    I have a regular office chair with wheels that I use at my sewing machine. It allows me to scoot back and forth across my long sewing table.

    However, the chair is kind of uncomfortable, and I'm thinking of getting a new chair.

    What kind of chair do you have? Do you have a recommendation for a specific brand or kind of chair? What works for you?

    Thanks for your advice!

    I have an office chair with lumbar support, on casters, high back with lots of extra squishie in the cushion can sew for hrs with no problems (with body only, sewing is another topic)

    i use a drafting chair.

    it allows me to lower it for piecing at my sewing table and to raise it to frame quilting height.

    this way i can sit at my quilting frame for all the detailing work.

    Me too. Go to an office supply store and try out a few. I have arms on mine but some prefer without arms Some people like softer seats, some harder, find one that seems to fit you and is comfortable.

    I have an office chair I picked up for $10 at a resale shop. I has a seat height adjustment and a back adjustment, so I can get it to set just right for my back to be comfortable. I find I have to adjust it a couple times when I'm sewing as my back starts to squawk.

    I have a big office chair upstairs with all the bells and whistles that I thought I really loved. Since I am having to stay downstairs for awhile..been using an oversized hi-back parsons type chair with slight arms and very firm thick padded back and seat. It is going upstairs with me when I can navigate the stairs again. I put casters on because it is so comfortable.
