It’s September already. That means National Sewing Month! Albeit, every month is sewing month around here. I’d also include sewing for service to others this month.
This year I would urge all sewist to add sewing for service to others during this month and find those in need in your area. Cold weather is coming soon. It’s a busy time I know. Children going back to school and holidays are fast on the horizon. A few minutes to sew for others can make a world of difference. Get in a group or create one. Having fun is so much a part of sewing too.
If you’d like,share and tag your makes and giving projects on your fave social media sites with #SeptSew or #nationalsewingmonth. Be sure to visit American Sewing Guild and Sewing & Craft Alliance who foster National Sewing Month every year.
