My biggest sewing challenge is keeping my work space cleared. I have a dedicated space but find other thing make their way into that space causing clutter. My goal/challenge for the upcoming year is to spend the final 5 minutes of each sewing session putting things away, especially the things that belong elsewhere.

“My biggest sewing, knitting, or crochet challenge is (insert your struggle)…" Finding the right fabric and notions; i.e. small print fabric, small plaids in the colors I want, thin “leather,” the right colors of the fabric I want that drapes or stretches correctly . . . trims/laces that are the right colors, widths and design . . .

My biggest sewing challenge is staying organized so I can find my stuff when I start a new project.My sewing room has 3 doors in it so there is always traffic and someone is using my sewing area to drop their stuff and move mine .I am very thankful to have a sewing room even though it isn’t ideal.

My biggest sewing and knitting challenge is making the time to do it. I do love sewing and knitting. Whenever I get to actually work on something, I wish I did it more often. It is always exciting to finish something you have made.

My biggest sewing, knitting or crocheting challenge is that I don’t know how to crochet and wish I did… I have no time to learn something new and I know how to knit and pearl but not how to drop and add stitches, so I can make scarves or blankets.

My biggest sewing challenge is the finishing touches! I get so excited when the garment takes shape, but I lose my enthusiasm when it comes to snaps, velcro, tacking down facings, etc.

My biggest knitting challenge is when I make a mistake and have to tear out several rows of work. It’s happened a few times on the human size blanket I’m currently making and is so frustrating.

My biggest challenge in sewing is just starting! I love sewing so much I tend to save it as a ‘reward’ for getting other chores done! As soon as I finish doing blank, blank and blank, I’ll let myself sew! Lately I’ve been putting sewing first. Heaven!

My biggest challenge is learning to thread the new serger I just got. I’ve never used one and I’m intimidated with how to thread it. It came already threaded, but I’m going to have to change thread at some point and I’m afraid I won’t get it right!

My biggest challenge is deciding what to make next— whether it be doll clothes, writing a story, crochet or knit projects, etc. I work a lot, so I tend to do everything by hand— and doll clothes are the perfect portable size once everything is cut out.

My biggest sewing, knitting, or crochet challenge is understanding the shorthand directions for pattern stitches. I wash there was a dictionary of terms with photos to show what the stitch should look like. I am a visual learner and the struggle is real! ;)

My biggest sewing, knitting, or crochet challenge is consistency. When I sew two sleeves, they’re always just a touch “off”. Same with crocheting – everything can be the same (hook, yarn), but they’re NEVER identical!!

I don’t crochet, but knit prolifically. My biggest challenge is finishing what I start. I have more UFOs (unfinished objects) laying around and stored here and there, than I can count.

My biggest sewing challenge is getting everything organized. I see pics of these awesome sewing rooms , fabric stacked neatly, baskets lined up on the shelves, and I think I could accomplish so much more if I didn’t always have to deal with the clutter or search for a needed item I know is there somewhere.

My biggest sewing challenge is (like many others I’m sure) finding the time to do it. I can usually only grab small moments here and there but when you’re problem solving rather than just following instructions, you can’t maintain a continuous train of thought to actually solve the problems when you’re working in small bursts

My biggest sewing, knitting, crocheting challenge is finding time to do any of them. Also, right now, I’m dealing with a hand injury that has limited my dexterity. It is slowly getting better. I just had surgery on December 23. I’m hoping to be able to do more by next spring. Thank you for all of the lovely patterns and ideas for the doll outfits. I love Pixie Faire!

My biggest challenge is working faster. I have been sewing for many years and see comments of how detailed dolls clothes and accessories are completed from start to finish within two hours and this is unfortunately not my experience.

My biggest challenge is when knitting as I’m left handed and I have to add another row before starting a pattern so it works out on the right side.

My biggest knitting challenge is I’m just a beginner- know how to knit and purl and learning “in the round” but don’t feel like I have the skills to make the pretty doll sweater patterns. Would love for SWC to do a knit along – hack of a sew along :)

I had a stroke in December 2019 and I have stopped sewing for now until I recover. So my biggest challenge right now is my hand tremors in my right hand. I can’t wait to get back to sewing projects for my nieces.

My biggest sewing, knitting, or crochet challenge is actually finishing the project. I start out very excited and then come up against a difficult instruction that I can’t figure out and stop working on the project altogether.

My biggest sewing, knitting or crocheting challenge is trying to keep my sewing room clean and organized. While working on a project I tend to get sidetracked and find myself working on several projects at once. That has a tendency to get messy!

My biggest challenge is finding the time to sew. It seems like I have so much time in between sewing sessions that I constantly feel like I’m starting over reading the pattern and getting in the groove.

My biggest knitting struggle is that I learned from a left handed knitter, so I do things a bit backward. My biggest crochet struggle is actually chaining without making a series of knots! And my biggest sewing struggle is probably inserting a zipper or cutting out the pattern.

I hope some day I’m able to sew as well as my Mom does (she made most of our clothes growing up, for my sister and I and our dolls 🙂) and to be able to crochet like she does as well (she’s made several prayer shawls for people and I’d love to make her one because my Mom does so much for so many yet rarely gets anything back from anyone).

“My biggest sewing, knitting, or crochet challenge is this: When I am using my sewing machine, sometimes the bobbin tension is too loose or too tight. It is never easy for me to get the right bobbin tension and I waste too much time trying my best to adjust it.

My biggest challenge is keeping my sewing room clean. It seems when I sew I accumulate a variety of notions on my sewing room table. Then I accidentally start knocking stuff off into the floor.

My biggest sewing, knitting, or crochet challenge is tension (in body and yarn). I tend to be a little type A so I try too hard and the harder I try the worse it gets. I have to remind myself to breathe, relax and unravel the knotted mess I just made. To think I do this for relaxation!
