national sewing month

That's right, September is National Sewing Month. Now I have to say that the "official" website lacks inspiration, but there were a few things that I could glean to share with you all...

Here are a few ways that you can celebrate:

  • "Sew more often. If you haven't been sewing lately, find out what's new in the sewing world at a local fabric or sewing machine store." I have included a list of some of my favorite sewing books and books I want to try on the right. These books have beautiful pictures, really cool projects and a ton of inspiration. Check them out from your local library or buy a copy today. Try a new pattern, learn a new technique.
  • "Create your own sewing circle of friends; it’s fun to sew with others!" Nici and I have talked about doing this, but we can't seem to find the time. Maybe we just need to make time, because sewing with the girls is a great excuse to get together.
In a few days I will try to pass along some of my favorite sewing blogs. Enjoy!
