National Sewing Month

The month of September is recognized as National Sewing Month.

Proclamation #4976 was signed on September 21, 1982 by President Ronald Reagan. It declared September as National Sewing Month at the request of the American Home Sewing & Craft Association, a trade association affiliated with the sewing industry.

For those who are handy with needle and thread, it's a great time to get to work on their sewing projects. They will find that sewing, binding, embroidering, knitting, crocheting, and designing clothes, especially pants, dresses, and other wearable items are creative ways to spend time.

Sewing and knitting by hand, or with a sewing machine, has long been a way of life for many people. There are many people, young and old, who are clothing designers, seamstresses, knitters, and quilters. They make their own clothes, quilts, blankets, hats, and other items that are made from cloth and fabrics.

Sewing is much more than just a hobby. Sewers and knitters make dresses, pants, socks, scarves, sweaters, rulers, pin cushions, blankets, quilts, totes and other items for themselves and their families. It is a great way to save, make a little extra money, or to give that one of a kind gift.

Watching a sewing project come to life and seeing it through to the end is a rewarding experience. It is relaxing, enjoyable, and a way to make conversation with old acquaintances and a golden opportunity to meet new friends.

Many people turn rooms in their homes into sewing parlors where many hours are spent learning sewing techniques by reading sewing manuals and books, watching how to sew shows on television, and finding sewing sites on the internet.

National Sewing Month celebrates the fact that, although most clothing, knitted ware, and other products that are made of cloth are massed produced in factories and sold in stores, there is still a large segment of the population who love knitting and sewing from the comfort of their own homes.

Billions of dollars are spent on sewing materials such as cloth, needles and thread, sewing machines, irons, thimbles, dye, knitting needles, tables, work kits, threaders, loopers, aprons, pins, patterns, buttons, bobbins, scissors, beads, and other items associated with sewing.

During National Sewing Month, many companies get involved in promoting different aspects of the sewing business. They promote sewing, knitting, quilting, and clothing design. It's a good time for fashion designers, department stores, small business, and shopping outlets to promote their fall and winter collections.

Many young adults have developed a keen interest in the art of sewing, knitting, and quilting and National Sewing Month highlights this diverse art form.

People take classes to learn sewing techniques and how to use the tools of the trade such as fabrics, machines, needles, and other tools. They learn styles, techniques, and designs. They also study the business aspects of sewing and knitting to learn how they can make their creative juices make money for them in the sewing room.
