One year ago, I bought myself a sewmachine. I’ve have been using it pretty often and the last time, it was to make a whole piece of furniture (a head for our bed). To swe is to me a piece of heaven and peace. If you are very methodical, you know your geometry, this is all about been exact and precise and suddently, you can do things by yourself!
This can sound easy, but it is not. I never succeeded a piece from the first time without sewing off and on again. I have a lots of respect for people making it every day and it is scandalous that we can buy clothes that cheap in some shops. To sew a shirt for exampel takes time and knowledge.
But try it sometimes if you have the opportunity, it is really good for the mind!
