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.

For

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.
