Sewing focus for 2012

I decided not to make a list of resolutions (sewing or otherwise!) this year, but the nagging thought about “what do I want to focus on next” has been swirling around in my head for weeks now. And by George, I think I’ve finally got it!  In a word, excellence. I need some more of it, and I want to give more of it to my students. I want to “re-learn” the Japanese tailoring techniques taught to me by Judy Barlup. I want to perfect my skills at making jeans – both fitting and construction. I want to try my hand at making men’s dress slacks. I want to enter some contests. I want some of my students to enter design programs, and win competitions, and sew things they never dreamed they were capable of. I want 2012 to be the year of “go big or go home”.

So let’s do it! What do you want to rock in your sewing studio this year?

 

Happy sewing!

    1. Sew a top I’ll actually wear in public.
    2. Maybe sell my first item.

    Are you going to SewExpo?

    EVERYTHING! Just started my blog, twitter, Facebook and etsy. I usually start things like this then quit, I’m at that quitting point but I’m seeing it thru this time!
