September is National Sewing Month! Celebrate By Starting a New Sewing Project!

A proclamation in 1982 from President Ronald Reagan declared September as National Sewing Month “In recognition of the importance of home sewing to our Nation.”
Since then, National Sewing Month has become a great time to indulge your passion for sewing and a great opportunity to introduce yourself to the craft if you’ve never tried it before.

September is National Sewing Month!

September is National Sewing Month!

A great place to start is by visiting your local independent quilt and fabric shop. Each shop across this great nation is fun and unique with individual flair. And shopowners are happy to help make your sewing dreams a reality! Another great place to start is the American Sewing Guild. With chapters and neighborhood groups across the country, members meet monthly to share their skills and ideas, enjoy education sessions and participate in community sewing projects.

Both new and experienced enthusiasts can also enjoy the free sewing projects and Guidelines for sewing, embroidery, craft and appliqué articles available on the Sewing & Craft Alliance (SCA) website.
Below are some free projects on the National Sewing Month website!
