I watched the tip about using erasers to  give your machine a slight slant and that's okay but

I use my rubber door stops which are slanted in more degrees than the eraser and I use two of

them under the back of the machine.  You can see your work perfectly and a great advantage is

that the angled light seems brighter and your shoulders can relax.  We're supposed to enjoy our

sewing experience afterall!!!!

Thanks Cissy!

Gonna try that as my shoulders just burn.  If it does not work, everyone needs and occasional door stop LOL.

Cissy, I never would have thought of tilting the machine.  Thanks.

I must try this as my neck and shoulder aches are really slowing me down.  I finally got bed risers for my cutting table and that has helped a lot, can cut a lot longer at one time now.

I'm excited to try this tip! Sounds great!  I have also found if I lower my chair a bit that seems to help also.

Just be careful; my Bernina tipped right off the table, bent the thread holder and had to have it replaced.  Maybe remove the tilting apparatus when no sewing.
