About the 2023 Quilter’s Planner

Custom made in the United States just for you! 

We offer a number of ways you can customize your 2023 planner, from the cover design (9 options to choose from!), to the calendar start day, and even how you plan your week. Each planner is made one at a time, specifically for you with the options you pick.

Choose your start day: Monday or Sunday

 

One of the best ways to customize your planner is picking the calendar week start day.

We know that this is an important decision for you, and it affects how you plan your week.

*Note: Your monthly and weekly calendars will both start with the same day of the week, Monday or Sunday, depending on which you choose.

Choose a Weekly Calendar design

One of the highlights in the Quilter’s Planner is the option to choose from four different weekly spreads.

Vertical

This option has vertical columns with hour slots, a daily top 3 priority list, and multiple to-do lists.

Horizontal

This horizontal calendar format doesn’t have hour slots, but has more space to write and take notes.

Graph Paper

Perfect for those who primarily use the monthly calendar and want to use weekly pages for notes and doodles.

Dot Grid

Do you love to bullet journal? This design is for you! It is wide-open to your imagination.

Each spread (regardless of the design you choose) also includes our popular weekly quilting tips so you can continually improve your quilting skills.

Other features of the 2023 Quilter’s Planner

Monthly Calendar

The monthly calendar is simple and uncluttered, allowing you the space you need to plan your life. The left margin has a space to list your current quilting and personal projects and a section for notes.

The monthly calendar also helps you stay on top of the most popular quilting events, so you never have to wonder what’s happening in the quilt world. You’ve got it all right there, conveniently in your Quilter’s Planner.

Planning & organization pages

Monthly Goal Planning pages are designed to help clarify what is most important each month so you can spend your time meaningfully and with purpose. With spaces for goal planning and important dates as well as gratitude and inspiration, this page focuses on all aspects of your busy life!

Building healthy habits is so important, which is why we’ve added a Monthly Habit Tracking page. With spaces to track daily, weekly and monthly habits, inspirational quotes, and a place to note rewards for successful tracking, this page has everything you need to inspire change! 

The My Sewing Machines page is a customer request come to life! Use this space to manage information on two of your sewing machines. Track your service and machine care history, machine accessories, and notes about your machine. For many, the sewing machine is the most valuable asset in your sewing room, and we want to help you care for it well!

In the hustle and bustle of our sewing spaces, it can be hard to keep track of all the tools we own. Now you can create an inventory of those assets with the My Sewing Tools Inventory page! With spaces for machine feet, rulers, and other tools, you’ll always know what you have at your disposal. Plus, we’ve added a Sewing Tools Wish List so you can keep track of what to buy on your next shopping excursion!
