    I find it hard to get motivated to sew alone. I usually get side tracked and end up not sewing.

    I was just wondering what many of you do. Do you attend quilting groups, get together with friends or like to sew alone?

    I sew alone, but my kids are right there with suggestions of what they would like next.

    I do both. I sew at home in the evenings and on weekends, but if a get together is planned, I am there. Our guild has a Sew-In at least once a month, either on a Saturday or in the evening, and we just had our first retreat. Also, at least one meeting each quarter is a sewing meeting. We bring handwork (applique, binding, etc.) and sit and sew and talk.

    I sew alone. I probably wouldn't get much done with someone else here.

    I sew alone cause that way I am not distracted, nor would I want someone suggesting that I not do it my way but theirs.

    I sew alone. I can't get anything accomplished when sewing with a group.

    I usually sew alone. If I have someone with me, I would talk too much. I'm one of those, you know, that can't walk and chew gum. Even though I sew alone, y'all are right here with me. One of the reasons that I don't get a lot accomplished.

    It's me, myself, and I, with DH sitting in his visitor's chair. So you have to decide how to categorize me. lol

    Definitely alone. I like the quite time I spend with just me and my sewing machine.

    Mostly alone when it comes to quilting/patchwork/, but sometimes when working on a garment or costume, I like to have company.

    I find that I'm more motivated if I sew with others. I belong to a group that meets every other week. Inspired by our mini lessons to do more at home alone.

    Also have been sewing with 3 sister in laws since mid summer. We rotate among our homes, get a lot accomplished since we can problem solve together as needs arise & catch up on family news at the same time.

    Downside is carting materials/machine around.
