My tip for squeezing in moments to sew
Nicole at Sister's Choice posted some suggestions encouraging us all to find a few moments (actually she said an hour) every day to sew. My addition to this would be, have several sewing machines! I'm serious. If you have 2 or 3 sewing machines, you can have them set up for 2-3 different projects, or 2-3 different stages of one project, and it's easier to accomplish something in 5 found minutes between other things if it's all set up and you can just sit down and stitch. I have 2 machines set up at the moment but am thinking of getting Britta's set up for a 3rd project. I cannot just sit down and sew, at least not for long. A 15-minute sewing break is a luxury. If I can chainstitch 10 pairs of fabric pieces in a few stolen moments, I can feel better about going back to what I MUST do.
