Despite this silent and solitary state of affairs, I never feel alone when I sew.
I do have a voice to share and explain my projects on my blog. I can communicate with other stitchers by commenting on their blogs and Instagram pictures. I listen to the opinions, ideas and methods of others and can try them out for myself. I think ahead about my ideas and processes that I might like to share too.
Before I knew about the online sewing community, I would ask my Mother, but with her living far away from me in Australia, if I ever needed help with something, I would have to wait until our time difference made a phone call suitable to ask her advice. Now I can search for tutorials, construction videos, pattern reviews and style and fit photos to help me whenever I am in need of guidance.
My mother sewed our clothes growing up, both my Grandmothers sewed, and most of my Aunts sew too. I am Sew Grateful to have been exposed to such a useful and creative set of skills.
