Home Sewing is Once Again Gaining Popularity, Thanks to Social Media

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.
