Hi all, so I have an odd quandary. I broke my neck and have several complications from it that i am still rehabbing. The problem is that while drafting patterns, I lean over the coffee table to get accurate measurements, but then I’m holding my neck up without support in a funny position for hours.
I thought about an easel, but they seem too rickety to be able to push on a ruler to hold the line straight while I draft.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to get a more upright angled work table? Or even advice on how to help with my injury so I can keep drafting and sewing longer without having to take ‘recharge’ breaks?
Thanks lovely ladies and gentlemen,
Cheers and Happy Sewing!
