National Sewing Month

Did you know we have a national sewing month? Neither did I! Though it doesn’t surprise me since we have holidays for every type of family relation. And a groundhog.

But while searching the web for sewing tips and tricks as I often like to do, I stumbled across the website for National Sewing Month. Per the website, “the observance of National Sewing Month began in 1982 with a proclamation from President Ronald Reagan declaring September as National Sewing Month ‘in recognition of the importance of home sewing to our Nation.’ “

And there’s even a contest. And boy, do I love winning things. Ergo, I love contests.

Here’s the flyer for this year’s contest:

Anybody out there that sews (I think that’d be you, Laura Lindeman, if you’re reading!) should have some fun and enter the contest. I’m going to. Rules and deadlines are posted on the website. And they have some neat free projects and articles for anyone interested.

I needed a new project, so this is good incentive to get started on something.
