The importance of sewing

September is the sewing month in the United States.
Ronald Reagan, president of USA, in 1982 recognized its importance for his nation and proclaimed September as the sewing month.
I often stopped to think about what sewing means for me, especially since I opened BowPawTie.
I believe that, however, a definitive answer does not exist.
I started as a child, practically self-taught, with the clothes of my dolls and I continue today, years later, with dog accessories.
Is it an hobby? A passion? A job?
Perhaps all these things together, but most of all a form of personal expression.
When I sew, I really feel myself and I express myself, in a completely natural way, with the tools at my disposal.
Machine or handmade does not matter.
It's my comfort zone, full of solid certainties with which to manage, in an original way, the requests of my customers. It's a comfort zone but does not limit my possibilities of growing and learning. It's a family environment that does not "close" me but puts me in touch with the world.
It's a comfort zone but without the limits of its conception. It's my natural size.
The origin of this art is lost in the mists of time, although many tend to confuse it with the advent of industrial sewing machines in the nineteenth century.
Invented in fact in 1750 they were perfected by Isaac Singer almost a century later in 1851, whose idea became the industrial standard.
Would you like an original idea to celebrate the sewing month? An handmade gift.
Created by yourself or buought from crafter does not matter, but give importance to this art!
