Tim Gunn- A Words Crush Wednesday Favorite Quote Challenge


Among the people who have a birthday on July 29 is Tim Gunn, the American clothing designer, educator and fashion consultant who came to national attention through the television show, Project Runway.

Project Runway is one of my favorite television shows. It might be the seamstress in me who can easily follow a pattern but who would fail miserably if I had to design something on my own. It might be my love of fabrics and threads. It might be the interesting personalities that are showcased among the designers. It might be the fabric buying trips to Mood. Or maybe it is Tim Gunn who I think is a classy and sophisticated yet real person.

Like me, Tim Gunn is an introvert. His quote which depicts the importance of surrounding ourselves with the right people refutes a common misconception about introverts. It is not that introverts shun all people. Introverts need good relationships with others, perhaps only a select few but we still need those relationships.

Tim Gunn’s famous line to all his designers is “Make It Work.”

That is something we all need to do as we face challenges in life. We must “make it work.”

    I love that show as well. On the Canadian version Sunny Fong from Toronto won. His work was amazing and creative.

      It is one of the few shows that I am totally addicted to. It has generally been televised on Thursday night here and I will admit that I make plans so as to not interfere with being able to watch the show.

    Well Happy Birthday Mr. Gunn! Had the honor of seeing him in San Antonio. I also love his show and really enjoyed his book. Glad to hear you are a “fellow seamstress”!! Love, love, love, fabric, sewing etc.

      The stitching and fabric and threads are the things I go back to over and over again. My own creative media. Was he making an official appearance in San Antonio?

    Haven’t seen him before. He’s adorable! Project Runway is probably a show I would watch… if I had a working TV. ):

      I think he is so special and very interesting. I probably spend too much time watching TV although I have contemplated going without one. Someone on my house though would have a very hard time with that.

        It definitely took some getting used to, but it’s nice because I have so much more time to spend on other things I actively enjoy. But every once in a while I miss old favorites, and the ability to check out people like Tim.

          I admire people who successfully remove television from their lives. My sister who is disabled keeps the tv on pretty much all day long for company if for no other reason while I am at work. She would be lost without it so I couldn’t do that to her.

            Me getting rid of my TV only affected me. Not sure what would have happened if there were others I needed to consider. It’s different when there are other adults with choices in the matter.
