Hello <<First Name>>
We're back after what was a fabulously relaxing festive period with family and friends. I'm so thrilled to welcome you into our little online community for another year of sewing support and fun!
As we start a new year, it's got me thinking about new things to try. I usually set myself a couple of sewing goals - be it a technique to try or a specific project for the year ahead. A few years ago it was to teach myself how to embroidery (successfully completed thanks to Aimee's excellent book), last year was to make myself a t-shirt (a total disaster and I'm yet to try again).
It's easy to get caught up in the massive amount of things yet to learn - thanks Pinterest! It can be hard to remember that your sewing machine can really only take one stitch at a time and that you don't need to rush along your journey to try and learn it all in one hit.
Sewing has really taught me a lot about patience. It wasn't too long ago and I really only got to sew in 10 minute chunks; things took at least a week or more to finish. But by being patient and sticking with doing things in tiny baby steps those little bits of time eventually resulted in something fabulous that gave me creative fulfilment as well as a huge sense of accomplishment beyond a folded washing pile or a clean sink full of dishes.
I simply love to sew and I'm so very keen to pass along the skills and techniques; along with that same feeling of chest busting pride, as you start your own sewing journey. I look forward to meeting you along the road.
Happy Sewing ♥ Sarah
