I sew out of my home for a living. I can find nothing on calories burned while sewing. I also quilt by hand.

Does someone know how many calories burned for machine sewing and for hand sewing/quilting?

Thank you

It will be great if fatsecret records sugar total in the food journal
It can record sugar, you just need to set it up in your setting. You can also track sodium, fat, protein, carbs, net carbs, cholesterol, fiber and calories.
