One of Arrow’s most popular sewing cabinets, the Arrow Bertha offers sewists the perfect option for larger sewing and embroidery machines with the space and features they need. The beautiful cherry model fits nicely with any home decor, making it a great investment for sewists who spend many hours in front of their machines.

The Bertha cabinet by Arrow was designed to fit the larger home embroidery and sewing machines available today that don’t fit in many other cabinets. It has an EZ-lift airlift that can handle up to 45 pounds while supporting the machine in different positions. It will hold a machine in flatbed or free arm position or fold it down under the table for storage, all with just a little push.

The airlift will hold the machine at varying heights to accommodate each individual sewist, allowing for the greatest comfort. With its great adjustability and the way it positions the needle correctly in front of the sewist, the Bertha cabinet helps to prevent neck, back, and arm strain.

Additional features of the Bertha sewing cabinet include large fold-out leafs on either side of the machine for ample workspace and a rear quilt leaf that extends an additional 5 feet behind the machine to prevent bunching and pulling of larger projects.

The doors hold 4 storage compartments each, providing plenty of convenient space for sewing tools, notions, accessories, and machine parts and fold closed to hide everything. When closed up and with the machine in storage, the Bertha looks like an attractive piece of furniture.

The Bertha sewing cabinet can accommodate many sewing and embroidery machines up to 22-9/16" wide, 11-3/4" deep, and 14-1/2" tall including the knobs. It also has a cutout in the front for knee lifters. In addition, there are optional custom inserts available shaped to specific machines for a more tailored fit.

The Arrow Bertha 98702 in cherry is made from composite structures with cherry wood grain laminate and durable locking casters for easy maneuvering. It comes with easy-to-follow instructions and can be put together quickly using only a few standard household tools.

This product is warranted by Arrow against manufacturer's defects for three years from the date of shipping from the supplier. It is also covered for 15 days after arrival for any damage incurred during shipping.

    Sewing Cabinet

    Posted by Mary Emma Middleton on 13th Dec 2018

    Love it - waiting for the insert - customer service was wonderful and helpful. All the parts were in 3 boxes - engineer son put it together (with his Dad's help) and I am so pleased to finally have a table that will handle all my projects.

    Very happy with my purchase.

    Nice sturdy cabinet. Machine lift work great. My husband and I put it together. Took longer then I thought it would. Two back panel pieces, was not clear if cams go facing in or out. Face them out so when you open cabinet it is finished on the inside. Cams will be against wall. This will make assembly quicker. Very happy with my purchase. Also the delivery time was as promised.

    In spite of the negative comments regarding the poor assembly instructions

    Posted by Elizabeth Beech on 12th Dec 2018

    In spite of the negative comments regarding the poor assembly instructions, I ordered it anyway, trusting that my husband and I would be able to put it together. It took us about 4 hours using the video step by step directions. The biggest complaint was some of the pre-drilled holes were too small and the screws stripped out constantly. Other than that it was fairly straightforward. The cabinet is attractive and just as described. I bought it mainly for the quilting features. There is not much storage, just those little plastic bins on the doors. So far I am enjoying using it, especially being able to sew flat. My Janome MC 6300 chassis does not have a free arm. As for the insert, after balancing my machine on the lift platform, we took some measurements, made a cardboard template, and, after making sure of the fit, took it to TAP Plastics and made one for less than $40 in 1 day.
