Take care of your back while quilting!

I have never had a fancy or very comfortable sewing chair, I have always used an extra chair from the kitchen table. As I have gotten older, the evidence of not sitting properly at my sewing machine has presented itself with sore shoulders and an achy back. Not very fun to not feel well at the end of a productive day of quilting! So I recently bought myself a really comfortable and adjustable chair. It really supports my back, it swivels so I just simply turn a little and I am able to get up and move directly to my ironing board (no weird twisting to get out of a stationary chair), and it is high enough off of the floor so that my arms are pretty much at a 90 degree angle (which I believe is ergonomically correct). No more hunching my shoulders!! And drum roll………IT IS A VERY PRETTY BRIGHT PINK (my fav color). I found this beauty at Office Depot for around $65 on sale.

Treat yourself and take care of your back while you are doing something that you enjoy.

  1. I’m with you, sister! A good chair is as important as any other piece of equipment. And while we’re willing to spend thousands on our sewing machines, we cheat ourselves in safety and comfort. I’m about ready for a new desk chair myself. Will have to look at Office Depot’s offerings.
