September-National Sewing Month 2017

It’s September Makers! That means it’s National Sewing Month! Who’s ready for a month of sewing to un-stash that growing fabric stash? I know I’m way over due for some un-stashing. Or maybe it’s a great time to get that mending done and organise that fabric like STH did over at Living in Color . (totally impressed with her fabric stash database)

Whatever you have planned for sewing or just starting to plan a sewing project….

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 and sharing is so much a part of sewing too.

Be sure to share your creations photo and tag them on your fave social media sites with #nationalsewingmonth. Oh and if you know or hear of fellow sewists or quilters down in TX or LA affected by the storms that need to replenish their stash, lets share what we have. I’d be glad to share some of my fabric with churches too. What do you think? You in?

Be sure to visit American Sewing Guild facebook page (HQ is based in Houston,TX) to offer any well wishes or solace, and also Sewing & Craft Alliance who foster National Sewing Month every year.

Happy September Sewing~Cheers

Excerpt from the 1982 President Reagan Proclamation 4976:

“…Tens of millions of Americans sew at home. Their efforts demonstrate the industry, the skill and the self-reliance which are so characteristic of this Nation.

In recognition of the importance of home sewing to our economy the Congress has, by Senate Joint Resolution 205, designated September, 1982, as National Sewing Month…”

  1. Good luck un-stashing. The more that I sew, the more fabric I have…..I have no idea how that happens. I think it is Sami, The Wonder Dogs fault. 🙂
