    Chair - what do you have?

    I am looking to purchase a new chair for my quilting room. Right now I just have a folding chair.

    I was just wondering what everyone else has for when they spend hours sewing? Does anyone use a backless stool with saddle seat, if so how do you like it?

    I use an adjustable office chair without arms. Sometimes I put a pillow in the seat to get up even higher than it adjusts to. It's advisable to get up and move around frequently, no sewing for hours or you will hurt yourself.

    DH bought me a Koala SewComfort chair at a LQS when she had an unbelievable sale-even cheaper after taxes than any online site. Actually, I placed the order and he drove over to pick it up and pay for it. It was easy to assemble and rolls like a dream over the clear carpet mat.

    I went to one of the office box stores (can't remember which) and test-sat all their chairs in my price range. Picked a comfy one that has three different adjustments: Height, back, and tilt. I spent a little over $100 for it (on sale).

    I have a Sew Comfort chair as well. Well, actually, 3 of them. one for each computer and one that raises up to stool height that I use at the machine and cutting table.

    I got a creeper chair that looks like a motorcycle seat for my longarm. Adjustable, rolls but what I would love to have is a drafting stool. Then I could get really high and see well.

    I have an adjustable office chair, and mine has arms. I like the arms, wouldn't give them up.

    I use a wooden backless stool. not real comfortable but fits nicely in my small sewing room. I have had two different office chair, one with arms, one without arms. too big for the area I had for it and cats would lay on it and get hair on it. I get up often to press and do laundry.

    I too have an adjustable height and tilt office chair. Mine doesn't have arms because for me they seem to get in the way...maybe because I get up a lot because my cutting table and pressing station are (on purpose) on the other side of the room. That way I have to leave my machine once in a while!

    I have an antique wooden, padded kitchen chair on wheels without arms on one side of my sewing table and a bench on the other side. I love the wheels and no arms for ease getting up and down alot.

    I love the arms...they do not get in my way, but when I get in my thinking mood I just sit back and relax...I love how the chair is adjustable so it works well with my treadle or my sewing table

    A stool would never give me any comfortable back support. I use a leather armed office chair which I love.

    I had a Koala chair too. Bought it when I bought my Koala sewing cabinet. Both way too expensive but anyway - the chair was very heavy and hard to push around in the carpeting provided in our apartment. After about 3 years, one of the thingys that held the wheels bent ( I think from running it over the carpeting ) Anyway, now I have an adjustable armless office chair with a very taut mesh back to let the air through. It's mostly made of a strong plastic, except for the seat and I love it. Got it at Staples. It's light enough for me to push back and forth while sitting in it. Fits me like a T.
