National Sewing Month was declared on September 21, 1982. The Proclamation stated that “Tens of millions of Americans sew at home. Their efforts demonstrate the industry, the skill and the self-reliance which are so characteristic of this Nation.” We think this sentiment is still true today for those of us who are passionate about making garments, quilts, crafts, and more for our friends and family. In celebration of National Sewing Month this September, we’re inviting you to join us for weekly fun sewing themed challenges, complete with your chance to win great prizes along the way!
Follow along with us at WeAllSew as we will announce a new sewing themed challenge for you each Monday morning. Participate in the challenge each week by uploading your personal entry to our Community section “National Sewing Month Challenge 2018” for a chance to win one of our weekly prizes! Fans who enter all four weekly challenges are automatically entered for a chance to win the grand prize, a new BERNINA 215 Simply Red!
