    My favorite occasion is when I make something special for someone who is going through cancer. It is usually a seatbelt pillow for those with a medi-port for receiving chemo to keep the seatbelt from rubbing on the port area when inserted in the chest; a breast cancer pillow to keep the underarm from touching the breast area; or a drainage tube holder so the person doesn’t have to have the tube “bulb” pinned to their clothing. It is a glorious feeling to be able to do these things all throughout the year and not just for a holiday. All recipients are grateful and I am thankful that I can do this for them.

    I like to make things for Christmas, Halloween, birthdays and any time I can call a special day for someone that needs a pick me up or someone who needs to know they are loved. It is always a great feeling to see someone’s eyes light up when they know you took time to make something special just for them. Then the person knows they are special! It is a great feeling to know you created a special feeling in someone else. I also enjoy sewing for my grandkids. They enjoy all things created for them!

    love making Christmas itelms. love the FSL and lots of novelty items but always do shirts and home dec items. Need to get some great ideas for Summer and get started. Have done Valentines, St. Patty’s and have Easter all done too. bring on Summer!!!

  21. I’m new to machine embroidery. It seems like everyday is a great occasion to make some thing! I do however like to make gifts, so I would say the best occasions are birthdays of Family and Friends.

  22. Bev Plewa says:

    I like all holidays and until recently, I had only Christmas and Easter decorations. I have been creating home decorations for all holidays, even if it is only mug rugs. When I make something for me, I also make one and send to my Mom who lives in Florida.

  23. My favorite time to sew is when I have a group of people together and we all learn and laugh together. I love showing a student how to make something and then to see their face when it’s complete. I’m a school librarian and when I find the book and we complete the project, they are sold on reading more! Hey, for DIY and sewing!

  36. Karen says:

    My favorite occassion to sew for is ANY occassion that I can sew!! Any day that I can sew and be creative is a good day, I especially love sewing for people who really appreciate the love that goes into the sewing gifts that I give! And now my 4 year old grandson is learning to sew with me and that is a real joy as well! His first “all by myself” project was a thread bowl stitche from directions on Sew It All when Eric Drexler was a guest. When Eric did the thread bowl it was actually made with small scraps of fabrics that had been cut up, but I keep a container behind my sewing machine and save all of the threads that are cut off from various projects (especially the great embroidery threads) and my grandson always loves to look at all the great colors of the threads, so this was a perfect opportunity to let him use all of those colors! His thread bowl has now taken up residence on our fireplace mantel for all to enjoy!

  41. Patricia Wester says:

    My favorite time to sew is when I’m creating gifts for other people, regardless of the occasion. A little extra embroidery added to the project can take it from the “nice” to the extraordinary. People seem to really appreciate that little extra effort.

  42. Alicia Flint says:
