I wanted to share with you a curious conversation I had earlier this month with my sewing machine.
To my surprise, when I turned it on, it let out a silent yawn. 🥱 Perplexed, I asked it what was wrong, and it responded in a melancholic tone that it felt bored and unfulfilled just sewing straight stitches. As you can imagine, this took me a little off guard. I never thought my machine was sentient, let alone had such strong feelings about its sewing projects. Yet, as I listened attentively, it became clear to me that it was craving something more- something diverse, complex, and exciting. Something that would awaken its creative spirit and make sewing feel like a true adventure once again.
