Plan Your Someday!

I have big news for you today – something fun in our future.  I’m very excited about it all, and I hope you will be, too.

Do you have projects you’d like to complete someday?  Do you put off sewing projects, only to find someday  never comes?

For your home decor sewing projects, your someday is coming soon!  January of 2016 begins your someday.

In my recent survey, many of you said your home needs window treatments of some kind.  Since holidays are upon us, we’ll take the remaining time this year to plan and prepare.

We’ll begin forming groups for window treatment projects in January.  That’s right.  We’re going to sew together.  I’m signing on as your cheerleader (and coach)!

Your Someday

We’ll start by forming individual groups, such as

“Drapery Panel Populous:  Someday  in 5 days, only 1-2 hours a day”

“Roman Shades Society:  Someday  in 7 days, only 1-2 hours a day”

I’ll add groups for other projects you’d like to complete.  I’ll be your encourager!  🙂

When you sign up for a project group, I’ll add you to a special email list where you’ll get daily encouragement, instruction, and help where you need it.  Facebook groups will be formed so you can all discuss your projects and ask me (and the others in your group) questions about what you’re working on.  Group size will be limited, so start planning now.

Won’t this be helpful for getting your New Year’s decorating resolutions done?

Spread the word.

Gather your friends.

Get ready for Someday.

For now, all you need to do is decide what project you’d like to start first – drapery panels or Roman shades.  Collect your fabric and thread, and wait for me to say “Go” after we turn our calendar page to the new year.

Craftsy sewing classes aren’t required, but they provide all the details you need for your home sewing projects.  Craftsy will have a huge sale next week – better deals than I’ve ever seen.  While I’ll be your cheerleader, Craftsy classes give you detailed instructions and guide you through excellent video demonstrations.

I’m not saying you must sign up for a Craftsy class.  You can totally join your project group and use the tutorials on my site for your project how-to’s.  I do have to say, though, the Craftsy instructors give you downloadable worksheets for figuring yardage for fabric purchases.  There’s also a download for computing pleat measurements for pleated draperies.  Those are very helpful – worth the sale price of the class all on their own!

I encourage you to enroll in the classes for all the projects you’d like to do in 2016.  Make it a Christmas gift to yourself.  🙂

Start planning now for your home transformation in 2016.  We’ll do it together!  Head on over to Craftsy and check out their classes.  Add classes to your wish list so you’ll be ready for the sale next week.  Here’s a great place to start.

What projects would you like to complete Someday  in January?  Valances?  Table skirts and toppers?  Bedding?

    You have come up with a great idea! I felt instant relief with hope of completing a few projects! Corded chair cushions for 2016! 1 down and three to go ( stuffed in a bag!). Your tutorials taught me how to make my lovely new corded pillows for our livingroom. Many thanks for all that you do, are and give to this reader!

      Thank you, Ellen. I’m glad this will help you get those projects done. I’ll add corded pillows to the list of groups after we’re moving along with the window treatments. 🙂
