I am really interested in buying a new sewing chair. I would appreciate any recommendations that you all have tried or heard of that are good for support of lower back and comfort. Have you all seen or tested any at the quilt shows?
Look for a good quality ergonomic office "task" chair. They have a lot of adjustments to fit your body shape and size. They usually come with arms, but the arms can be easily removed.
I don't like arms on my sewing or office chairs (they get in my way) so they come off right away and are tossed. Wish they would make the chairs without the arms for a little less money! But realistically, that isn't going to happen.
I would not get a regulation "sewing chair". I was lucky enough to get an office chair from the company I was working for for $6. It was made to be comfortable art a desk all day. I would not give it up for anything in the world. I think you will find them much more comfortable than any "sewing chair". You might garage sales.

I bought a medical stool, it can go higher then a regular stool and it swirls around nicely. It's perfect for me
I'd be grateful if you'd take a look at the sewing chair. I make. Each one is custom made for the person ordering with exactly the right seat height and seat length, headrest height, arms (if you choose them) and other features. Perhaps the best feature is the lumbar support and comfort of my sewing chairs which I've spent years developing. I use seven rotating, flexible back braces that adjust to your back every time you sit down. You can see all my chairs at www.parkerconverse.com.
Parker, this indeed looks like a very comfortable chair. However, for sewing at a machine, I need one that does not rock, but swivels.
Parker. I went to your website and your chairs are truly the most beautiful I have ever seen. Worthy of being called art. However, the price is extreme. $3700 for a chair, and if you want arms, over a $1000 more?
