Hobbies, Why is it important?

Why do you need a hobby? Hobbies make us a happier person! Hobbies are important for both adults and kids. As adults, we may say who has time for hobbies? Everyone seems so busy! Between running the kids to dance and piano lessons, working and keeping a tidy house. Who has time for  a hobby?

Various things contribute to this, but many of us, we love to say we are busy, but simply isn’t true. Instead, we waste time, creating the illusion of busyness. We spend hours on end browsing social media such as Facebook, twitter, email, binge watching on Netflix or amazon – pick one! I am guilty of it as well! We all are!  Imagine if you can use that time and do something fun!

Having a hobby that we enjoy brings us joy and enriches our lives! It is a great stress relief! A hobby ignites your creativity! A hobby opens your mind to new possibilities. If your looking for social interactions – then definitely pick a hobby! Sign up for a class at a local studio. A hobby opens up doors to meet new people. Hobbies encourages you to interact with people in ways that doesn’t give you social anxiety. Hobbies  gives us something fun to do. We are very fortunate to have so many different options! The best way to cultivate a hobby is to try something new. The opportunity to learn a new skill is always exciting for me!  We live in a wonderful world that is full of exciting activities that we can explore and make us our own. We have the world wide web as well to explore and learn from!  There are too many choices – you just have to find which one you love! If learning online using Youtube videos doesn’t work for you – then check out local studios! I think there is a studio for each and every hobby you can imagine! Oh! And, a hobby allows for additional income. 

 

Why is it important for kids to have a hobby?

Kids are busy learning specific materials during their academic year.  Learning skills through a hobby or extracurricular activity is important in a different way.

As a child,  you see everything as something new. Kids are always exploring who they are, what they enjoy, and what they are good at. Hobbies provide an excellent opportunity for kids to learn a new skill and develop in ways academic pursuits can’t always provide.

If your child shows even a small interest in something – jump on it! Find ways to help them! Encourage them but never force it on them! They may stick with it for years or may only last a few weeks. You never know until you allow them to explore and learn.

This holiday season encourage someone to develop a hobby.  Give them the gift of learning /experience this new year! Ask them what they are interested in learning. Help them by giving them the tools and assistance to develop that new hobby! This will definitely be a gift that they will remember and treasure! Call your local studios and ask them if they offer gift certificates!

And, if you are in Brevard or nearby town  and interested in sewing or taking art classes! Call us! We have gift certificates!

The benefits of learning to sew…

The benefits of learning to sew...

I have always love to make my own things as a child. I grew up watching my mother sew. She would either sew things for us or for her clients.

We make learning to sew fun! My mother and I love teaching kids and adults!

There are so many benefits in learning to sew. Besides the obvious reason of being able to sew a button, hem a pants or mend a clothing, kids are learning the following things:

1. Promotes consumer awareness – yes, it may be a heavy topic especially for the little ones. But, I believe it’s very important in today’s society. They learn how things are made. It’s so easy to go to the store and buy things when it’s broken. But, sewing teaches a child of the process and appreciate things. They learn to value things and actually will fix things before thinking of replacing it.

2. Fine motor skills. Develop and mature their finger dexterity.

3. Find and build their confidence.

4. Problem solving – kids learn to troubleshoot their machine or project.

5. Brings math to life! All those seam allowance – fractions and measurements….

6. Learn a copious amounts of patience!

7. Meet new friends with the same interest!

8. I almost forgot! Your child is not just learning to sew but they’re using their IMAGINATION! I have seen students come up with ideas that are so beautiful and amazing!

 There are so many benefits to sewing!

Have I convinced you now? 

And, now what should you do? If you know how to sew and have the patience to teach your child, then go for it! Introduce your love for sewing and creating things to your child. Use this time as a way to bond and build memories with your little one.  

If you do not know how to sew, I recommend checking your local hobby store ( if we are far from you! 😉 ) But, if we are – feel free to call us! We are happy to assist!
