Most folks around here think every month is sewing month. But, it is nice to have an entire month with the spotlight on sewing. In celebration of NSM, all month long the editors of Sew News, Creative Machine Embroidery and Sew It All magazines will be telling and showing you why sewing is the bees knees. We’ll have our favorite tips, free patterns, plus a special giveaway just for kids (and the parents or grandparents who love to sew for them).
And, don’t forget, we have a sew along happening too in September. The Weekender Bag Sew Along will start on Wednesday September 7, so be sure to join in for that.
Now, for a quick history on how National Sewing Month came into existence. It was proposed by the American Home Sewing & Craft Association, an industry and trade association that supports the sewing and craft industries, back in September 1982. Ronald Reagan was president and he signed a proclamation declaring September as National Sewing Month “in recognition of the importance of home sewing to our nation”.
