i guess i am still in a big city so i will keep posting these tiny, maybe inane, sometimes helpful sewing tips…

there are times when my sewing is getting the better of me. like i worry i can’t nail the topstitching i need to do on a finicky piece of leather. i get really tense, sort of shy away from the work as i sew, and feel a separation from it. but then i realized i had to do the opposite. the classic “tell it who’s boss” approach was the way to go. and i relax into my sewing, remember feeling confidant and sew. that’s the attack part. try it, it works. and at the very least it helps.
