Included in the realm of 'Sewing' are needlepoint, embroidery, cross stich, garment sewing, and my personal favorite quilting, to name a few. Each of these categories have made important contributions to the home sewing industry, the industrial and manufacturing industries, and are significant in history world wide.
Here's an interesting and prophetic statement made by Thomas Jefferson to his daughter.
"In the country life of America there are moments when a woman can have recourse to nothing but her needle for employment. When one is in dull company and it is poor taste to read, or simply leave, the needle is a valuable resource".
Good advice and still viable today whether one is a country girl or a city girl.
I'll add to that and say, "With needle, thread, fabric, or yarn in hand, one need never be bored".
A Sewing Basket or two or three are a must! Don't you agree?
Happy National Sewing Month!
