If you're a sewer, then you may know that September is National Sewing Month! But do you know why? Well, in 1982, President Ronald Reagan made a proclamation declaring September National Sewing Month “In recognition of the importance of home sewing to our Nation.” And thank goodness he did!
Growing up, my mom handmade many of the clothes my sister and I wore on a regular basis. In addition, she made items for our home too like tablecloths, curtains, pillows, bedding, and doll clothes! Though I outgrew her making my clothes as a teenager, she was delighted when I asked her to make my wedding veil! It was something I always admired about her, she could sew just about anything!
This makes September a great time to indulge your passion for sewing. It's also the perfect opportunity to introduce yourself to the craft if you’ve never tried it before!
