The Benefits Of Choosing To Hand Sew


Sewing is an activity that has remained popular since its inception. It is a bit of a cliché to suggest that it is the preserve of older people, as in today's society people of all ages enjoy sewing. It is an enjoyable, relaxing activity that gives real end results, such as a tapestry. Let's look at why so many people like to sew by hand, rather than use a machine.

Relaxing Activity

While some people like to fill their free time with active sports or games, others like to do things that are less demanding. This is especially true after a tiring day's work. Sitting in a comfy chair and sewing is a great way to relax; you can do something productive while still watching the television or chatting to a family member. This is possible because sewing by hand is done at a relaxed pace.

While some people can relax using a sewing machine, the machines tend to be in separate rooms or corners of a room, potentially preventing a person from being a part of the conversation. If you sew by hand, you can choose to do it almost anywhere, such as in out in the yard or in bed as you relax.

More Detail By Hand

Another reason people choose to sew by hand is that you can get more detail into an area by hand. Generally speaking, you can gather the material tighter as you sew by hand, ensuring that you can fit more stitches into a smaller area than the machine can do. This means that you can create more complex color combinations or patterns when making a piece.

Preserves Delicate Fabrics

Sometimes, you will be working with delicate materials, such as silk. In a machine, it can happen that a material such as silk can become entangled. As silk and similar materials are usually expensive, these are important items to keep safe as you work on them. Working with them by hand means that you can treat them carefully as you work.

Steady Pace

If you have an older sewing machine, it may not have a fixed speed control, meaning that you can have the machine going quite fast, then quite slow. Sewing this way makes it easy to make mistakes, such as sewing over a mark or overshooting a turn in the sewing. Even on machines with a fixed speed control, it can be easy to go past your mark without first building up some experience. Sewing by hand is usually done at a steady pace, allowing you to keep your work accurate.
