Look for Hidden Sewing Fears

Creativity makes us feel vulnerable. Sometimes we have hidden fears around our own shortcomings, our self-image, or what other people might think. We'll talk about what some of the common fears around sewing are, and how we deal with them.

It’s time to talk about your hidden sewing fears. Are there unexamined fears that are lurking around your brain, quietly killing your creativity?

In this episode, we look at some common fears that plague sewists, and discuss some of the fears that hold us back personally. We’ll talk about where some of these fears come from, why they’re perfectly normal, and how you can recognize them and address them.
