I can remember far back in the days how my grandma used to manually play with the needle and thread she had previously bought at a nearby shop.
Hours would be spent in complete silence, with me carefully observing a magician at work.
It was magic to me to say the least, watching how with just a bit of fabric and a few strike with the needle, one could become a creator.
It took some time, I grant you that but that is because my grandma was constrained with the realities of her time.
Her financial status just never allowed her to pursue a sewing machine, which was very expensive in the past.
As she swung her needle time and time again, her firm posture indicating her dedication to the craft, the thread carefully lining up to a perfect spot.
That would just go on and on and on…
I was always fascinated by the entire process, how something that is without farm, one could turn into virtually anything, becoming a more independent and revered human being.
From sweatpants to sweatshirts, from rugs to slippers, the options were limitless.
This is what really invigorated me, the freedom and creativity to do what I want and how I want it.
My name is Joe and I have been sewing things ever since I was eleven years old.
Teach You To Sew has been created with only one purpose in mind:
To bring you the truth and nothing but the trust when it came to materials, machines and all the other appliances used in the entire process.
Ever since I first got my sewing machine, I realized that it had its good sides and bad sides.
Later on, as I had the pleasure to test some of the other models that were prominent on the market, I realized that just like humans- Sewing machine all had different sorts of flavors and personalities to them.
That meant only one thing: As their personalities differed so greatly, so did their relationships with the materials being used.
Some liked tougher materials and thrived on them while others would disappoint in that sphere.
Quite coincidentally, the reverse would be the truth if the material were changed.
That made me realize that no one sewing machine was perfect and that there was balance in all things.
I immediately knew what had to be done: Write my experiences down for other enthusiasts to enjoy, so that they too have an idea what is awaiting them in their journey!
It hasn’t always been easy and sometimes I felt myself struggling but I didn’t falter as I knew that the number of people this website would benefit far outweighs any sort of pain I had felt at that moment.
I powered through and am now proud to announce that this website is one of my proudest achievements on this little blue planet of ours.
I hope that you too can reap from the vast pot of knowledge this website has become and I wish you a great stay on our website!
