Take Your Pleasure Seriously

"Take Your Pleasure Seriously"

This Charles Eames's quotation is definitely our motto!

 

"For Eames this meant turning design—his pleasure—into his work, but that may not be the best course of action for everyone. Sometimes it just means taking your hobbies and interests more seriously, rather than relegating them to the time you can scrounge up here and there. Make them important, because having fun and enjoying yourself is important." (from here)

 

We want to live in a world where everyone takes their pleasure seriously.

Why? Because the time we give to taking care of ourselves is the best investment we can make – it helps us do everything else better in life.

Following our pleasures isn’t just fun, it’s essential for self-care. In a busy, chaotic, 24-7 world, they’re the one thing that can help us find our way back to ourselves.

We are living a moment where manual crafts are getting more attention, as people are realizing that is a good way to slowdown and relax from the day to day.

Manual activities are also very good to shut down all the turmoil in your head, allowing you to free up your mind in order to appreciate more what really matters in life. And, who knows, having your hands occupied will help you find that answer for a problem you're looking for a while!

By investing in manual crafts, we are investing in ourselves. Stitching alone, or together in community, we are also stitching ourselves into a calmer peace of mind.

Happy stitching,
