Today is the anniversary of the 1846 patent on the sewing machine and is celebrated as Sew Be It Day! Sacred to the goddess Athena, needle arts are a way to do subtle and powerful magic. Even the simplest act of repair can be strong magic. A basic basket of needles, pins, thread, and scissors can be found in almost every household. To bless your sewing
tools, place them on your altar. Light a blue candle and use lavender incense. Call in the blessings of each element to the tools, the basket, and your sewing. Call in Athena and present your sewing tools to her for blessing. Then say:
By spool and thread, my wishes are spread; with magic and pins, my magic begins. As I will it so mote it be with your blessings three times three.
Thank Athena and the elements.
