Dear Readers, this post is just something to take your mind away from the enjoyable yet frantic activities of the Holidays. This is not about your fashion-sewing style, but how you disburse the hours in your day to actually sew. Read on….
The Stolen Moments Sewer: I fall into this category. Without going into the gory details, my time is so precious (another way of saying that I’m uber busy – always) that my sewing time consists of mere moments stolen from other commitments to do some sewing. The moments can be as little as 3 minutes and no longer than 15 minutes. The Stolen Moments sewer achieves best results if focusing on one project at a time. She usually takes a month to finish a project marked “Quick & Easy”.
Night Owl Sewer: Mostly consists of career women and moms with young children. These sewers relish their night time solitude. They’ve also been known to start their project at night and wear it the next morning. I know, I used to one of them.
The Super-Organized Sewer: Her sewing time is always marked on a calendar and she becomes incommunicado during that time. The rest of us strive to be her.
The Project Starter: Starts out in a very organized fashion but gets easily distracted by new sewing ideas. Also known as the UFO Queen. Most of us have the UFO trait, don’t you think?
The Well Intentioned Collector: of fabric, patterns, gadgets, machines and everything new related to her favorite hobby. But never quite gets to actually sew. Also known as the Hoarder. We are all a little bit of the Collector.
