Sewing Groups

I find that it's easy to finish a project when you have someone to hold you accountable to the project.

There are groups for everything - Sewing is not the exception. There is even a nation wide organization that one can join with local chapters. The American Sewing Guild. And for those that want to join a professional group there is the Association of Sewing and Design Professionals.

But what I love the most are small groups I love teaching the group I host once a month I forces me to pick a project and do it.

There are also Online groups to help keep you inspired and motivated.

And then there is a very unique sewing group that I've just come across during my 31DBBB adventure:

She puts out a questionnaire about a couple of items to sew and then they choose which the group will sew - then they sew and check in on her blog. I haven't had any spare time to join in. It looks like a wonderful group to jump on into!

Mayya - That's what I love - that you pick a few projects and then let people choose, which one the group will sew.

I've got my hands full with my sewing plus I've made most of the items you are featuring, They are great beginning sewing projects. But I have joined you followed you and bookmarked you - and I will join right in as soon as I get organized!

Thank you.
