Needle work

A very rewarding and satisfying hobby is needle work. This is a term that describes any handicraft that involves a needle. Knitting, crocheting and embroidery all fall into this category. You can make needle work as simple or as complicated as you like but I’m sure after some time and effort you could have made something to be proud of. A more practice and everyday application is repairing cloths. This can save money and increase the life span of your cloths.

Needle work has been on the demise for a number of years now, but there has been a recent surge in the amount of young people that are getting involved in knitting circles. This is great as it would seem that needle work is a skill that is dieing out. Dexterity and good hand eye coordination are good competencies to have but they will get better there more needle work you do.

Embroidery is a good place to start and is simply the decoration of fabric by stitching coloured yarn or thread into patterns. Pearls, jewels and sequins can all be used to create the desired affect and it can be a good way to personalize cloths. The possibilities really are endless when it comes to needle work, and you can really let your imagination run wild. I would recommend needle work to anyone as a relaxing yet rewarding hobby.
