Just wondering or--inquiring minds want to know

I have a few questions for you.  Hope you have time to answer.  I have my answer's ready but I really want to see your's first.
  1. What is it about sewing that really pushes your creative button?
  2. Do you buy fabric on line or do you prefer to see and feel the fabric?
  3. Where do you sew?  Do you have your own sewing space?
  4. In this coming year, what new skill do you want to learn? doesn't need to be a sewing skill.
  5. Do you have plans to add a new sewing machine to your collection?


  1. I follow you because I want to learn how to sew. I haven't even taking the machine out of the box yet...that's how intimidating this is!

    So I can't really answer your questions beyond that.


  2. 1. Ummm....not sure. I guess the fabric, but according to what I have stacked in must not be pushing my buttons fast enough.
    2. I like to feel it, but if I've seen it somewhere, and find it cheaper online, I order online. I usually order from the same places because I know they have good quality fabric.
    3. I do have my own sewing room, and I love it. I just wish it was bigger, but it's much better than some places I've had to sew through the years. LOL
    4. I honestly haven't thought about it. I just want to get some projects finished that I intended to do at the end of last year.
    5. NO more machines for me right now. I just got a coverstitch machine, and learning to use it is my goal. So far, I love it.

    This was fun! You should post this on the forum!

  3. #1 - The colors, the textures, of fabrics inspire me.

    #2 - I am a touch feely and have a real difficulty buying fabric on line. Right now I want some black coating. I just can't imagine not feeling the coating before buying it. There is plenty on line but I will wait till I can hit my fave fabric store about 300 miles away.

    #3 - I am blessed to have a dedicated sewing space after many years of making do.

    #4 - This year I want to make some slipcovers, a totally new process for me. I also would like to learn to tat and crochet.

    #5 - No new machines on the horizon right now. If I see something worthwhile at a yard sale I will pick it up, otherwise, fugetabotit.

  4. 1. Children inspire me to create.
    2. I prefer to see and feel the fabric, but I usually end up buying online.
    3. I ham very blessed to have my own room for sewing!
    4. I hope to learn new embellishment techniques in 2011.
    5. I would love to have a new machine, but it's not a *need*, it's a "want" so I doubt I will get a new machine anytime soon.

    Happy New Year!

  5. 1. I love fabric and choosing ways to use it.
    2. I do buy fabric on line, but my preference is to feel and see the fabric. I have a couple of favorite quilt shops I love to stop in at and also like Pacific fabrics, which I plan to stop by today on my lunch break.
    3. I have a sewing and crafting room now that my children are all out of the house. I still bring my machine down to the table once in a while.
    4. My husband bought me a new machine a couple of months ago, a major piece broke on my old "new" machine. I love it but still use my old workhorse machine that I have had since the 70's on occasion.
    Have fun sewing, I am sure you have a list of projects for the coming months, what do you have planned?
