Five reasons to start sewing in 2019

 

There’s been a huge revival in all things sewing in recent years. With TV programmes such as the Great British Sewing Bee and Kirstie’s Handmade Christmas inspiring the younger generation to take up sewing as a hobby and encouraging us to try our hand at some new and exciting projects, there’s never been a better time to start sewing!

Here are five reasons why everyone should give sewing a try in 2019.

 

  1. Getting started is simple

You don’t need to splash out hundreds of pounds to get started with sewing. In fact, all you’ll need is some needles, a little thread and some fabric and you’re good to go. The only limit with sewing is your imagination, so if you’re new to the craft then start small with a little drawstring bag and build your sewing skills from there.

 

  1. A wonderful skill that lasts a lifetime

Once you’ve mastered the art of sewing, regardless of whether you prefer free hand sewing or using a machine, you’ll have a skill that will last a lifetime. You’ll be able to pass those skills on to the younger generation of your own family too.

 

  1. It’s therapeutic

Sewing is a wonderfully relaxing hobby that keeps your hands busy and mind active. You can sew pretty much anywhere at any time too, so if you need to take a few moments to yourself, you can pick up your latest sewing project and feel the tension of daily life melt away.

 

  1. Create something unique

There are some utterly gorgeous sewing patterns available for a wide range of items to adorn your home or wardrobe, and you also have the ability to choose the fabric that communicates your own individual style too!

Plus, if you’re looking for something that you won’t find in any high street store, then sewing gives you the ability to create something truly unique for yourself.

 

  1. Gorgeous gifting

There's nothing nicer than giving a gift that you've made yourself to show someone that you really care, so sew something special and give your loved ones a handcrafted gift they'll treasure for a lifetime.

From table placemats and runners to celebrate that special family event, beautiful bunting for a garden party or even a special outfit that’s sure to wow wherever they go, there's no end to the possibilities that sewing offers when it comes to creating a beautiful and personal gift for your loved ones.
