Offline is the new luxury
Screens are everywhere, even on sewing machines, inundating us with information, entertainment and content to consume. A little bit of hand sewing could be just the remedy we need to provide a balance.
American piecing, is a technique where the fabric pieces are cut and seam lines are drawn directly on to the fabric. The challenge is to cut and draw accurately and make sure the running stitch follows the seam line exactly.
A benefit of American Piecing is that you don’t need a lot of supplies and it is portable. Instead of pulling out your phone next time you want to relax, perhaps you might like to pull out some hand sewing?
