    Like this one. http://www.embroidery.com/product.as...ctsetid=111007

    I have poor posture and when I sat on one of these at the sewing store it really helped me sit up and relieve the strain on my back. However, the seat seems hard as a rock and I wonder if it is comfortable after 30min to an hour. TIA for the feedback.

    I have a chair that looks similar, but I think has a bit more padding on the seat. I don't the manufacturer at the moment & I got it in the late 90's. I don't think my tail bone would like it if it had to sit on a harder surface.

    i think the price is ridiculous!!! Often at furniture resell shops you can find an antique sewing chair for $40 or less, if that is the type of chair you are looking for.

    I think this one has a bit more padding on seat. It looks more like the one I got in the late 90's. Mine has the raspberry fabric seat & back. It rolls just fine on thick carpeting. I paid $110.00 back then & that was dealers cost as I was teaching sewing in the dealer's shop. I'm glad I got it when I did as I don't think I would pay over $200.00

    I don't have a chair ... I have a Swopper. I got mine at a local office furniture supply store. They are also online, probably at something like chairs4less or such. It is like sewing on a big balance ball only it won't deflate if hit by a pin. It is height and bounce adjustable. It makes me sit up properly.

    IKEA has a chair that I'm drooling over - it has a slight slope downward. I can't sit in chairs that slope upwards - they're really hard on my back and very difficult to get out of.

    I have a few friends who use a saddle chair, especially when they're machine quilting, and they LOVE it. I might have to drool over those, too.

    I checked around different stores like Staples that sells different office chairs. I found one on sale that has many adjustments and my back and hips love it :D:D:D

    I used a chair very much like that when I was learning to sew -- in the 50's that was the type of chair they provided with the cabinet. It WAS uncomfortable!!!! I use an office chair from Staples, too. They're ergonomic -- the one you're showing is NOT ergonomic (ergonomic means they'll adjust to fit YOU!)

    I did medical transcription from home for years and invested in a very comfortable chair at that time. I bought two sewing chairs (NOT inexpensive by any means) and found they both became more uncomfortable the longer I sewed. Finally had a light bulb moment and took the arms off the office chair and use it! Wonderful! For me, I would go check office supply stores and spend my money there!
