Since I am doing my marathon sewing/piecing right now, I got out my slanted stand thingie my brother-in-law made for me years ago. It was actually made for a different machine that was not quite as wide as this one, but it still works fine. I can sew for longer periods of time without hunching over my machine and getting a sore neck & shoulders.
Yes, I know you can use those ugly rubber door stops at the back of your machine, but this "Janome baby" of mine is heavy and big (Janome 6500P) and I want it to stay safe and the weight evenly distributed.
If you have a handy man in your house (or you have your own "pink" tool set), maybe you'd like to make one.
Can you tell how easy it is to see where your stitching, instead of hunching over? I can actually scoot my sewing chair up close enough and sit back in it to get some back support.
Mine is long enough that I can keep my small clipping scissors or my ....(shall I say it??) ....seam ripper... on the RH side of the plexiglass.
Simple, yet very effective! That's 1/4" thick plexiglass and two pieces of hardwood, not quite 1 inch square and wood screws. Knowing my brother in law, he used what he had in his shop.
What are some of your sewing room gadgets that make your sewing easier and more enjoyable for you?
