Is sewing truly a therapy?
Oh, this is a nice subject. Been thinking about it lately,..I guess the need to get into sewing is the real issue, why do we sew?.
I often question myself why bother?.. it is cheaper to get ready made cloths, beautiful, faultless and to my taste, OK! Sometimes expensive, but it gives me more joy , pleasure and confidence.SO,why do I bother spend hours in front of the sewing machine (I also spend hours in front of my computer). Doesnt this drag you to loneliness?
Oh well, I guess the tip is to treat sewing as a hobby and not as a Job, IF we want to enjoy it. Sewing it is meant to be therapeutic not making you getting stressed, your mind has to be cleared, we are supposed to be loving what we are making and not releasing that anger. To be honest, if I ever feel like things are not in order, sewing could make things worse, and a start to a bad day and here is the tips from Singer as the first steps of preparing for the sewing to be enjoyed, very cleverly put in no particular ORDER! :)
