    I'd like to buy a good quilting chair to sit at my long arm. Can anyone recommend a particular brand or type? I would like an ergonomic one with good back support. Thanks, Candita

    Have you tried a Beauty Supply? I know they have chairs for hair dressers that are hydraulic and can sit up higher than a regular chair and they have them with a back. Just a suggestion. You could ask your local hair salon if they have a catalog or something you can look at. ???

    Hope you find what you are looking for. :)

    I have Sew Steady or Sew Fit or something(I think I'm not at home to be able to check) chair. I love it, it has back support, 2 different ajustments to fit your body, can be raised or lowered, has rollers and is confortable. However I spent about $150 or so each for 2 of them. You can find good adjustable chairs in an office supply store. Just sit in them and try it out first.

    It's for sitting at her Long Arm so I think it needs to sit higher than a typical chair.

    They actually make them now to come up to bar stool height. The sewing chair that I have does not but the new ones that recently came out do.

    Check out a saddle stool. That is what I use for my longarm and it is wonderful and I have a bad back.

    The one with no back is the one I have. It keeps your posture straight.
    You can adjust hight and can roll as you quilt.

    I have had 6 back surgeries and this really helps. Found this before I bought longarm, couldn't do quilting without it. Can't stand for any leangth of time.
