    I love this list. I have experienced at least half of them....and the rest...now that I know about them, will be ready for them! I can add one that most will never experience. Being in the Deep South & using a converted garage as a sewing room created a unique experience. And, yes, I do have a window ac unit that is pulling out a lot of moisture.

    If your sewing area feels too humid, it probably is. Buying a dehumidfier before your stash & cotton thread starts to mold works better than trying to get the mold out. Glad I bought one with a hose connection. Much easier to let the water go down the drain than empty that bucket all the time.

    Side note: Wish I could ship all this rain up to the Midwest. We are drowning & they are so very dry.

    This is great. I can relate to too many of these items - just a part of quilting life. LOL

    so good! one more. don't buy something you misplaced. wait a day or two and when you move your fabric, you'll find it underneath.

    May I add more..............THINK before you agree to sew Shakespearean costumes, when told "Oh they look complicated, but they're really simple."............. even though he thinks he is, your 3 year old is not "helping"....................... have a friend nearby to say "very" when you look at a million piece quilt and ask "how hard could it be?"................... and finally throw out any directions that start with "simply" or "just".

    And the needle is put in the correct way.

    An iron heats better when it's plugged in. (I like to unplug mine when I'm wandering away - even though it's supposed to have an automatic shut-off)

    Remember to take the cords along for the sewing machine(s) when one goes to a class or retreat - and mark them with some kind of ID!
