There are many advantages to learning how to sew. For starters you can make what you want, with the exact colors you like and best of all you can make it to fit you. This has always been a huge issue for me because I can never find what fits. That is one of the primary reasons why I learned to sew.
Another advantage of knowing how to sew is that you’ll never again have to take your clothes in to get altered when they don’t fit. That alone will save you a lot of money. Plus you can mend your own clothes once they become worn.
You can sew for yourself, family and friends, and even earn a small income by sewing for people you don’t know. You can start your own seamstress business right out of your own home with next to no start-up fees. All you would need is a reliable sewing machine, a serger and you’re all set.
Sewing can also be very relaxing; provided you don’t sit at the machine all day. There’s nothing like hearing your sewing machine hum to your favorite tunes.
Then comes the time to wear your clothes and hear all the wonderful compliments. If the comfort of your clothes isn’t enough, this will do it.
There are many options on how you can get started with sewing. Many local colleges or fabric stores will offer sewing classes. You can also take sewing lessons online, correspondence, or teach yourself by reading books, or using the internet.
