So here I am, all fired up to get going on my wool coat, and I will be leaving town for one week on Saturday. Which means I will only have a few hours tonight and Thursday night to commit to sewing. So no major coat progress until the end of the month.
Knitters and crocheters have it good. They can pack up a couple skeins of yarn, needles, and a pattern in their handbag and work on their garments just about anywhere. Unfortunately, sewing projects are not quite so portable.
I suppose I’ll pack a few sewing reference books to read during the flight and during down-time when I’m at my in-laws for Thanksgiving next week. I never tire of Couture Sewing Techniques. This would also be a great time to really dive into Just Pockets. I recently ordered used copies of Couture: The Art of Fine Sewing and Sensational Silk; I’ll cross my fingers that at least one of them arrives before the weekend.
Before I head to the airport on Saturday, I am going to drop off my sewing machine at the Pfaff dealer for regular maintenance. These tune-ups usually last a week, which is an unbearably long period of time to be sans machine. But getting this done while I am out of town means I won’t even miss it.
How do you keep up with sewing while traveling?
