Visit Your Local Dealer

I have been working on restoring my 'new' treadle sewing machine (see posts below).  So, that's why I haven't posted lately.  But, I do promise to show you some 'after' pics real soon.  Today's post is to hopefully help you get in the sewing mood.  One stop for motivation that I can speak to is visiting your local sewing machine dealer for ideas and motivation to sew.  I visit my local Baby Lock dealer at Zede's Sewing Studio for monthly club meetings where we are told about new classes coming up, new products and then a show-and-tell from club members showing their latest wares.  This is the part I get the most motivation from--seeing what other people have made.  It makes me want to get back in the sewing room and whip something up (not that I could do it too quickly, if you know what I mean!). 

If you don't have a local dealer you 'deal' with, then look in your phone book and call up some places to find out if they have some sort of monthly meeting of some kind to showcase their products, classes they may provide and some nifty new notions you didn't know about about!  What is one thing that movtivates you to sew?
