Talk Back Thursday

Thanks to Carolyn, Donna, mamafitz, toni, Vicki and Claire for "talking back" to my Friday Confession a couple of weeks ago! I confessed that I don't always read the sewing books that I buy as thoroughly as I should...

It sounds like most people are better than I am at reading their books through, at least once, pretty much cover-to-cover.

Almost everyone agreed that having a library of reference books available for help with new or difficult projects was invaluable. One slightly different perspective was offered by mamafitz, who doesn't buy many sewing books, and prefers books of sewing projects and text books on topics like pattern making, over general reference books.

Donna is incredibly disciplined (in my mind) and regularly purges her library of books that haven't proven useful, in order to make room for new purchases. (And here I was just bracing myself for a move to a bigger house!)

One thing is certain, lifelong sewers are lifelong learners - always pushing, always growing...

Thanks again to everyone who responded! :)
