Sewing is more than just a hobby

Sewing is good for you

Something a little different for you this week... a guest post all about how sewing is good for your health. I know lots of you have been taking part in #smyly, and here are more reasons why sewing is more than just a way to pass the time. How many of these are truisms for you?
First, a little bit about our guest blogger...

Sally is a professional freelance writer with many years experience across many different areas. She made the move to freelancing from a stressful corporate job and loves the work-life balance it offers her. When not at work, Sally enjoys reading, hiking, spending time with her family and travelling as much as possible.

The Different Ways Sewing Is More Than Just A Hobby

Sewing is a hobby that transcends across the various income groups, a recent study reveals. Where many of the other hobbies are limited to the income participants earn, such as many of the sports that require expensive equipment, sewing fills the gap between low and high-income earners. This means the sewing is one of those hobbies that tend to bring people from all walks of life together. It opens up new doors of friendship, but also happens to tick a few boxes when it comes to hobby satisfaction.

The Opportunity to Gain Financial Freedom

Those who have a knack for needle and thread also have the opportunity to create items for others. Whether this is clothing, bedding, or other related items, a unique approach often fills the gap that department stores rarely do. When this happens, there is the opportunity to earn additional funds and possibly even create a secondary income which could turn into a main source of income. A good business plan and marketing strategy are often the only things that stand in the way of those who have a sewing gift from making it as a small business.

A Great Way to Meet New Friends

The fastest way to learn how to sew is through sewing classes and circles. These classes are filled with like-minded people who share your interest in this great hobby, and who are there to learn the same skill. When this happens, the opportunity to make new friends arises as everyone works towards the same goal. Friendships formed in a sewing circle often last a lifetime as they share patterns and work on similar projects. Those who have the skills to host a sewing circle or class, also have the opportunity to earn an income from this.

Sewing is more than just a hobby

The Chance to Showcase Personal Style

In a world where everything is generic and mass-produced, it’s great to have the opportunity to showcase a personal style and perhaps even create a personal brand. Whether clothing or other items, there is no limit to the styles and combinations.

It’s Good for Your Health

Stress is one of the leading causes of death and illness and hobbies are proven to deal with this stress. Not only does it distract the brain from stressful situations, it also allows the brain to focus on challenges and opportunities out of the stressful situation.

The gentle purr of the sewing machine as the stitches line up one after the other is one of the keenest pleasures for those who take up this hobby. With more than just a recreational benefit, sewing provides a release in many different areas of life.

I know that for me, a lot of these are so true, and contribute a lot to the reasons I love to sew? What about you? What makes sewing more than just a hobby?
