The observance of National Sewing Month began in 1982 with a proclamation from President Ronald Reagan declaring September as National Sewing Month “In recognition of the importance of home sewing to our Nation.”Sewing is a new hobby of mine that I've only picked up in the past couple of years, but it's quickly risen to near the top of the list (about the only store I love more than a fabric store is a book store!). I have more fabric and projects that any reasonable person needs in my house...but it's just so much fun! For some reason, out of the blue, during the winter of 2007/2008 I decided to buy myself a sewing machine and sign up for weekend classes at the local store. It was wonderful. I was quickly hooked and loved the thrill of completing a project. I'm still fairly basic, but I'm slowly expanding into a few more novice projects (hopefully to be showcased here soon) and am even trying my hand at quilting.
There are a TON of sewing and fabric-related blogs out there if you're interested. Check out my blog roll for just a few of my favorites. Happy Sewing!
