OK it is time for me to replace the chair I use to sit on while I sew. I have been using an old secretary type chair that rolls around on the plastic thing that covers my carpet. It does have a small back but I don't lean back in it to sew. I don't like arms on my chair. I like to get up a lot when I am sewing as I need exercise. So I am up and down to cut, iron, etc.

Just thought I would take a poll as I begin to research a new chair. Please help me with my decision.
Many thanks,
Kathy

I use a secretarial chair without arms as well - my carpet is so worn I don't even need a plastic mat! I need to swivel from my sewing machine to my computer often so I like having my chair on wheels. The most important function for me is adjustability (is that a word?) - I like to sit fairly high above my machine. In the days of Huntsville schools I always put a pillow on top of the chair to sew...those were the good ol' days!

I absolutely LOVE my red Bernina chair!! The Horn company also makes them in other colors, too. I’ve had my chair for about 5 years—and it’s just as comfy as the day we brought it home!!

I used an armless secretary's chair until it wore out. I went to my local office supply store and sat in all of the chairs deciding on the best one for me and bought it. Now I have one of those vintage reproduction chairs that I bought strictly because I love the look of it, not as practical but it's so darn cute!

I use an office chair that rolls from computer to sewing machine to serger.

I, too, have the red Bernina chair. Brought it home in the trunk of my (red) car from an all day sewing event at the Bernina store, over 8 years ago.
What an improvement over the small, straight-back vintage sewing chair I had been using!

I use a high stool. I'm short, so in most chairs I'm on the edge anyway. I found a fold up stool at Walmart which works well for me 'cause my sewing room is very small (& cluttered!). Often I find that standing is the most comfortable.

I have a couple of office chairs, but I may buy one from a sewing cabinet company when my room is finally finished. I’ve read good things about them.
