5 Reasons Why Men Should Sew

Quintin Xavier Roper

I don’t know about you, but I refuse to believe that any activity, especially anything related to the arts, is gender specific.  The way I see it, sewing takes the same skill level as carpentry, woodwork, and even plumbing.  You have to know your tools and materials well to create and fix stuff.  Its 2011, and if you consider yourself the leader of your own destiny, at least consider these reasons why you should take up the sport of sewing.

5.  Do your own alterations – In the event that you have dress pants that are two long, or the sleeves on your shirt are a little wonky, you don’t have to hunt down seamstress to make the repairs for you.  In fact, keeping a needle and thread at your place can save you hundreds of dollars per month if you are willing to dedicate a little bit more time in your appearance, pretty boy.

4.  Do your girl’s alterations – If you are looking for ways to get close to females… enough said.  There is a lot you can do with measuring tap and a smile. I’m just saying.

Personalize your gear -  Some of us like to take that extra step in making our garments unique.  Your neighborhood sewing shop is equipped with inexpensive lettering, patches, logos, and swatches that can add a special touch to what you wear.  2.  Solve the missing button dilemma - We all have experienced it.  You look down and there's a button gone from your shirt, or worse, your jeans!  Luckily a sewing kit is small enough to keep in your glove compartment or satchel for a quick fix as needed.    1.  Sneaker repair - While some of us are more inclined to just throw a damaged pair away, if you are hoping to extend the life of your shoes a leather needle can be your best friend.  Just make sure the thread is the exact color of the area you are trying to patch up, and no one will notice.
