People take up Sew for a variety of reasons. If you don't Sew you may be thinking about Learning. What are some reasons you should? Here are just a few of the many.

1. Learning to sew will give you an understanding and apprecitation of the time it takes to design and create your own wardrobe. This understanding will give you a sense of pride from the time and energy you put into the Clothing maked by your own hand.

2. Sewing is an art form and leads to self-expression. Designing, Drapeing, or working with Sewing patterns, allows you to watch your idea come to fruition. That is an amazing feeling. Expressing yourself through your projects and taking your time to hand-pick every detail gives you a sense of satisfaction form the art that sewing is.

3. Clothing made by you will fit your unique figure and taste better. Buying Clothing from a department store doesn’t fit every figure or every preferance. It might be too tight in areas and too loose in places you wnat a close fit. When you Make your own Clothing you get you the freedom to custom fit everything you make. Your Pants, Tops, Dresses, etc, look and feel the way you choose them to.

4. It can be like meditation. Sewing in a quiet room by yourself is relaxing. There is something serene about the sound of your machine and feeling the Fabric in your hand.

5. It is a very useful skill. When a Hem comes loose or you get a tear in your favorite top, instead of having to pay a tailor to do the repairs, you can fix the damage yourself , saving you money. You can also alter ill-fitting Clothing to your own preference.

6. Making friends Joining Sewing Circles is fun. People are passionate about Sewing and are likely to bond.

7. I get quite a few compliments on the clothing items I have made. Admirers compliment what I am wearing and I tell that I made the Dress, or whatever I was wearing that earned me the compliment, they look envious. Its a great confidence boost.

8. Once you get good at Sewing your friends will most likely notice your talent. You may get asked to make your friends or family a few things or teach them How to Sew. You can decide to start teaching Sewing Classes and charge a few dollars per session. This can give you great source for spare change. You could even start a business, for example, I am make Sewing Patterns based on figure types and curve levels.

9. Shopping for Fabric and Sewing Patterns is one of the most enjoyable parts of Sewing. There are hundreds if not thousands of Sewing Patterns that you can choose from in stores or online. It is fun to pick the fabric, Pattern, and Notions for your next Sewing Project.

10. You are always learning. When you sew with a new to you Pattern you haven't used before than you almost always learn new Techniques. When you are constantly learning you tend to keep your brain youthful.

Street Talk

My favourite point is number 4. Definitely relaxing for me. Some days I just go through my patterns or fabrics and dream about all the projects I could make and then pack it all away totally happy with the time I've spent! I will agree it's certainly helpful at times too.
