Whether you feel energized for a new year of sewing or completely stuck with your current projects, it’s always fun to make a sewing resolution as the year winds to a close. Especially this year, since it was a doozy.
Your sewing goal can be very ambitious, something slow and steady, or maybe even general sewing housekeeping or machine maintenance.
My sewing resolution is to make a rain poncho for biking here in Portland. I have my fabric all set and ready for 2017! Here are some more goals from the team, to get you started:
“My sewing goal for 2017 is to create a well-fitted, personalized wardrobe that I look and feel my best in.” -Delaney, Product Manager
“In 2017, I really want to work on sewing more separates and accessories, such as hats and bags. I also want to keep up my momentum of sewing at least one thing a week.” -Anna, Designer
“I’m a very project-minded sewist and have a backlog of projects to make. In 2017, I’d love to actually sew up a killer pair of gingham cigarette pants, a neutral midi skirt, another Oslo cardigan, and tons of bralettes.” -Katie, Producer
If you’re more project oriented like Katie, we’ve got something fun planned for the beginning of 2017 to motivate you to meet your goals.
