Sewing is a craft that involves joining fabrics together with stitches either with a needle and thread by hand or with a machine.
Sewing has obvious benefits: no missing buttons, or dropped hems, more money in the bank because we make more of our own clothes, and an up-to-date wardrobe because refashioning last season’s buys is so easy.
The hand-eye coordination is good for our brains and for keeping our fingers quick. Having agile minds and bodies tend to make us feel more agile and alert. Plus being able to make and mend does wonders for our self–esteem. Sewing skills can also open up your social life.
