Thankful Sewing Blog Tour

Hey sewists!  It is almost that time of year where I get to go Christmas crazy.  Before I can do that I need to slow it down a bit and remember to be thankful.  I was pretty excited to join in on the Thankful Sewing Blog Tour to do just that.  Each day this month a blog will share a thankful post.  Today is my turn.  There are so many things I am thankful for in regards to sewing which makes it hard to narrow the focus of this post.  With that, I thought a top 3 list was in order.

1) I am thankful for the friends and community that sewing has provided. I mean, for real, do you realize how awesome our community is?!  This is one of the most supportive groups.  From the Facebook groups to Instagram to Blogs, there is a wealth of information and a group of people who are so willing to share and learn from each other.  It goes beyond just sewing too.  I have seen several Facebook posts asking about culture-related fashions without the conversation being hurtful.  Just a bunch of sewists genuinely wanting to learn and accept one another.

2) I am thankful for the opportunities sewing has provided.  I am thankful that I have been able to work in the garment industry as a technical designer as well as a seamstress.  That time has taught me about myself and what kind of designer I want to be.  I have also picked up and improved my sewing a lot.  I am also thankful for the opportunity to be a pattern tester for several different indie designers.  This has taught me a lot about writing home sewing patterns that are good for all skill levels.

3) And finally, I am thankful that I can have a dedicated sewing space.  Granted, my husband is more inclined to believe that space is a necessity so that he doesn’t end up stepping on straight pins in the living room, but I am still grateful that we can provide that space for me.  Not everyone has that.

Those are my top 3 things I am thankful for that sewing has provided.  What are you sew thankful for?
