I'm biting the bullet again, and giving another Toastmaster speech at our next meeting. I decided to do it on the Ergonomics of quilting (Project #5: Your Body Speaks)
I've searched our forum here and have come up with many threads on the subject of tables, chairs, cutting table height, aches, pains, taking breaks, etc. but I didn't see much on the subject of quilting standing up.
While I thought initially it would be a good idea, I rethought that after realizing that shin pain would likely develop from having your body in an upright position and constantly lifting your foot into an unnatural position to get on the foot pedal.
Any thoughts on the subject?
