A Stitch in Time Saves Nine



I’ve always wondered where “a stitch in time, saves nine” comes from.  The best explanation I’ve found for this is in the first paragraphs at www.phrases.org.

The idea is that if you fix a hole or tear quickly with one stitch you won’t be needing 9 more!  That’s definitely a life lesson and it always helps to remember that putting things off sometimes really does make more work for us later.

So my homework to you (if you so choose it) is to grab that piece of clothing that needs a button or a hole sewn and take 5-10 minutes to fix it.  Send me a picture if you can and we’ll post everyone’s “stitch in time”.

Happy Sewing!!
