For awhile I didn't have time to read or view the daily pattern reviews here and I didn't think much of it. The reviews were still there if I needed them for a specific pattern, so no biggie, right??

Well, I have also recently been falling behind in my sewing and not spending as much time in my awesome new space... why oh why???? Was my finally found hobby becoming a flash in the pan??

Well, I have recently had time to start looking at (at least some) of the daily reviews and I find it's sparking my creative juices again! I think just being stuck in my own little world and not having the vision and drive on my own, I needed that little push from my PR friends out there!

Thanks to all who continue to review on a daily basis!!

Amen, Heathergwo! I look forward every night to my time to read all the information added to PR that day. Even if I don't have much time to sew, I stay interested and inspired by the reviews, questions and comments. I feel like I'm learning more all the time from this site. Thanks Deepika and everyone else who adds to my daily fun time!

Totally agree Heather! I've made several items just because I liked what someone else made! The reviews are so inspirational!

Thank you Lord for my Mother who taught me the joy of sewing, for my Father who encouraged my sewing, for the talent You gave me to sew, and for all the special people in my life to sew for.

I remember writing and posting my first review. I was a new garment sewer and slightly intimidated by the expertise on this site. I was so surprised to get comments and compliments. Posting in the gallery and participating in the forums helped me find the skills needed to keep going and improve.

I really value this site, and taking a few minutes to look at projects does spark my own creativity. It also connects me to other PR members and that is priceless.

I agree!
I am so excited to get any comments on my reviews. It really makes you feel good. And I looooove seeing other sewists projects. I don't have friends who sew so for me this is such a valuable resource.

It is wonderful to hear your feedback about posting and reading reviews!! We are so glad that you all find the site a source for inspiration. And as someone who takes forever to decide on a pattern, I read EVERYTHING you all write about- it is so helpful.
Happy Thanksgiving, all!

I am hesitant about buying patterns if they haven't been reviewed here, and I am an old and worn sewist. Which means I have to keep up and do my part.

I just wish PR was more like Ravelry in terms of the interface. I have old eyes. I need big BIG type.

Some browser's allow you to magnify the page you are looking at. That can make the print quite a bit larger.
