    I usually listen to audio books or pandora. If I'm cutting or measuring or something I need to concentrate, I have it quiet. If I'm doing something comfortable or repetitive, I love a good mystery. What's funny is when I work on a project again, I recall what book or music I was listening to.

    I love Hallmark movies, too.

    I watch TV when sewing but I must agree with Lorie I never try to sew during The Walking Dead.

    I always have the tv on. Not always watching because mostly they are reruns, but I can't stand quiet unless I am trying to go to sleep. I have my sewing room, that has a small tv that isn't hooked up to the satellite, so I only watch DVD's or listen to music in there. I did however move my one fold up sewing table back in to the kitchen/dining area...cuz I need to be where I can see what is going on in the rest of the house, and can see my LR TV from where that is sitting. Although I do love when the little's come in my sewing room and watch an old Disney movie or something with me.

    I'll watch tv if I'm knitting. Otherwise I prefer the silence because then I space out and go into a whole new world. I just get into the moment of the quilting. Occasionally I will listen to music if I'm long arm quilting or cutting. Piecing I prefer silence.

    I watch them a little but mostly just listening while sewing. I can't watch shows with lots of details to follow while sewing......I'm afraid I will miss something.
    Exactly what I was going to say...lol. I found listening to something over watching is far better. Audiobooks, radio, mindless CDs that play over again on repeat, and streaming radio because regular radio can play the same song or song set over and over again.
