I'm "sew" happy when I sew, because I'm creating.

Anna said...

It is a stress reliever but I also love making something out of other things - the finished product is what keeps me coming back to the machine.

Renee said...

It is a hobby I can do with my toddler playing near by, and it is a wonderful way to express my creativity!

stephmabry said...

Sewing is definitely a stress reliever for me - my job doesn't really make me feel like I accomplish anything (lots of paper-pushing!) so being able to create tangible objects is definitely a plus!!

Thanks for the chance to win!

Mom C said...

I can completely lose myself sewing. It is incredibly relaxing. It is also very soul satisfying as I see my creations come to fulfillment.

It makes me feel productive, it gives me an excuse to buy beautiful fabric, and gives me a creative outlet.

Rebecca said...

As a mom of 4 little ones (ages 5, 3-year-old TWINS, and 1), sewing is VERY much a stress-relieving creative outlet for me. With all the tasks that are very soon "un-done" as a homemaker, it's so rewarding to begin a sewing project, enjoy the process, and have a finished piece at the end that can't be "un-done" :)

Creativity, stress relief, and hopefully comforting somebody less fortunate than me with the end product.

Sewing puts me right in my "zone". Sometimes I don't even hear the phone ringing in the other room!

Lindsay said...

I am sew happy when I sew because it gives me a chance to do something other than school working and thinking about medicine and science.

Dawn said...

Sewing makes me happy because it makes me feel productive. Being a stay-at-home mom of two toddlers, whatever I sew (or knit/crochet) is the only thing that stays done in my house. At the end of a day full of cleaning, cooking, and playing, I have nothing concrete to show for my time except for what I manage to create.

Dawn said...

Emily said...

I love the process. Creating something is stress releaving

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

Sewing is a lifestyle for me - I feel like I have wasted time if I don't sew every day!

Mary on Lake Pulaski said...

I receive you newsletter.

heather said...

For me sewing is a great stress reliever. Not much beats working away the morning in your sewing room with a warm cuppa at your side. :)

Pamela Nees said...

Sewing to me is one of those things that is my daily therapy. Something is dreadfully wrong with my day if I don't get any sewing in. Even if it's only 20-30 minutes...I can get lots of things done in that amount of time...cut strips, plan a block, piece a strippy mug rug...you get the idea!

Sewing is needful for me!

DianeY said...

The happy look on my grandkids faces is enough to make me happy!

April said...

I love to sew because it reminds me of watching my mom sew me and my sister's things when I was younger.

Sewing is a very relaxing thing do do and also keeps restless hands busy when watching TV (don't like to waste my time just sitting). I love the sense of achievement when something is finished too.

Patty D from NC said...

I love sewing because it provides a creative outlet and reduces stress. Except when it causes stress relieved by my seam ripper.

Jen S said...

I find sewing relaxing, but more than that, I revel in the sense of accomplishment I feel when completing a project.

Sewing is my "me" time. After I get my two girls to sleep, and hubby is occupied with his own pursuits, I can sit quietly in my sewing room with a cup of tea and not be bothered for an hour

Jodie said...

I just like making things. And since I have little kids at home, it's fun to have something to do besides pick up their toys!

Mom2RyandSis said...

Sewing makes me sew happy because it is a stress relieving hobby that I wish would become a lifestyle.

Beth said...

I'm a quilter and it makes me happy because it combines a desire to be artistic with an opportunity to be generous. I create something, a process that makes me happy, and give it to someone else, which makes them happy. I often wonder if my grandmother felt the same way--in a very practical life, being creative was okay because it was useful and beneficial.

Thanks for the giveaway.

TIS said...

Even just the beauty of the fabrics themselves, their color and design, excite my creative juices and get me ready to jump in to a project! Sewn pieces can be fine art and fine craftwork at the same time.

Heather A said...

Quilting, though I'm new at it, is my therapy after going through a pretty awful and continuing health scare. I love the distraction it provides ... I really need to concentrate on it ... and it gives me endless images to dream about. And, most importantly, I feel I'm leaving a legacy for my family and friends ... just in case ...

For me, sewing is a hobby, but it makes me "sew" happy because I get to give handmade gifts. Handmade gifts just seem so much more thought out and special. I love trying to learn to make new things.

Sewing is a satisfyingly tactile experience. My hands can get right in there and I can create things internally, verbally, but have have them manifest physically before my eyes. I never use patterns, rather have a rough idea and allow my method and execution to change and I go. It's a chance to allow the material to let me know what it wants to do and I facilitate. It feels mutually beneficial.

Plus I get bragging rights... when someone comments on one of my creations, I can proudly and geekily respond with the words, "Thanks. I made it!"
