Arrow Chairs – Sew4Home Mini Review
Have a seat. Let’s chat for a moment about your sewing set-up. As you sit, think about whether or not you’re comfortable. Is your back well supported? Is the height of your chair appropriate for the working level of your machine? Is your chair cute? Granted, that last question isn’t necessarily going to impact your posture and comfort, but having your chair covered in a fun, colorful fabric can certainly impact your mood!
We took a look at the Arrow Sewing Chairs available at Arrow/ Kangaroo Dealers exclusively from Janome Canada and were impressed with both the variety and features available at a very competitive prices.
Arrow Four Post Chairs
These chairs were an immediate favorite with the S4H team. The solid wooden design makes them very sturdy, but that stability doesn’t mean they sacrifice creativity. We loved the scalloped seat base edges on three of the chair design combos – just a super cute touch. But, of course, if sleek and simple is your preference, there’s an option for you as well. Choose from a white scalloped wood base with fabric featuring either novelty sewing notions or jumbo bright buttons; an aqua scalloped wood base with the novelty sewing notions fabric, or a straight cut oak base, again with the sewing notions fabric. Lift up the padded seat to reveal a hidden storage area for notions or patterns. Smart and space saving!
Good looking? Check! So, how about the comfort features. We liked how the wide back rest provided targeted lumbar support. The heavy duty casters on all four legs roll smoothly across most flooring surfaces, and we didn’t have any issues with them leaving marks on a hard floor. Each chair is rated to hold up to 250 pounds.
Finally, take note that the chair height is 22”. This particular chair is not adjustable, so make sure this is a height that will work with your sewing machine cabinet, table or counter.

Arrow Hydraulic Chairs
Not everyone in the S4H studio is a fan of “sitting still”, so they gravitated to the Arrow Hydraulic Chairs. With easy adjustable height controls and smooth rolling wheels, these resemble a traditional office chair… but with SEW much more style. The hydraulic base itself only comes in black, but you can can pair it with six different whimsical print fabrics or five rich solid colors. We were total fans of the super cute Sewing Cat’s Meow fabric. All the fabric selections are a durable, upholstery fabric – the same as used above on the Four Post Chairs.
We loved the seat storage on the Four Post Chairs, so we were delighted to see it on these Hydraulic Chairs as well. It’s a pretty unique feature for this type of chair design that can swivel side to side. Good idea, Arrow!
The base features five wheels with easy-roll casters. Cheap adjustable chairs often only have four, which can make moving more difficult. We had plenty of mobility around our sewing space.
The chairs raise and lower with fingertip lever control from approximately 18” – 22” and support up to 250 pounds.
