HELPFUL TIP:

When planning a cast member's talents and skills, think about how genetics, personality traits (both positive attributes and flaws), past experiences, environment, and the character's roles (within a family, a community, and society) all factor into what strengths may form. These special qualities should tie into the story, not only to make the character interesting but also to help him achieve his goal.
DEFINITION:
Using a needle and thread to make or repair something

DESCRIPTION:
Sewing is one of the oldest textile arts. In early times, needles were fashioned from ivory, antler, and bone, and thread was made from veins and sinew. Sewing is a hobby to some and a skill for mending and re-purposing one’s family’s clothing to others, as well as a thriving industrialized business. This skill is used by those in the clothing and upholstery industries, and is used in the manufacture of many different types of cloth (sails, tarps, shoes, etc.). Sewing can also be applied to artistic ventures to creating art pieces, tapestries, embroidery and high fashion, and is used in medical fields during surgery and while attending to cuts and wounds.
