    Many thanks for the suggestions to help fibromyalgia sufferers. Some days are worse than others so any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Happy quilting.

    Thanks for the tip I saw some yesterday at the dollar store. I was going to purchase a lifter but if this works I can hold off. These would be easier to take to classes too.

    I also have FIBRO just as a lot of on this board! My machine sets in a cabinet so I can't use the risers, but I do have my ironing board across the room and make sure I get up and stretch periodically. I also got one of those lumbar supports from the Dollar Tree for my chair. I find that it helps me set up straighter so my back doesn't hurt as much.

    I'm happy that you found a solution that works for you! Anything that enables us to sew and quilt longer and more comfortably is a godsend.

    there are so many of us that have fibro--does it come from quilting? It better not or else I'll never get cured! Even with the riser I can't sew for more than an hour, but then I go to my trusty recliner with a heating pad and work on my hand quilting that I do on my lap! We have to get creative to keep on doing what we love
