The benefits of sewing

For Everyone:
  • Reduced Stress

    Sewing encourages mindfulness and reduces stress and anxiety. The meditative action of sewing encourages positivity and feelings of relaxation.

  • Improved Motor Skills

    Sewing enhances motor skills. The attention to detail that sewing requires encourages hand-eye-coordination and improves a person’s ability to concentrate.

  • Stimulates Creativity

    Sewing requires creativity, which improves the brain’s ability to grow new brain cells.

  • Boost Positivity

    Like other craft activities, sewing increases dopamine in the brain, which makes us feel more positive.

  • Encourages Focus

    Because sewing makes you remember specific steps, it works the brain and keeps the mind clear, focused and active. This can help prevent dementia as you grow older.
