On the Hunt..

So if I am going to be serious about my sewing, or at least a little less crazy, I guess it is time to find a new chair. Yes, you heard me correctly. About 6 months back we moved into our new home, and ever since I have been sewing while sitting on this:

Hours and hours and hours of a sore bum have been spent while sitting on this chair. What can I say? I love my sewing nook so much, that I wanted the perfect chair to go with it. Since then, I have gotten so used to sewing while sitting on my kid’s Crayola stool, that I have just kind of forgotten about it.


The hunt is on, my eyes are peeled, and I am looking for that perfect chair. Preferably one I can refinish myself with a fabric seat cushion…

    You can have the one Great Grandma made on her own. It is an antique and so comfortable perfect for sewing. Only thing you will need to pay to have it shipped? I will take a picture for you and post it on fb. It needs tender loving care. ~Aunt Lynn

    ouch! my sewing “nook” is in the middle of our house…. our kitchen table, so i can see connor in the playroom at ALL times. So i sit on a kitchen chair…. i’ve always sat on a kitchen chair. i would say choose something sturdy, no wheels (so you don’t slide when using the foot pedal) and i liked a chair with a removeable cushion (cause inevitably, you are going to spill something on it, or it will be covered with tiny fabric fibers etc)
