I know, I know, I must be out of my mind. You've got to finish the thing in time for the event, or the order in time for the deadline, and and and...

I want to add another tool to your arsenal - another unlikely way to stop sewing being an exercise in frustration, and make it an escape to peace. It's so simple, and yet I know so many people who don't do this... try it and see if makes a difference for you, ok?




Hi Cathy, this is a such great advice! I'm new-ish to historical costuming but have been sewing since I was very little. I've noticed over the years that the quality of my work is directly related to the amount of mindfulness I am observing during the experience. Videos and podcasts are super for multitasking during basic tasks, but quiet music or silence is really helpful when I need to focus on measurements, tricky techniques or complex construction. smile
