What would we do today without our sewing machines? I dare say any clothing I had to hand Stitch would not be acceptable to wear outside the house let alone be called Sunday Best.
I admit I am better at Stitching more than one piece of material together when I am sitting at my sewing machine versus Stitching by hand - take my Quilted Jewelry for example -
the crisp, clean lines of the fabrics sewn together would not be so crisp and clean if I had attempted to piece the fabrics by hand. Yet, I could never use a machine to Quilt the miniature Stitches I add to each of my Jewelry pieces, those have to be Stitched by hand. https://www.etsy.com/listing/185233353/green-pink-gingham-fabric-necklace?ref=shop_home_active_17
But when it comes to Stitching what I call my "Bedspring Products", Stitching by hand is a must for me!
The walls come to life with each Stitch as do the windows and chimneys creating warm and inviting Prim dwellings.
While I will always be amazed at the beautiful clothing hand Stitched in days gone by, I will treat my sewing machine with love and care and stick with small hand Stitching projects.
May your hand Stitching bring you much joy!
Until next time....
