2015 will be a challenging and exciting year for me–filled with learning new things and meeting new people. I am really looking forward to it. The future is unknown but it is not without a plan. There is nothing like a good set of goals and a plan on how to get there. Today I am sharing my goals, plans, and intentions for Sew Travel Inspired in 2015. I will open up the forum to hear your ideas and requests.
My first goal is around my 2015 posting schedule. I will post three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I set a relaxed schedule for myself so I will have time to tweak the website. I want to have time to write good posts and tutorials so they will be clear and concise.
My second goal is to learn and teach something new every month. even though I have been sewing for almost 60 years (gasp!) there is still so much for me to learn. In 2015 I want to master buttonholes. I want to learn to sew fur and faux leather. I have a library filled with sewing books that I have not made a single project from. I will definitely be sewing my library in 2015. I want to learn different methods to adding texture to my projects. I want to learn to sew great bags, purses and totes. The list of things I still have to learn is so long that one a month will not even scratch the surface.
My last goal is to design and share digitally with you one new pattern a month. This involves a huge learning curve on the technical side alone as well as a stretch for my designing and creative talents. I think this will be the most exciting and difficult of my goals. My first pattern will be a child’s apron that I hope to have out to testers by the middle of this month. I know it is a simple pattern but digitizing and grading the pattern are proving to be a challenge.
I would love for you to share your creative goals in the comments below. Also let me hear from you what you would like to see in Sew Travel Inspired in the coming year.
