Without a doubt, Anya is the queen of sewing organization.
If you're a type-A kinda person who loves organizing, planning, and spreadsheets much more than any rational person ever should than you're going to LOVE my chat with Anya.
Anya is a really sweet sewing blogger from Calgary with crazy in-depth sewing planning system, involving multiple Pinterest boards and multiple spreadsheets. In this episode she talks about her system, what some of the benefits of planning your sewing are, and gives some tips on how a beginner can start planning.
We've included her speadsheet system for you guys to download if you want to give her method a try. We know a multi-spreadsheet approach might not be everyone's cup of tea, but we still hope you can pick up a few tips from our chats today!
Before you dive into the episode, here's five fast facts about Anya!
Coffee or Tea?
Generally tea, but definitely a cup of Tim’s in the morning.
(Sidenote: Such a Canadian thing to say, eh?)
Android or Apple?
Knits or Wovens?
Wovens, although I don’t mind knits too much
Sew something slow, of finish a project in an afternoon?
Finish it up! I love projects that I can finish in an afternoon or a day
Sew something new, or a tried and true pattern?
It totally depends on my mood. If I’m rested and have time – something new, if I’m tired and cranky definitely tried and true.
I had so much fun chatting with Anya about her organization systems, it definitely inspired me to get my stuff in order! Do you guys organize your sewing plans? Let us know what your system is like! Comment below or use the hashtag #MakerStylePodcast to join in on the conversation!
