knee lifter lever cannot be used with a sewing cabinet due to the length of the lever and how machine sits on the platform in flatbed position.

eXpressive 920
