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!
