    Thank you to the lady who wrote about using doorstops to lift the back of the sewing machine. I went right out and bought some. It took several days outside in the cold and the wind to outgas the chemical smell which was so totally worth it. I can now sew for hours without as much eye strain from my progressive bifocals. I love all of the very helpful information I am getting from this site. Thanks again all of you for your sewing tips.

    You wedge them under the back of the machine, they tilt it forward making it easier to see and less painful on the back

    I've learned more here in the 10 months I've been aboard than all the many years I've quilted!

    This is the first I saw this tip. I'm really glad I popped on tonight. I would never have thought of that. Thanks to whomever thought this up. I will definitely give this a try.
