Words of Sewing Wisdom from Singer

Sewing Advice from a 1949 Singer Sewing Manual! How to prepare yourself to sew!
Prepare yourself mentally for sewing.
Think about what you are going to do.
Never approach sewing with a sigh or lackadaisically.
Good results are difficult when indifference predominates.
Never try to sew with a sink full of dirty dishes or beds unmade.
When there are urgent housekeeping chores, do these first so your mind is free to enjoy your sewing.

 Put on a clean dress.

 When you sew, make yourself as attractive as possible.  

Keep a little bag full of French chalk near your sewing machine to dust your fingers at intervals.
 Have your hair in order, powder and lipstick put on. If you are constantly fearful that a visitor will drop in or your husband will come home and you will not look neatly put together, you will not enjoy your sewing as you should.”
I thought you would like a look at the past. Our reflections towards life have really changed in 60 some years.
In addition to the advise I would would like to add:
Make sure you have the best tools to do the job! Have fun when you sew and enjoy your craft. Learn to use your machine to it’s fullest and make sure to make yourself and someone happy with the items you sew.
I love to sew!
