Hand Sewing & Embroidery
Click on the videos below to learn how to repair clothing or just add a little creativity.
In an extreme off-grid lifestyle taking care of a garden, wood cutting, fishing or even just hiking can lead to torn clothing. Likewise, if an EMP takes down the grid there will be no shopping mall with deep discounts on the latest fashions. It will be up to you to repair the clothing you have and make it do. Most people don't think of sewing as a survival skill, but fixing that 8 inch tear in your favorite pair of jeans can suddenly be a priority when out in the wilderness.
How does embroidery fit into an extreme off-grid lifestyle? It is a creative and beautiful pastime for those long off-grid days without TV, the Internet or a cell phone. A creative outlet can help bring cheer and a sense of accomplishment to an otherwise dull day.
