    Cool What kind of CHAIR do you sit on to sew?

    Hi ladies, along the lines of sharing our sewing room photos I was wondering what kind of chair you sit on? I sit/ perch myself -sorry to say-on a kitchen-type stool.....and gosh does my back feel it after an hour-after two I'm hurting until I fall asleep! I know.... That's terrible. I guess it's because my sewing table is high and the stool feels just right. I'm sewing Jenny & Steven's TUMBLER tote and just thought the chair ? would be interesting conversation. The tote by the way is looking good so far....I've sewn the 20 tumblers together.

    I currently use a wooden standard kitchen chair. I do put folded up a very small quilt in the seat for a little padding. Given a choice, I would have a nice padded swivel chair with wheels. It is on the wish list just have not made it that far down on the wish list. It would be a good Christmas idea. Thanks for mentioning chairs - now I've got my Christmas wish list started for the year.

    I use a desk chair, it's soft and turns around whenever I need to.

    Funny thing too regarding the money- I am in Sacramento & we have a wonderful famous quilter in town with a 3day workshop....I usually attend these events but first....the LQS didn't have a schedule-told me to call back. When I called back they were sold out! So I decided to spend that $300.00 on myself....I took my little 221 in and had a complete tune-up for $129 and I still have the rest of the $$ left!

    I use my dining room table for quilting so Im on just a dining chair. It hurts the booty after about 20 minutes so my next project is to make a super comfortable chair cushion.

    I use the old office chair we got at Office Depot. It's comfy enough but the arms get in the way sometimes.
    I am on the lookout for a comfortable task chair with no arms from Office Depot or Staples as soon as I have a chance to get there. Haha
    I've seen really nice chairs at a LQS but I really don't want to spend $300 on a chair just cuz it has "Bernina" embroidered on the back.

    I have an office swivel chair that I bought at an estate sale for $20. I suggest you look at the clearance section of Office Depot, too. Often they will have office chairs marked down really cheap.
