I was trying to come up with a list of reasons I sew and I came up with a list of reasons that other people have, but I don't. So here goes.
- I don't sew to save money. My machines aren't cheap. Supplies aren't cheap. Oftentimes the clothes I make are way cheaper than off the rack, but taking into consideration all the excess fabric I have, the machines, the needles, supplies, etc., I'm not sewing to save money.
- I don't sew to fight against poor working conditions in the garment industry. Though I wish that was one of my reasons because that is awesome.
- I don't sew to make money. My time as a mother is more valuable than the pennies I make selling things. I do, occasionally sell things I make, but not really to make money.
I think it just boils down to sewing because I enjoy it. Pretty simple. Do you sew? What is your motive?
