What Are Your 2011 Quilt Goals?

Even though quilting is a hobby for most people, it is still important to set goals. Now that you have organized your sewing room and made a gift to a worthy quilter, you are ready to set goals.  Here are some suggestions:

  • Take a class to learn a new skill.
  • Exhibit in a quilt show.
  • Join a quilt guild.
  • Finish what you start.
  • Design an original quilt pattern
  • Teach a class
  • Sell a quilt

What are your 2011 goals? With a little planning and fortitude, 2011 will be the best year ever.

Share With a New Quilter

If you are organizing your sewing room this month, you will definitely run across things you no longer need. One thing is universal about quilters is that we love to shop. Sometimes we forget we already bought something and end up with two of the same thing. Sometimes that fabric we loved in the store looks hideous in our sewing room.

Don’t horde. Give it away! Although non-quilters believe quilters make everything from scraps, in reality, quilting is a very expensive hobby. A new quilter is always grateful for anything that helps her with her new hobby. If you don’t know a new quilter, make  a gift to a quilt guild or a school.

Start the new year by sharing with a fellow quilter. Your uncluttered sewing room will make you more productive, and you will have helped spread the art of quilting!
