    Somebody posted about the doorstops under the sewing machine to change the level. Well I spent $1.67 each for 3 of them at Walmart. It really works. I sewed all afternoon & my neck & shoulders don't hurt like they use to. So if you have any doubts try it. I think you will be amazed at the change. Thank you dear friend that posted this. I can't thank you enough. Deb

    It makes seeing what you're sewing much easier , too . I got that tip about a year ago and have been doing it ever since :thumbup: Annie

    Some people have a wedge for their machines . I don't have a link for that . I just bought 2 packs of rubber door stops . I stack 2 on top of each other . If your machine bounces , this will stop that too ! Annie

    My doorstops are 1 1/2". I didn't stack them, just spread them out under the back of machine.

    That's fine . It just depends on your preferences . I needed mine a little higher . Want to hear something funny ? Before Christmas my 18 yr old grandson , comes in my sewingroom . Looks at my machine tilted and asked what happened to it ! I told him " nothing " . I told him it was just tilted . Poor thing couldn't figure it out ! Just hilarious :lol: Annie

    My friend in Lexington NC told me about them and it makes it so much easier on my wrists. Glad you found out about it.

    I used door stops until I got my sit inside the cabinet set up. Cant use them now but they do work well.

    Just scroll back to the top of this post . We're discussing using rubber door stops for tilting our sewing machines . It makes it much easier to see what you are sewing . Annie

    A while back one of our ladies posted about a stand you could get to change the level of your sewing machine so that it is easier on your neck & shoulders. It elevates the back up. Well as these are rather expensive her husband saw it & went home & made her one. She also told us about using doorstops to do the same thing. I can't remember the title of the orginal post but I proved how good it does work.
