There are plenty of productive hobbies out there in the world. One of the most useful I have found is sewing. Sewing can instill discipline and creativity in someone, one can even have a business because of this skill. There are a multitude of reasons you should learn how to sew.

Here are  a few reasons you should learn how to sew:

  1. Mending your own clothing will save you money. Instead of buying new clothes you can just make simple repairs to extend its lifespan.
  2. Learning to repair and alter clothes can improve the piece significantly. You can change the buttons to more expensive ones, making your clothes fit better can make you stand out more.
  3. Practicing sewing will enable you to get creative, finding new ways to improve your clothes. Upgrading an off-the-rack piece to couture.
  4. Learning how to sew will enable you to make your own clothes. You have free reign to do as you please choose your own fabric, choose the color, change the fit and more.     
  5. Sewing is a productive hobby to do during down time. Sewing will bring out and nurture your creativity.
