The Secret Life of Machines taught me how incredible sewing machines are. However to do anything useful with them requires a lot of skill and a lot of practice.

Cost-wise, sewing is rarely useful nowadays - for anything you can get at a major retailer the retail fabric cost alone to make a garment often exceeds the price of the same finished item, so not even factoring time, you're already behind.

I sew, and entertained the thought of making my own stuff, but working out the numbers I'd probably be even or ahead if I just moonlighted at Starbucks instead and bought it. If you want to make something unique, well, I guess there's that, but look to the videos for "unique" fashions and realize why most major clothing designs don't change very much, they just cycle the current trends.

Do they have Fabricland stores in America? We have them in Canada and for the cost of membership you get some amazing discounts on fabric and trim. I've made two full body jumpsuits that cost around in materials.

Sewing can be useful if you have weird proportions or don't like the clothes that are available in stores. My boyfriend is 6ft tall and 140 pounds with a 28 inch waist so pants that fit are hard to find.

Not that I know of, but there are plenty of affordable, non-chain fabric stores around, at least in New England. I think it's down to whether you're comparing it to the most affordable, utilitarian, slave-labor clothes or astronomically overpriced designer stuff (that's probably also made by slave labor).

All this new stuff needs a Crazy Dave tag, or at least CDTCrew.

Those who had one of the widely copied Star Wars Christmas Special tapes fell into one of two camps: the American Sewing Association or the Frizzy Fighters (at Eleven).

Damn, I got this video mixed up with something else before watching it.

I had to use a sewing machine to repair my trousers after watching this video.

Are we sure this is just about sewing?
