Have you ever played the “Never Have I Ever!” game? It’s pretty fun 🙂 I started thinking about creating a sewing edition and before I knew it everything had spilled out… and below is the final version!
This activity is perfect if you’re just curious where you stand… It’s even better if you print it out and take it to your sewing retreat or quilt group meeting and compare your score with your sewing besties!
