Hand sewing is an essential skill that every girl needs to possess. The old adage is “a stitch in time saves nine.” This means that small, timely repairs can eliminate the need for much larger repairs later, or even the ruin of the garment. Making timely repairs can make garments last much longer. Plus, knowing how to make repairs, sew buttons, fix hems, and do other such maintenance will help a girl to learn to care for her own things and be helpful to others.
