Why We Think Sewing is Awesome!
When I took up sewing, it was almost out of necessity. Money was not readily available, so when clothes needed to be made or repaired, sew was the way to go. As years went on, my daughter became interested in sewing and it became something we could do together. Kind of mother/daughter bonding time.
I also find sewing to be very challenging. The bigger the challenge, the better. Although the bigger challenges can be frustrating at times, there is no better feeling when you finish a challenging project and it looks great!
We like the creativity that sewing brings to the table. Sewing allows you to open your mind and try to come up with something more creative than your last project. It allows you to start with basically nothing and end with something great.
When I am done with a project and my family absolutely raves about it, it gives me a lot of confidence. It is nice to be really good at something in life. It also really, really relaxes me. Your mind is working, but in a relaxing way. These are just some of the reasons we think sewing is awesome!!!
History of Sewing
Sewing has been around forever! It began during the Paleolithic Age where animal hides would be sewn together for clothes and shelter. In 1755, a man by the name of Karl Weisenthal, a German inventor, devised the first sewing machine needle. As the years went on, sewing became a major part of life. Women used sewing to make clothes for her family and some even worked in garment shops, working long hours for minimal pay.
Then, in 1790, the sewing machine was patented by Thomas Saint.
As years went on, companies and inventors started making the sewing machine better and better. In 1851, Isaac Singer (does the last name sound familiar?) came up with a sewing machine that could sew 900 stitches per minute, which was unheard of at the time.
As companies made sewing machines faster, better and easier to use, people began to take up sewing as a hobby instead of a necessity in life. Sewing became fun!
Now, there are a lot of sewing machines specialize in one or a couple areas of sewing. There are sewing machines for starters, sewing machines that embroider, and sewing machines for quilting. We will let you know what our favorites are and why.
