How Sewing Saved the World!

Updated: Mar 19, 2022

Sewing Saved the World!

Sewing is NOT a dying craft.

Contrary to some popular beliefs, sewing is also not "just for old folks". When I was 6, I learned to hand stitch and after having my oldest child in 2012, I began sewing with a sewing machine after many years or not using one. You are never tool young or in my case, too old to start sewing.

Last year when the pandemic happened, the world turned to sewers and sewist across the globe for help in making masks to accommodate the mask production shortage. Prior to the pandemic, you like many may have taught sewing was not a needed skill but last year was proof that it is a very important skill to have.
