MasterNi’s take on Embroidery as her hobby.
Many of you wonder what do I do when I go home and how I unwind, honestly, I love my work and I really don’t need to unwind after going home.
However, I understand the importance of downtime, it helps me look at things from different perspectives. The most common activities that I indulge in to are going out for a walk or a jog and something unusual I do which is even my personal favorite is Embroidery. Basic simple stitches that help me keep my hands and mind at bay.
I might not be great at it, but I aspire to learn it to perfection. Youtube is one platform that I regularly visit for the upgrading myself. I am constantly in the endeavor to learn a new stitch and give it a try.
One of the best things about the embroidery is it takes away the screen time, I don’t end up being on Insta and Facebook and mindlessly scrolling through the feed.
One of the byproducts of this is my children also get curious about the uncanny thing that I am taking a deep interest in. But it definitely helps in bringing the past to the present.
For me, it is a hobby but a lot of people make a great vocation out of this work, I know of so many NGOs that work with rural women and empowers them. it has made a lot of artisans much better off, this is something that we need to preserve to stay relevant.
As Indians we have a rich heritage it is our duty to keep it intact not just by creating posters about it but actually doing it.
I had a lovely discussion with Ms. Jasmine who is a part of our esteemed parent community as well as someone who has taken her hobby of embroidery as a vocation. She shares her wonderful journey of how did she come about this. It was delightful to know about her experience of working with the rural artisans.
We would love to know about your hobbies, and if you also love embroidery, I would like to connect with you to know your perspective.
