I love sewing. Unfortunately, being a “Textile Artist” can be dangerous.
Yep. I totally sewed through my finger. It hurt. Bad. I yanked my finger back and busted my sewing needle. I held pressure on the wound until I got a band aid. As I removed the pressure, I noticed it wasn’t bleeding. Why? Because I made a complete stitch in my finger!! It didn’t bleed until I pulled the the thread out. Nasty.
I just learned a valuable first aid skill. In an emergency, the sewing machine will apply adequate stitches.
