Why Sew when clothes are so cheap?

Do people ask you that question?  Or maybe, ” I used to sew but it’s not worth it these days is it?” 

I sew for lots of reasons:

  • Some things are cheaper if you don’t count the hours of work;
  • There will be no one wearing the same clothes as me (they probably wouldn’t want to either, but that’s another matter);
  • It cuts down how much I have to worry about people working in near slavery to make things for me;
  • Could it be greener? I hope so, but I’m not sure – maybe depends on the fabric;
  • The excitement as a garment, bag or quilt emerges;
  • The sheer pleasure of trying on the finished article (usually!)

Happiness is making something.

Anyone else like to add anything?
