Results: Where do you find inspiration?

These are the fascinating results of our recent poll on where you find your sewing inspiration. A number of you also said in the comments that sewing blogs are another major source of inspiration (which I was thrilled to hear, of course).

The two biggest sources of inspiration were raw materials and vintage clothing. We obviously have a lot in common!
