    This year I only finished maybe a dozen or so projects, my greatest feat being a Hello Kitty dress, my first project without any sort of pattern, and it turned out PERFECTLY. This coming year I plan on doing so many more now that I have the time. I actually have a few all ready to go.

    I would love to win that I would watch and sew that would be cool!!! 1985/ 2010 that is neat ,I could make back in the day stuff that is cool that is my bag,cup of tea, right up my alley. I sure could learn alot from this DVD set. I sewed a pillow,shirt, just got back into sewing a few months ago, but I would use the dvd set I have been shopping and I am going to make alot of things this coming up year, I sure could use some fresh and new ideas that would help out a lot, so I could do some more shopping and buy stuff for the new projects. Also I did some repairs on clothes hemming etc and sewing Embroidery.!!!!!!!!

    At least 5 to 6 a year. A garment or two, a lot of mending (my husband is hard on his work jeans!), and things for around the house. I have a lot of great fabric, and other garments planned, but get hung up on the fitting the pattern stage!

    Since I started sewing again a few months ago… I’ve only made 5 pieces. I’m hoping to be able to sew many more things next year – maybe one a month (as long as my budget allows). More importantly, however, I would like to improve my sewing skills and the quality of my garments.

    I usually finish about 20 projects in a year. However, I have spent the last semester teaching at a university, so I have been able to finish a project a week and I will break my redcord this year!

    Quite a few less than I start. Last year I finished 4 I think. But I was in my final year of school and had my major work (‘Juliet’ Costume), which I spent A LOT of time on… This year I think I’ve made 12 or so, not including all my little pattern making bodices, skirts, etc

    About twenty, I’m rather lazy so it takes me weeks to finish small sewing projects. However, I can crochet a scarf rather quickly. I just learned how to a few days ago and I’m already working on my third one :)

    I have started sewing only in July of this year, and I’m on a steep learning curve, taking time to learn each technique carefully, so I would say only about 1 project per month! A reference set like this would certainly help me in my progress. ;)

    Omigosh! Well, I’ve had a year of exploring fit for myself so while I’ve completed lots of ‘tests’ the real garments of triumph would probably be around..20 this year. I don’t know if this is meant for garments only, but I also try plush now and then..only a couple this year, but it was fun.

    Normally I’d say anywhere from 20-50 although this year very few because of hand surgeries I had on both hands at two different times and two surgeries on each hand. I’ve pretty much been out of commission much of this year because of those. Next year I’ll be back on track again hopefully and ready to learn even more new things.

    If I count my personal sewing projects, and the sewing/alteration/repair projects I do for others, I bet it’s probably close to 50 or more) annually – Gee, maybe I should start keeping a list!
