There's no escaping it now, once Halloween is out of the way, the holidays are coming. The shops are already bursting with cards, wrapping paper, gifts, excessive fatty and calorie heavy foods and kids all around the world are getting ready to burst with excitement. Me too!
I've already got my Christmas present, but I'm not allowed to open it or use it yet. But I'll be introducing you to my new baby in January. Here's a sneak peak –>my Christmas present. I'm also signed up for a class so I can learn how to use it – so I should really find the time to watch that first before I open the box, try things haphazardly and mess up all the settings!
Give someone you know a sewing lesson voucher
Perhaps you are giving someone you know some sewing supplies, a fabric bundle, a sewing book, or even a sewing machine this holiday season. I know from the huge surge in visitors to the Easy Sewing Projects for Beginners page and the Sewing Tutorials page in January, that lots of people get sewing supplies for Christmas and take up sewing for the first time in January.
To go along with these sewing supplies, why not gift them a sewing lesson – a personal sewing lesson with you! This is a great way to promise your time to someone to help them learn to sew, or help them with a particular skill or technique.
Or if your budget for the holidays is tight this year, then give these sewing lessons as a cost-free gift. Pop the vouchers inside a gift card, Christmas or birthday card and promise the gift of your time for a sewing lesson this year.
Enjoy a little Christmas music without all the commercialism with the Holidays are Coming. Because – the holidays are coming!
