    Do you listen to music while you sew? Any certain types you enjoy listening to while you sew that you might not typically listen to? Share!

    usually not. I sometimes will watch tv on the computer but most times I have nothing on so I can hear the kids. Now that its hot they can go to the pool and I leave the window open so I can hear them and check on them frequently.

    I listen to music in my sewing room usually something upbeat, sometimes country, sometimes rock, sometimes CD's, and i get more done, In the quilting room I have found that good music with a good ... flow ... to it really helps my quilting be smoother, it flows with the music.:)
    smooth jazz, lots of instrumentals are good to quilt to with the long arm, it has to be something you really like though because you have to have it up loud to hear it over the machine ;)

    I listen to it all day at work, so I kind of like the quiet! Or something on tv.

    I love music when I sew. I boot up Pandora on my computer and listen to soothing music when I piece and the Beach Boys and such when I quilt.

    Most of the time I have the I-Pod playing with my Christian Music going. Sometime a mix playlist sometimes a specific artist.
    Sometimes the I-pod is on full random and I get to hear a lot of country, some latin, some harder Christian rock than I want to hear (my kids have all loaded all of their music on our I-pod) Right now it is on a mix of Christian Music.

    My iPod has at last count 10 continuous days of music on it.

    Irish, rock, folk, latin, old swing and standards, bebop and later jazz, right now listening to Dvorak on Pandora. (cause it's still technically my work day, though I am done.)

    I've been listening to a lot of Cuban music lately while I quilt. It's among my favorites.

    Nope just the hum of my machine and all the thoughts of more quilts rambling around in my head.

    It varies for me . . sometimes I listen to music (anything but rap) sometimes I listen to the tv or a movie and sometimes I just sit :-)

    Sometimes my husband will even sit in the room and talk to me about his day :-)

    I love lots of music, I usually have HGTV on for the noise. When I listen to music I like to move around and that doesn't go well with sewing, I might stitch my fingers.

    Depends on my mood. This week it's been The Irish Decendants. Sometimes it's Celtic, other times it might be the Eagles, or if I'm cleaning and want to get it done Meatloaf, loud and energitic. My kids have grown up with my music, and they sing along.

    Ditto. "If" on the rare occassion that I do want some noise, I turn on the TV to keep me company. Usually though I like quiet.

    I have my Ipod hooked up to my Bose and I have a 18' Flat tv with a DVD player in my sewing room. I have to have background noise in order to work. It's a quirky thing that I have always done. I can't work in silence.

    I usually listen to country if I don't have the tv on. My DH still works & this is the only company I have all day besides my quilt inspector, TIA!!! She has her own chair pad at the end of the sewing table in front of the window!

    I pay an annual feee to MLB for all baseball games. I'm a NY Mets fan living in NH. Have the tv on to a game, listening while I cut and sew.

    I had my son make me a half dozen CDs of songs by artists I like. No ballgame and I've listened to enough MSNBC for the day, I sew listening to music I love.

    I LOVE music. I like a wide variety (never rap though). Sometimes I listen to my mP3 player, and sometimes the radio, it depends on if I want to listen to a specific artist or not, and if I'm tired of commercials.
