"Learn something new. One thing that I learned just before the new year was to make a hand rolled hem - on a half circle shawl. Before this year is done, I want to adjust a fitted top pattern so that it fits me perfectly - and use it over and over again. And then, there's the jacket that I started last winter…" – Janet C.

"Going to sort through my sewing room, condensing where possible. I want it more usable so there will be lots of reorganizing, sorting and rearranging. Hoping to rid the room of things I've held on to just 'because' but haven't used in a few years. Plan to be done in 2 weeks." – Anna N.
"Finish a few items I started, and to finish my sewing room." – Ro W.

"I am going to make at least one item of clothing for myself each month! This is huge for me since I don't usually sew for myself." – Sandy P.
"I am not buying any new clothing and will try and make all my own clothing for the next year." – Dawn M.
"To finish at least 8 UFOs, enter a few PR contests that appeal to me, to plan and make Christmas gifts earlier in the year instead of cramming them all in to December, and to take on fewer sewing (read 'mending') projects for other people and do more enjoyable, personal projects for my family and myself. Best wishes to everyone for 2014!" – Carrie A.
