why i sew

Erin and Amy, creators of the Sewing Summit, asked us to share why we sew.

I spent yesterday thinking of all sorts of deep thoughts about my reason for choosing sewing as a hobby.  I planned to use words like creativity, necessity, control, process, and usefulness.

I’ve spent the last few weeks reading all sorts of heated discussions about what is modern and what is handmade and whether it’s all right to buy fabric for a big time quilt maker to sell her designs at a chain fabric store.  All of that overthinking left me in word overload.

When I woke up this morning I realized I sew for two reasons…

1. it’s fun

2. my baking hobby was making me gain too much weight
