Sew Convenience Is Key

2 Dec

When I was a kid I remember my mom spending a lot of time preparing to sew a project by having to dig her sewing machine out of her closet, lug it to the dining room table and get her sewing supplies laid out, then make time to pack it all up so it wasn’t in the way – only to repeat it all again the next time she wanted to sew. NOT very fact, kind of a hassle! Lots of time setting up and packing up takes time away from the project and takes the GIDDY out of your enthusiasm! As a busy mom I know there’s no time for hassles like that – I just won’t do it. One of the things I found helpful was to set up a sewing “station”. Time is always an issue so convenience is key! By setting up this little area where I can leave my sewing machine and unfinished projects out, I can work on them when I have some time, even if it’s just 30 minutes!  If you’re worried about how it looks (which was certainly my mom’s concern) then keep it organized and clean up as you go.  You really don’t need a lot of room and having your tools ready and waiting for you will make all the difference in your motivation to keep sewing and enjoying it!
