I have one of these.

Mine actually folds in the center. They come in different sizes. It works for me.

Knitting or in my case, crocheting, I just sew in our livingroom in my comfortable recliner. More enjoyable! ;)

What do you mean by "hold my fabric"? I would think any large surface would work. I use my dining room table.

You can use a cutting mat and rotary cutter for cutting materials.

Go to garage sales. They sometimes have sturdy old kitchen block tables. I chose that particular table so I can use it for many things and put away when I am not using it.
It depends on your own needs. Sometimes you have to fit things to your liking.

Sounds like you need to do more researching Nicholas. At least until you find out what you "really" want and need. Good luck!:D

Good luck again on the table!

Google is your friend Nicholas! Google "cutting mats" They come in many sizes.

You can try searching for folding table tops/tenders that you can place over your regular table. You can also buy a wood table block in the size you want and place it on top of 2 horses. You can also use an old door set up on 2 horses.
