I wound up getting a $60 chair on amazon. I took all the feedback, get a chair that went up to 300 pounds, thinking it’ll last longer. From prior comment, it seems the less weight they support, the cheaper they are. Love the Arrow chair but didn’t want to spend the money on it. Got an Ottlite light instead.

I have one similar to this one:

I wouldn't trade it for anything! It's adjustable, super comfortable and I love it. If you spend a lot of time sewing I think a good chair is a must.

I have bought "sewing chairs", office chairs, and used a used office chair....by far the best chair is the used chair I bought at an office supply store. It is dusty rose and was replace by a large company because they changed their color. I did pay $100 for it which caused me to scratch my head and wonder about my sanity but the sales rep told my it originally was about $800 yikes! and it has every sort of adjustment you can think of on it. It is very sturdy and stable and comfortable. I used to use it to slide along my concrete floor when doing quilting on my little midarm long arm. still in good shape. The other two chairs not so much....I really need to replace them soon.

I really don't know. I'd get something you can actually sit in before you buy it.

Best chair I've have for sewing was taken off my neighbors porch, that they were getting rid of. It's an swiveling office chair, that goes up and down. No idea how old it is, but I'd love to have a couple more.

I have one, black with sewing items on it in colors. The lid lifts from the back rest side. odd but true. i love mine. i splurged on it. i'm sure there are office chairs out there that may even be better but I am very happy with my Arrow chair. i got it through AllBrands site. I'd miss their sale but contacted them about buying one at that price and they ended up giving me at sale price. so yes, I'm happy.

True...I purchased an office chair from Staples . . The seats are all different depths, height adjustments, features etc etc. I think I paid $300 ....well worth the comfort dollars.

There might be a label under the seat or under the legs.

I have an ergonomic backless chair. It is made to keep your spine active. It is what I have used for years. Hope you find the right chair.

I've had trouble with the office chair with wheels. If I position it just so and try to sit down, sometimes the chair goes backward and I end up on the floor. Anyone else having this trouble?
