|I sew standing up. I’m about 5’6” and sew at my serger and sew machine standing up at a laundry counter that is about 37” high. Sewing when standing makes it easy to get to iron board or to stop sewing for a while and do laundry or make beds etc. I seem to get more sewing time in when I sew standing. My little grand-DDs sew at my laundry counter, too, and do not have any trouble at all. Give it a try!
