In these unprecedented times, there are some things you can control, like spending down time in a constructive way.
Wherever you are, we are praying that you and yours are safe and well. While most everyone is housebound or, at the very least practicing social distancing, make the most of this time. Here are five things machine embroiderers can do:
1. Make an Easter Project
2. Get Organized
I have spent the past week cleaning and organizing my sewing area. It was long overdue. Having everything in it’s place makes embroidering so much more fun. Instead of wasting time looking for things, I can now spend that time actually making something.
3. Clean Your Equipment
4. Get Started on Christmas Projects
It’s never too early to get started. Start thinking about project ideas. Even if you do not want to start creating them, you can get projects prepped. That way, you can just sit down and sew when you are ready.
5. Learn a New Technique
Now is a good time to try something new. Would you like to learn how to applique? How about stitch with a wing needle, create a mitered border, embroider a candle or towel? Not only are there blogs for these techniques, the blogs link to some great videos that Bonnie has created.
