Here's Why Everyone Needs To Learn How To Sew


How good are you with a needle and thread? Do you know your way around a sewing machine? If your answers to both those questions aren’t particularly positive, you should consider taking up sewing. You may think that sewing is very much a hobby of the past and something only women from a few hundred years ago did. But that certainly isn’t the case! I’m sure you will be able to find lots of modern women who enjoy sewing as a hobby. Here are some reasons why you should consider joining them.

Sewing For Kids

If you have kids, you will know just how much wear and tear affects their clothes. As well as dealing with all these rips and tears, you will also need to cope with your kids growing out of their clothing. Thankfully, sewing can help you with all of this. For instance, if your child’s trousers become too short for them, you could simply let them down. Being nifty with a needle also allows you to repair any damage. So you won’t have to completely replace any clothing or visit an expensive seamstress!

It’s Good For Your Mind

Some studies have shown that taking the time to do arts and craft activities can help your brain to age better. Some experts claim that it can even help you prevent the development of dementia. That’s because getting crafty is good for improving concentration and memory. So if you want to help your brain through the aging process, it’s a good idea to pick up your sewing needles! Just remember that it is worth getting a sewing table so that you can sew in comfort. You can find out more about these tables at websites like

Make Your Own Decor

If you have been thinking about redecorating a room, you will probably have been looking at home stores for various decor items and decorative pieces. Things like cushions and rugs are great for adding some extra color to your rooms. But you will have no doubt also noticed the very big price tags that are often attached to them! Thankfully, if you learn how to sew you won’t ever have to buy any cushions or other decor pieces again, as you will be able to make your own!


It’s Environmentally Friendly

If you are concerned about the state of the planet and want to try a much more sustainable and eco-friendly lifestyle, then learning to sew is definitely a step in the right direction! It gives you the chance to repurpose and repair your items and belongings so that you don’t have to throw them out and replace them. It can be a problem throwing certain furniture and items out, as they can be difficult to dispose of in an environmentally way. Not only that, though, but you may end up replacing them with items that haven’t been made using green manufacturing methods. You’ll find some great tips for eco-friendly sewing online at sites including

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
