Buying and Sewing Handmade
As a child, my mother sewed the majority of our
clothes out of financial necessity. They were always beautiful and truly better made than store-bought clothing.
As an adult, I sew because I truly love to sew. I pride myself in crafting something truly unique.
this reason, I prefer to buy handmade if possible. I know that each crafter works very hard to produce a quality
item and that each product is made with love and care, much more so than something made in China or India.
Furthermore, I know that my money might be supporting a family who truly needs the money to survive. Many handmade
products come from work-at-home moms who are trying to help support their family, as I am with The Craft Cobbler.
It pleases me greatly that the money I do have to spend on such purchases goes to help another American family.
