Sew Grateful week – Reflection

Sewing was an activity of construction and socialisation at school.

Then I became a Home Ec teacher so teaching sewing became my full-time job. Job and a slow career! That’s when I decided my sewing passion and hobby needed to stay that way because there was more work than the rewards.

But sewing gave me a decent work and formal wardrobe and it still does. Even the family has had token sewing from me.

Now I’m thankful I have access to the local and online sewing community. I’ve been blown away by the generosity of many sewing bloggers. There have been a few Threads articles and patterns from generous sewers arrive via snail mail.
I’d like stay in touch with the sewing skills from the 40s, 50s and 60s because we’re still use those skills.

Learning everyday is what I enjoy.
