Abstract or Summary
  • This study investigated the relationships between motivation for sewing and: amount of sewing, perceived depersonalization of the job, and creativity among employed women. Sewing for creativity and sewing for economic reasons were the two motivations investigated. Previous studies indicated that sewing for economic reasons was the prevalent motivation for sewing. Current literature has indicated that sewing for creativity may also be an important motivation. Studies have also indicated that leisure activities may compensate for characteristics perceived to be lacking in the job. The possibility that sewing for creativity might be this type of leisure activity was also investigated in this study. The study was limited to home sewers who were full-time employees. A sample was collected of women who had taken a sewing class at a retail fabric store, and who worked over 30 hours per week. Fifty women who returned completed questionnaires were included in this study. Measures of sewing for creativity, sewing for economic reasons, and perceived depersonalization of the job were developed. All of these measures were tested for validity by item analysis and for reliability by test-retest. The measure of creativity was also tested for validity by item analysis. The findings indicated positive relationships at a significant level between sewing for creativity and: amount of sewing, and number of children out of school who lived at home. Sewing for economic reasons was positively related at a significant level to: age of the respondent, and number of children who lived at home. Sewing for creativity was not significantly related to perceived depersonalization of the job.
