    I sew alone too. I had one friend who sewed, until we moved a long distance away, but still sewed alone when she was near. We always chatted a lot over coffee about what we were currently sewing though.

    I usually sew alone. However, my aunt and I often skype to each other while were sewing. So we're trading ideas, etc. and having lots of fun together even though she's in Montana and I'm in Hawaii.

    I'm updating my original post. I have met a girl on here a couple weeks ago (Lynnejean) that lives close to me...wonders of wonders! We are now getting together once a week for a sew day and I'm having a blast! I highly recommend if you can meet up with people from this board, you can make lifelong friends. It's amazing how many of us live close to each other and don't even know it.

    When my daughters were in high school marching band, some of the moms and I would get together and sew colour guard flags. My daughters were percussionists, not colour guard members but I LOVED getting together two days a week during marching season and sewing. Most were somewhat inexperienced but it was just straight stitching. Now, I'm in Lubbock TX and haven't really met any women who enjoy sewing but am ever on the look out LOL

    I prefer sewing alone. I am not much of a group person. Though i do not mind getting together with another individual to figure out new techniques or to get/give guidance. But not to sit and quilt together. I do not even watch tv nor listen to the radio while i work.

    Sometimes my husband will come in the room where i am working on a project, and he will try to steal kissies from me... my response is usually, "Oye! You almost made me sew a crooked line." He usually does it on purpose to see me get riled up. lollll. He loves the intense look on my face when i am trying to concentrate.

    I sew alone. I don't have a sewing brain and it takes all my concentration to remind myself what I am doing. I enjoy classes but if I can...would rather figure it out on my own...a lot of trouble to haul it all out and all back in and upstairs to my sewing room.

    But love to shop with friends and share what I know with them if they are sewing on a project.

    None of my friends have any interest in sewing or quilting. My husband, daughter and dog are usually in the house--it's an open floor plan so we're pretty much in the same room.
