celebrate national sewing month!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…and I’m not talking about back-to-school! September is National Sewing Month, and I’ve done a tiny bit of rooting around the interwebs for you, my lovelies, to bring you some support and inspiration.

First, check out NSM home base, where they will be posting fun and easy projects all month to help you get into the spirit of things. They are also hosting a pretty swell contest, where the prizes are piles of cash to help you bolster your fabric stash (woot!)

Why make it a one time thing? You can easily celebrate National Sewing Month every single day in September:

And finally, a very short list of sew-alongs that you might like to jump into. Sadly, I couldn’t find any that had to do with making stuff for the men in your life. If you know of one, please post in the comments!

I am seriously contemplating trying to fit in the Lady Grey coat into my already packed sewing schedule! After all, a good coat is a staple for any fall wardrobe.

Naturally, you can also come sew with me in person. I’ll be helping out as a sewing coach this Saturday (September 11) at DC Threads Sewing Lounge, and I’ve also started to offer personalized, one-on-one sewing clinics starting this month.

Happy sewing, friends! As always, don’t be shy about sharing pictures of what you make. 🙂

Great idea your one-on-one sewing clinic. Now there is no reason a klutz like me shouldn't get busy with the projecs I've been too scared to execute.

Reno1976 – say the word when you're ready to jump in! 🙂
