Multi-Needle Monday: Extension Table for Babylock Enterprise and Brother Entrepreneur

I’ll admit I have owned my 10 needle embroidery machine for 4 years and have recently started to use the extension table and I am wondering WHY I waited so long. My other embroidery machine is a 6 needle and the extension table was not an option so I always improvised when embroidering heavy bulky items.

One of the most convenient attributes of the extension table is the capability to slide it out of the way when necessary. The brackets are easy to install and the table clicks into place and can quickly be taken off or repositioned down to access the bobbin.

Why would you use the extension table? One of the most obvious reasons would be to give a large hoop extra support when stitching. I embroider heavy jackets, thick plush towels and luxurious blankets and using the table helps keep the large hoops balanced and decreases the chance of my project bouncing out of the hoop. The extension table also keeps excess fabric out of the way of the bobbin area and back of embroidery machine. If you have purchased the optional 14 x 14 jumbo hoop, the extension table should always be used. The “B” arms would have to be attached to replace the “A” arms.

Do not use the table as a hooping station. You should always keep a clear surface for hooping only. Use a table or counter top that is the appropriate height for you. Position a rubber mat or rubber shelf liner on your work surface to help ease the task of hooping.

Remove the extension table when embroidering bags, t-shirts and other tubular items because you will need to have the ability to fit the item around the bobbin throat.

Installing the extension table is simple to do; the hardware consists of two rails, 4 tall extension screws and 4 extra small screws. One Philips head screw driver is needed to remove small screws and insert back into tall extension screws.

The photos below will give you a clear image of how to proceed when inserting the extension table.table1BLtable2BLRemove the 4 screws shown in the red boxes and place aside. Insert the 4 tall extension screws (included with extension table accessories) into the same hole where the small screws were removed.table3BL

Attach the 2 rails to the inside area of  embroidery machine, notice the two side rails will have to be installed correctly on the left and right side.table4BLtable5BL

Insert the 4 small screws into the top metal frame of side rails.

Slide the extension table top into the rails.table6BLtable7BL

The table is flush with the bobbin throat. The hoop will rest on the table and should not bump into it at all. Use the trace feature when the hoop is attached to be certain the hoop can move cleanly.table8BLtable9BL

My bulky plush blanket can now rest on the extension table and not pull the hoop down when being stitched. It gives me great satisfaction to know I can walk away from my machine and not worry if the hoop will be on the floor when I return.

*Add a water soluble topper to the top of the plush fabrics to keep the nap from poking through the satin stitches of embroidery design.

    I love my extension table! I bought it when I bought my 10 needle Enterprise. Have used it from day 1!

    The extension table was part of my package deal and it really helps when embroidering large items.

    The table came with my machine in a package deal. It is great when doing large items. Thanks for sharing so much about the machine.

    Marie, I have been tempted by this table. Would this table help with quilting?

    I have one. I use it for most things. But there are time when doing a jacket or shirt or a bag that I have to take it off. It does come in handy when doing bulky large items.

    I use the table for almost all projects not requiring the tubular relief. There are times when needing to embroider tubular items, the project is still bulky and heavy. I have devised a makeshift “table” to cover the opening in my cabinet beneath the bobbin to help relieve the excess and still get the advantage being able to embroider a tubular item. Both the extension table and my makeshift table have found their place in my operation.

    My machine also came with the table. I used it almost all the time when I started, but being new, I had more than my share of broken thread and bird’s nests, so I removed the table to get better access to my bobbin and thread areas. I tried hanging it on the rail, but that blocked entry to my cart (plus it probably wasn’t good for the rails.) I guess I need to remember to pull it out and put it on more often.

    I use my extended table most of the time! I’ve had my 10 needle BL Enterprise for probably 10 years and quilt more than Embroidery- However’ it’s Christmas and I’m trying to send my design from my computer to my machine! It worked last night and I finished 2 projects! This evening after driving 3 miles to care for my mom I come home and can NOT figure out how to SEND TO either the Enterprise or the Kingston!!! I have a mind block. I use Floriani software but would appreciate if someone could assist me! I’m sorry if this is inappropriate to ask – please delete if it is!
