National Sewing Month Giveaway

7. September 2012 12:02 by tbev | 0 Comments


While you may or may not be celebrating National Chicken Month or National Hug a Texas Chef Month in September, I hope you'll take time to celebrate National Sewing Month. Instituted in 1982 by Ronald Reagan to recognize the importance of home sewing in America, National Sewing Month is celebrating its 30th anniversary! "Sew" cool, right?

It's a great opportunity to take up sewing again, or start up as a beginner and enjoy the creative therapy that sewing can offer. Plus, NationalSewingMonth.org has a wealth of information (like how to choose the best sewing machine) and free patterns to kick start your creativity. I particularly love the idea of this homemade Kindle or iPad cover:

(Written instructions here.)

Here at A Fabulous Fat Quarter and 4my3boyz Fabrics, we want to join in the celebration with a giveaway! We've got one $50 fabric certificate to share with one of our lucky readers. 

To enter the giveaway, answer this question in the comments section: With which sewing-related groups, guilds, or organizations do you belong or associate? We'd love to know what other organizations are out there so that we can reach out to them, offer group discounts, and even highlight them here on the blog. Leave us a link, contact information, or any other information that might be helpful. And if you don't formally belong to any groups, but think we should know about them, let us know those too.

Good luck and happy stitches to you this month!

One commentor will be randomly selected to win the $50 fabric certificate to 4my3boyz Fabrics. One entry per person, please. Giveaway ends Sunday, September 16, 2012 at midnight.
