A hand sewer is a professional who sews textile goods by hand. Many hand sewers make clothing, while others focus on curtains, upholstery and other fabric goods. Although many tasks formerly done by hand sewers are now automated by giant mechanical looms, hand sewing is still invaluable in many applications, including embroidery, beading and bespoke clothing creation.
