Very Important Advice for Sewing from 1949

1940s sewing manual

My favorite bits from the Singer sewing manual:

  • Never sew with a sink full of dishes.
  • Make yourself as attractive as possible.
  • If you look like a mess and fear drop-in visitors (or your husband’s sudden arrival??), you won’t enjoy your sewing.

Though to be fair, I have a hard time doing anything creative if my place feels messy. It distracts me. But I have no problem working on tasks without a lick of makeup on.
