Celebrate National Sewing Month
Not only is it the annual time of year where all things sewing-related are encouraged, 2013 is the 31st anniversary of this month of sewing indulgence. It's the perfect opportunity to introduce a non-sewer to sewing as a way to harness creative energy and benefit from the hobby's therapeutic effects, not to mention take advantage of them yourself.
Along with free sewing projects and tutorials offered by the ASG and SCA, there's also a sewing contest.
This year's Sew for the Skill of It! contest focuses on projects that serve dual purposes or that can be used in two ways. For example, sew a scarf that does double duty as a table runner, a dress that can transition to a skirt, or a tote bag that can transform into a jacket (and back again) at need.
Winners will be selected randomly. The contest opened for online entries September 1 and entries will be accepted through September 30 at midnight. Visit NationalSewingMonth.org and Facebook.com/sewingmonth for National Sewing Month news and contest information and to enter your project in the contest.
