Sew Smart
The Ergonomics  of Healthy Quilting

   Gather your quilty friends for an entertaining and informative presentation. 

It's no secret that quilting can be a real pain in the neck, but it doesn't have to be. 

Healthy quilting includes:

  • the ergonomics of sewing, pressing, cutting

  • sewing room design and set-up

  • FMQ and longarm quilting posture

  • stretches designed for quilters neck, sore shoulders, backache

  • carpal tunnel syndrome prevention

  • the importance of hydration and movement

  • and other tips so we can sew smart to sew long! 

       In addition to being an obsessive quilter, I hold certifications in Ergonomics, Nutrition, Fitness, Home Economics, Arthritis Pain Management and Older Adult Training. See Bio       

 

Ask me about speaking to your guild, or providing a lecture at your next quilt show or conference. While I try to keep my site updated, it's best to verify availability with an email to rose@healthyquilting.com

   "Taking stock of my four days at Festival, and perhaps this was the

most important lecture

I went to"  Jenn

"Her presentation was entertaining as well as informative. I found Rose very easy to communicate with as well she has a lot of experience in both public speaking, quilting and many other skills."     Shirlee

Rose spoke about it in such detail and made it so specific and relevant to what we do .

 "You've already made one more quilter start taking better care of their health.     Thank you."

    "I very much enjoyed your talk at the F.O.Q. and it made me really think about how I work. I cut and sew at the kitchen table...so lots to think about! "

   "Many thanks to Rose Parr for the informative talk on keeping our bodies healthy so we can Quilt to 100 and beyond! So many good tips about small changes to make a big difference in the care of our most valuable sewing room asset - ourselves! "   Nancy, Haliburton

" thank you for delivering such a really useful lecture in Birmingham.  I’m already trying to put your stretches into daily use "
