    I agree with you and Kensington, Rebecca! When I have the $$ I will get a height-adjustable chair; happily, the company I work for sells them, so I can get one at a really good price. I'm hoping I can even con, I mean, sweet-talk, my guys in the warehouse to assemble it for me. For now, the bed lifts are helping quite a bit, and I'll just keep saving my shekels!

    I use an office chair, I can raise it and lower it as I need. I love it.

    Shoulder relief!

    My shoulders and neck were getting sore from being hunched up whenever I sewed. I read that the angle from your upper arm to forearm should be 90* or greater. My machine sits on top of my sewing cabinet, not level with it, and even with a bunch of cushions, I wasn't sitting up high enough. I can't afford a drafting height chair right now, so I went to Target and bought a set of bed risers for under $10. So far, so good!

    Here are the risers. They are frequently used by college students for their beds.

    Here I am before the risers:

    And afterwards. It's probably a bit too high now, but still more comfortable than before:
