If you’ve been mesmerized by a beautiful garment or quilt being created on a design show or by one of your friends, sewing just might be the hobby for you.
The benefits of learning to sew can be healthy and long lasting. When it comes to sewing, you can become so absorbed in the act of choosing fabrics, designs and the actual act of sewing itself, there might not be any more room to think about your problems.
Sewing can also boost your self esteem and help to manage your moods when you experience the thrill of accomplishing a project. In addition to being good for your health, sewing can also save you money by knowing how to repair your own clothes, create inexpensive home decor items and design handmade gifts.
Most people who know how to sew will tell you the same thing, sewing is just fun!

This is a wonderful thing for you to do. I hope it helps someone to get into the world of sewing. My mother was a pro, learned from her mother, and taught me how to sew anything and everything. It was the greatest gift she gave. She even taught my brother to do some basics. Anyone can sew!
I love seeing your projects. I have often repurposed one item into another, or remade an item of my own for a child. Keep your ideas coming. So glad I found your blog!
