So I've been sewing at a small Ikea dining room table and matching chairs for 5 years now. Before that I sewed at my desk (which is no longer in existence). I recently got a Sew Steady extension table for my Baby Lock Elizabeth. It seems like it is higher than the extension table for my old Singer and I find myself getting all hunched up and pulling my shoulders up to my ears when I am free motion quilting. I don't notice it so much when I'm piecing.
So this leads me to believe that it is time to invest in a new chair. I don't really want to get a different table because this is my dining room table I'm using and I don't have space for an extra table. What is your sewing set up like? Do you, like me, sew at your dining room table, or do you have your own sewing room? What kind of table do you use (always good to know for future reference!) and what kind of chair do you have? What do you love and hate about your sewing furniture?
I'd like to buy a new chair this fall sometime so any input would be appreciated! I should mention that I'm rather short (my driver's license says 5'1", although the doctor recently told me I'm maybe not even 5'0" - they are measuring wrong. ha) so I am probably looking for an adjustable chair to get myself positioned above my work area! Any input is appreciated!
