  1. Susan says:

    Yes, I plan ahead for Christmas sewing. I’ve already picked out patterns for my 2 great nieces for 2 smocked dresses and a quilted jacket. I plan to start those soon. I usually start embroidering Christmas cards early, too, so I get those done in time.

  2. Carol K E says:

    I just saw that there are 19 Fridays left til Christmas. Since I am finishing an advent calendar for our grandchildren, I had best get to it. But it will most likely be finished and in the mail last minute.

  3. Dorothy Urberg says:

    Since I have 4 birthdays right before Christmas to plan for, I tend to wait till the last minute for Christmas, this yr there will be a new grandbaby arriving too right before. :)

  4. Cathy Van Daalwyk says:

    I find even when I start early there is never enough time simply because I always find more projects that i like :-)

  5. Libby says:

    I always plan ahead, but often my plans change if I wait to long to get supplies or something comes up – I always think I have more time than I really do!

  6. Derenda Laws says:

    I try to plan ahead, but then life gets in the way of my sewing plans. So I pretty much fly by the seat of my pants. I usually get most if not all of it done even though I have found myself sewing at 3:00 in the morning on Christmas Eve.

  7. Jo Ann Rust says:

    Definitely, fly by the seat. If it doesn’t get done then we didn’t need it.

  8. kathryn friedel says:

    There are soooo……… many great ideas out there to pick from it’s hard to decide, so I wait until the last minute. :)

  9. Becky Hill says:

    I feel like I am planning a year in advance. I like to have most of my holiday projects that are gifts be done by June. We travel to visit family during the summer that is when I deliver my Christmas gifts to my family.

  10. Cindy Schultz says:

    I try to plan but it does not always work out and I am always scrambling at the last minute trying to come up with some ideas.

  11. Cindy Kasten says:

    I start early, spending hours planning what to make, what materials to use, etc. Then I make a list, hang it up, and finally start at the last minute. Sometimes I actually follow my original plans.

  12. Marie c says:

    No matter how early I start I still fall behide,lol.

  13. Krista G says:

    I have good intentions, but always end up with things being done last minute

  14. Stephanie Coulon says:

    I always have good intensions of planning ahead but its such a busy time of the year. I do my best!

  15. Donna G says:

    Homemade gifts are always nice. Time flies and Christmas is almost here again! Good luck everyone and get sewing!

  16. Helen Foster says:

    I kinda think about it early, then I scramble once I finally decide on projects – usually start in October.

  17. Susan says:

    I start planning about now but sometimes end up sewing on Christmas Eve!

  18. Marianne Myrick says:

    I do lots of planning, buying supplies and thinking about what I will make and for whom. Then I end up sewing like crazy or apologizing for the gift being late.

  19. Kathy Scoggins says:

    I plan but usually don’t start sewing until November or December.

  20. kbo says:

    Every year, I mean to be ahead of the holiday season. Then tick-tock time flies and soon I’m hustling to get projects done.

  21. Debbie Chenoweth says:

    I try to plan ahead, but end up rushing at the last minute.

  22. Susan F says:

    I have excellent intentions; however, …… ( that says it all).

  23. Betty Hatch says:

    I always start early as you never know what curve balls life will throw you. Plan and be prepared, be prepared for the blessings of each day. Life is sew short.

  24. Kathy McCurdy says:

    Yep. I plan. That’s about as far as I get!

  25. Janet Evans says:

    Do I plan ahead – yes, I gather ideas. Do I implement them early (I wish). But I see by other comments, I am not alone in waiting until the last minute :) I promise myself each year that I will do better, but I never seem to follow through with that.

  26. Valerie A. says:

    I prefer to wait until late fall to start Christmas sewing when it feels like Christmas time, but Linda Lum DeBono’s “Sew Merry and Bright” book’s cover makes me want to start now. I would enjoy making those projects for gifts.

  27. kim says:

    Last year, I had a plan and a list of what to sew and for whom. Life and work happened and it delayed my sewing so only a few people got their original gifts. The rest got store bought gifts.

  28. Gwendolyn Stoudmire says:

    I always plan ahead. I start my sewing around in September. I really wish I could plan to start earlier.

  29. Evelyn says:

    I plan ahead and then put it off till tomorrow and ultimately rush to finish at the last minute.

  30. Fran says:

    Make lots of plans run out of time.

  31. debra merrill says:

    As this is my very first year sewing, I already have runners in the “mistake” pile. I guess this counts as preparing ahead even though the binding looks like ripple chips and the fusible batten peeled off when I folded the runner in half. Plan ahead so I can make them over and over again!

  32. Cyndy lacey says:

    I am definitely a fly by the seat of my pants kinda gal. I may buy thing ahead but forget until the last minute.

  33. Kim Lambertz says:

    I plan loosely, try to get inspired early, but crunch time comes in November when I usually am furiously making/shopping to meet mailing deadlines! I like to get the Christmas idea books/mags ahead of time in October to get inspired!

  34. Judy Dugan says:

    I fly by the seat of my pants, I work best under pressure.

  35. Nan says:

    Plan ahead. Already contemplating and picking out patterns. If I waited until the last minute, no one would get any gifts!

  36. Sandy McAvan says:

    Love starting a new project or idea.

  37. Therese Ruff says:

    I plan ahead, now need to learn to see ahead as well.

  38. Linda Barnes says:

    I always try to plan ahead, but always seems I fall behind. I see something I want to try and there goes my plan of attack. LOL

  39. Shirley Holmberg says:

    Although I usually have many gift ideas and intentions of starting early, I always seem to fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants and finish at the last minute.

  40. Nancy King says:

    I know I should start early but normally fly by the seat of my pants….

  41. Theresa Nuehring says:

    I try to follow pattern but if something does not seem right to me I make my adjustments and go from there. I also note on pattern why and what did to adjust pattern
