Halocho #1068 - May one sew on Yom Tov?

All 39 categories of "creative work" that are forbidden to do on Shabbos are also forbidden on Yom Tov, with some notable exceptions:

- In order to prepare food for Yom Tov one may knead, cook, bake and shecht (ritually slaughter).

- One may carry outside - even without an Eruv - on Yom Tov, as long as it's for some purpose, even if it's not food-related.

- One may light a flame from an existing flame on Yom Tov if it's for some useful purpose, even if it's not food-related. However, one may not light a Yahrzeit candle on YomTov.

- One may grind those spices on Yom Tov that would lose their flavor if ground before Yom Tov.

- One may sew up stuffed chicken on Yom Tov, but the needle needs to be threaded before Yom Tov.
