It's National Sewing Month

Did you know this? Me either. It was created in 1982 by Ronald Reagan to recognize the importance of home sewing in our country. Sweet! Funny I didn't hear about this till just a few days ago. I can't remember where I saw it or how I was tipped off about it, but it is indeed true. It is National Sewing Month, and I plan on celebrating it!
A treasury I created firstly about memories of sewing with my Mom, but then decided it was about this month as well.
Part of the plan is to start creating table runners again. They were really popular. (see the detail of one above)

And over at Loft Full of Goodies you'll find this awesome needle book. I bought one recently, but it's blue, and I cannot sing its praises enough. If you hand sew, get one of these lovely little felt books to keep your needles in. I adore mine!

Check out the National Sewing Month website. They are holding a sewing contest through the end of September with three large baskets full of sewing supplies and notions as the prizes.

  1. I didn't know about this. Hmmm....good for you sewers! :-) I hand sew...but only when I have to! I know how to sew...or rather I 'did', but I don't like it. I'd much rather crochet. I do think that little needle holder is cute though. I have crochet sewing needles in a plastic box. Gotta check this one out. Thanks!
