Get the lighting right

Position your sewing table in front of a window to maximise the natural light, and invest in a good desk lamp for evenings. An adjustable swivel chair will make sitting at your sewing machine extra comfortable. 

Find this desk at OKA and a similar swivel chair from Retrouvius. Head to Country Elements for a metal task light. John Lewis sells great-value sewing machines.
