Why Sewing is important for you and your child
Learning to sew can save money. There is a sense of accomplishment that comes with being able to make something on your own. Sewing is a great hobby and you'll never be sorry you learned how! It's a hobby that continues to give for as long as you sew.
Sewing your own clothes is a way to dress yourself in exactly the kind of style you want. Clothing bought in stores is expensive and often does not fit right. Sometimes the result is spending more money on alterations than you originally did when purchasing the item.
By learning to sew you get to make something useful and you can make tons of one-of-a-kind accessories, tote bags, scarves and more! Sewing not only enables you to create beautiful and heirloom items that can be passed down, but they are also the same skills needed to mend and alter clothes. Knowing how to put a hem back in pants and skirts as well as how to sew a button back on a garment is extremely important and can be very expensive to have done.
Sewing is an important Life Skill and is the vehicle to teach self-confidence through skill-building. Sewing helps you develop fine motor skills, improves your focus and concentration and teaches the importance of patience and self-control. Knowing personal boundaries, increasing skill, achieving tangible goals while working outside your comfort zone all support the development of confidence and self-esteem.
