What does the slow sewing movement mean to you? When I think about it, it brings images of the farm-to-table of the slow food movement.
According to a Wikipedia entry on the slow movement, it all began in the late 1980s as a cultural shift to slowing down life's fast pace. The movement was summarized decades later as
This, in theory, is a great philosophy. It is the[A] cultural revolution against the notion that faster is always better. The Slow philosophy is not about doing things at a snail's pace. It's about seeking to do everything at the right speed. Savoring the hours and minutes rather than just counting them. Doing everything as well as possible, instead of as fast as possible. It's about quality over quantity in everything from work to food to parenting (Honore).
