Helena and I haven’t had a chat on our podcast for a while. Turns out we’ve both had a case of missing sewjo…and missing blogjo, not to mention podjo. (Sorry, seems I’ve got a case of overkilljo happening right now.) But we finally got our act together and compared notes on some of the things that get in the way of sewing, and some strategies for getting back in the saddle. Why don’t you have a listen to our latest Clothes Making Mavens podcast and join in the conversation?
What about you? What causes your desire to sew go out the window? And what revives your sewjo? We’d love to feature your stories on our next podcast so leave a comment here, or better yet, leave us a voicemail at (+1)-401-64MAVEN or visit our webpage that will record your message using your computer’s built-in microphone.

Oh, winter is my Sewjo-Killer. Last year I made the mistake of sewing apparently quick and easy gifts for EVERYONE, and that sort of sewing killed my desire to sew anymore until March! I am really bad at knitting so that’s not an option either.
Watching The Great British Sewing Bee or assorted costume dramas is a good way to jumpstart the sewjo. And organzing that fabric and patternstash.
I tend to stop doing much of anything between the new year and about March, too. Spring seems to be the great motivator…maybe something about sewing up quick summer garments? All good suggestions, here…I’ll mention them in our next podcast. 🙂
