Home sewing was so popular in the 1950’s and 1960’s that high school offered courses in Home Making which taught you ,aside from cooking, sewing skills.
Some points to ponder:
- Let’s face it, even today there are a lot of SINGLE people out there, and sewing, at least repairs is one skill most of us, even men, can use.
- Mom will not always be around to sew your buttons back on, or mend that tear in your favorite pair of jeans that you wear around the house.
- It is also very satisfactory to be able to make something exactly as you want it to be, not having to accept something other than perfect off a rack in a store.
- Working with one’s hands can be very satisfying.
