07. Tools- The Sewing Machine

With this project I wanted to use permaculture design as applied to a tool.  A tool?  Yup, a tool.  According to Holmgren this is about decentralising the use of tools and encouraging people to engage with crafts again as well as becoming more self sufficient.  I use my bike all the time to get around, and bike maintenance is high up on my list of designs that I want to do. But in this case, something else came higher up the agenda: a sewing machine.

A had been given a sewing machine from my great aunt, and didn’t know how to use it.  This was my chance to figure it out.  Read about my Permaculture Sewing Machine Adventures here
