Stand And Sew!

Apparently, I'm not the only one who has trouble sitting for long periods of time.  There was recently a discussion on the SAQA group that involved quite a bit of discussion about this common problem. For me, that's a dual problem.  With my arthritis, it hurts to stay in any position for long. 

With my Restless Leg Syndrome sometimes I can't sit at all.  So, I've come up with a situation that works for me.  I raised the table on some 2 X 4s.  It's not too pretty and not quite finished off yet - it needs to be more secure so it doesn't fall off the 2 X 4s -  but it works and does the job! 

I can stand for hours and it makes my free motion stitching so much easier! My design wall is just behind me here so I can simply reach the next piece off the wall and sew!

I still have an older machine set up on the far side of this table if I want to sit and sew for awhile.

  1. Great idea! Right now, I don't get to sew for long periods of time. So, can't worry about it now ;).

    But seems like a nice trick for you.
