Ann of Gorgeous Things put that simple sentence in her last post and of all the information there, that's what I latched onto! *smile* The reason that I latched onto it was that for years I did sew to save money.
I also didn't have a large stash of fabric. There were a couple of bins but not the proliferation that lives with me now...and a pattern...a pattern was used until I couldn't use it anymore because I didn't purchase as many as I do now. All of this to say that yes...at one point I did sew to save money.
I'm in a different stage of life now. My kids are grown. I'm no longer married and I have a much more demanding, well-paying job. So my priorities have changed. I sew for pleasure now. I sew to have the wardrobe I want. I sew because I can...but sewing to save money...no that's no longer apart of my lexicon.
So what about you? Do you sew to save money? Or do you just sew for the pleasure of it?
Let me know, cause this is the question of the day!
