A recent study found that out of several stress-reducing activities, like playing cards, painting, reading, and sewing, the latter actually takes the cake as the most relaxing. Sewing can be your sweet escape from the things in your day that make you the most stressed.
2. Advances Hand-Eye Coordination
Sewing, knitting, quilting, and other related activities play a “helping hand” in your hand-eye coordination. You will enhance and advance your motor skills through the attention-to-detail required. Watch as you improve on other everyday tasks as well!
3. The Craftroom is my Happy Place
While you’re sewing, knitting, crocheting, quilting, or crafting just about anything else, your brain rewards you with a nice boost in dopamine, AKA, your happy hormone! Your reward comes even before the task is completed.
4. Get Your Brain in the Gym
Like the rest of your body, your brain needs exercise to stay in good shape. Sewing keeps your brain active and concentrated, which might even boost your memory! Forget about forgetting, sewing has the power to lower the risk of dementia.
The act of constantly trying something different or learning new tricks, patterns, and methods opens many brain doors. Sewing has been shown to encourage the formation of new neurons in the brain due to the repeated creative thinking process.
5. Goodnight, Sleep Tight
Exercising your brain during the day by sewing pushes it into well-deserved sleep at night. If you’re awake again at 3 am, though, use sewing to reset by working on any sewing project for a while. Then go back to sleep. Sleeplessness gone, project done!
Sewing is meant to be fun, pain-free and stress-free, regardless of age. Now that you know these benefits, I bet you never want to quit!

"This light just came in handy for my aging eyes. I have a hard time concentrating on sewing straight lines with the built-in light. Now I can see it very clear due to its fantastic natural hue lighting. The installation is a breeze and it came with great instruction and diagram. I definitely recommend this product to all sewers."
