    I thought I had better pass this little tidbit on. If any of you have the rolling office chairs for your sewing chair beware! I discovered that once you clean all the thread out of your casters your chair turns into greased lightning! Just be sure you have your brakes in good working condition or you just may end up going through a wall! Guess what I did today????

    Another word of caution--don't stand on it and think it's going to stay in one spot!

    Sewjoyce, No,No,No. Broken bones and surgery are no fun. Get a small folding step stool with a handle to hold.

    OK.. first off.. how big IS your sewing room that you can get that much momentum up? or perhaps how thin are the walls? Second.. how do you feel about signing up for the demolition derby? Please send your address as we are designing a special seatbelt for you with the attached Shoulder strap. (just kidding)..

    I love it. There are no mistakes, only oppurtunities.

    Pictures please, we need proof! :lol:

    Oh my goodness, I hope you laughed like crazy after you went through the wall. Most of all, I hope you didn't get hurt in any way.

    Thanks for the warning! :lol:

    Thank goodness you weren't hurt. Also everyone be careful it you have hardwood floors. The chair will roll away from you leaving you on the floor and it's not a pertty picture getting up.
