It´s OK to hate sewing….

Me, sewing away before bed time. Mindfulness…

It´s OK to hate sewing….

When it comes to sewing I´ve always loved the lovely flow – state that sewing by hand creates. I really really like sewing by hand. But to be totally honest I´m not crazy in love with the sewing machines:-) I rather see them as a part of the creative journey of making clothes.

Before I started to work with my first sewing producer back in the day, I made every item in my collections myself. I´ve sewn miles and miles on the machine, so I know the craft inside and out:) and I truly appreciate my fellow sewers that love every inch of the sewing process, even including the machine-part:).

For me the vision of what you want to create has always been the main thing, but having the knowledge and technique of sewing in my backbone helps me make wise decisions while designing.

So whenever you feel that aggression toward the sewing machine emerge – relax. Take a break, drink some tea, eat a muffin. You do not have to love it. Sewing machines can be extremely annoying creatures:).
Do not rush, just breathe calmly:) and remember that you can always sew by hand like I do. It just takes a little longer:).
