    Quilting/Sewing music?

    What're your fave songs, types of music, or artists to listen to while you sew or quilt?

    I listen to Sirius Channels 63 (Christian) and 16 (Rock Blend). Love having background music.

    When I'm cutting, absolutely nothing because I forget what I'm doing. Otherwise, good ol' rock or country. LOUD, lol

    Just about anything really.... My iPod has everything from Broadway to classical to new age to country to light rock to Christian. Lately, I've been on a Broadway kick - listened to the soundtrack from "Wicked" about ten times over the weekend... Whatever it is, I have to have some music going in the background.

    I listen to music from South Africa, especially the Drakensberg Boys' Choir. It has beat, jazzy, keeps me focused on fun quilting.

    Country or Broadway....I can be loud and obnoxious while sitting alone in the house sewing when my husband is at work.

    I like Christian music, classical and new age. It just depends on my mood and the type of work I'm doing.

    If I'm listening to the radio, it's classical. If I've got my CDs playing it's probably one of Rod Stewart's American Song Book cds. But most frequently it's a book on CD. Right now I'm listening to Sacrilege A Novel by S.J. Parris.

    I like to listen to Big Band 30s,40s,50s or good old Rock n Roll. But I also like to turn on an old Black & White classic movie. I've seen them all so many times, I don't have to watch....I just listen!

    I have a CD player, TV DVD player and satellite receiver in my sewing room, but sometimes I just crave the sound of silence. Other times it ranges from Reba, to Third Day, to Queen, to Mannheim Steamroller, to Celtic Woman to Billie Holiday. I love nearly all music (except heavy metal and rap) I think it depends on what I'm sewing, and how much of a hurry Im in, or maybe just my mood.

    I put audio books on my ipod and listen to them. I get them free from the library. I never have time to sit and read, but quilt and listen I can do.

    I tape the Charlie Rose show and Tavis Smiley each weekday. So if I am quilting or embroidering, the volume is cranked up. Piecing not so much. This gives me a taste of the world outside my sewing room. Otherwise, smooth jazz or country.

    It depends on what I'm doing. If I'm piecing, I will usually have the tv on in the background. If I'm on the longarm it depends on whether it's a tedious piece or a simple piece. Tedious, I'll put some Rod Stewart of Kenny G on. If it's something simple I'll put Margaritaville on the XM & dance with my machine to that Carribbean beat!

    Had to jot some of the choices shown to check 'em out! I listen to everything from Big Band era, to Sinatra, Martin, Rosemary Clooney, 50's, Michael Buble, James Taylor, Crosby Stills & Nash, Christian music, and John Williamson (Australian).

    I like silence...sometimes visitors comment on how quiet it is and look at me weirdly when I say I like it that way. Lots of people feel the loss of 'background music' I think. However, I prefer silence.
