Finding Inspiration During Trying Times

Hello Creatives!

These past few weeks have truly been trying times for many.  I found myself dealing with a variety of stressors that zapped my creative inspiration.  Sadly for a time, I didn't want to create anything.  

Fortunately, I have access to a wealth of inspiration via the internet, books and other creatives.  I have been enjoying a few professionals that have produced some great information. I found that even if I didn't want to create, taking in knowledge about techniques and processes motivated me to get back into my sewing studio. 

I thought that I would share some links for those who may be dealing with a similar creative block.

The Baby Lock website has a variety of resources.  I like to check out the projects that they offer in the Learn/Create tab.  Their website is

They also have a Facebook page at

If you are looking for some ruler/template quilting inspiration, Sew Steady has been sharing lots of Facebook live posts.  Their link is:

If you are looking for serger inspiration, check out Deb Canham. She is a Baby Lock Educator and loves her sergers.  Her Facebook page is:  She has done several Facebook live presentations on serger feet and what you can do with them.

Missy Billingsley is also a Baby Lock Educator and she shares a variety of machine hints and tip on her Facebook group

Finally a local ruler designer and teacher Kadi  Easley owner of the Patchwork Dog hosted a Strip 'N Turn Mystery Sew,  It is a cute project and here is the Facebook Group

There are many more out there, but these got me back into my sewing studio.  

Stay Creative,
