Here we are again, September is National Sewing Month, and we’re ready to salute the art of sewing all month long! Want to join in on the fun? Here are a few ways to ignite your creativity for a September full of new sewing projects.
1. GIVE A HANDMADE GIFT
You don’t need a special occasion to make something meaningful for someone you love. Whether it’s a simple zippered bag or a customized totebag, a personalized gift means the most when it comes from you.
2. PLAN A CHARITY SEWING PROJECT
Share your sewing with those in need this month. Need a few ideas? Consider local charitable organizations who need sewing help, join a community centre sew-along project for goodwill, or gather your sewing friends to help out a local non-profit.
3. LEARN SOMETHING NEW – for FREE!
Check out one of the many free mini-classes from Craftsy’s crafting community while surfing the Web or let it run in the background while cooking or doing chores. Or, loan out a variety of great sewing books from your local library which you can read on the go or when you have a quiet moment to relax!
4. TREAT YOUR EQUIPMENT WELL
Make your sewing supplies last longer and work better with a good deep clean! Find out how to clean your iron, sewing machine, and while you’re at it, your whole sewing room. By the time you’re done, you’ll be sewing more efficiently and productively.
5. DISCOVER YOUR NEXT PROJECT
The best way to celebrate National Sewing Month is to simply sew! Get started on a new project with patterns (some free) from the world’s best independent designers on the World Wide Web and right here on BAG’N-TELLE in our tutorial section.
