Learn to Celebrate Progress

Not many of us spend a lot of time patting ourselves on the back. Let's change that! In this episode, we'll share some concrete ideas that we've found helpful to celebrate progress and stay motivated.

Few of us celebrate our progress consistently. You probably deserve a lot more pats on the back than you give yourself.

Easier said than done, right? In this episode, we’ll go over some specific techniques and tools you can use to keep a better eye on your sewing progress, and acknowledge your progress as you grow. We talk about how we remember the things we’ve made, focus on what we’ve learned, and make time to reflect.
