To be honest I love the idea of making napkins but I just haven't gotten around to it, which is a familiar theme for me – So many darn projects and not enough time! Napkins though, would be an adorable gift for a house warming or for someone who recently redecorated a kitchen or the like. I'm always on the hunt for quick sewing ideas I think napkins is one of those, I mean it's just straight lines!
Which brings me to my topic for today: Christmas in July (or June etc). Ugh, hate thinking about it, but this year I really want to make more things for the holiday gift giving and napkins and place mats would be so perfect!
As you may know (or not) I run a sewing group called the Denver Sewing Collective (off hours of course). It's an awesome group of women and men and, really it's more like a sewing support group than anything. Sometimes we lug our machines to sew and then we end up chatting the entire night away. Anyway, this year I want to schedule a meetup that is all about sewing holiday gifts and napkins, place mats and easy projects like napkins and place mats are on the list. Of course now I need to get the fabric….
Do you sew a lot of gifts for the holidays? If so would you have any advice for me on planning my meetup? I'm thinking July, but any time would work except not October or November. Too much going on in those months. Anyway your advice is appreciated!
