    It depends on the kind of work. Writing-machine, sewing-both, anything in the kitchen-machine.

    While I often work with a machine (computer), I prefer work done by hand.  Usually working with your hands means working with a community of others.  I find communal work and interacting with others to be the most enjoyable sort of work.

    I prefer to do things by hand.  I feel as though I'm saving resources;namely electricity and/or gasoline which in turn saves me money.   Of course if there are time constraints then I will turn to technology.
    Making things such as bread, clothes, etc gives me a good feeling.

    Depends on what kind of work.
    For crafts & Handiwork, some have to be made by hand, and for those can be worked with machines, machines mean productive and higher-level-quality.

    I make fabric pictures by hands (have to), and use machines to make fashion clothing, as pictures in my hub: Hui Lady Dress @
