Another thing that helps is to change the angle of your sewing machine, if it is
a portable put two door jams under tha back if your machine. You can do the
same with an industrial machines with an angled 2 x 4. WHen we sit a t the
machines usually they are at the wrong heights so we hunch of the machines.
This has really helped me. You can do it with your serger as well. --- In
