If you've been asking yourself, "When is National Sewing Month?" Well, we're sorry to say you just missed it. National Sewing Month is in September every year, but do not fret! With this recap, Best of National Sewing Month 2019, we are highlighting our 10 best projects and resources from the month-long celebration this year.

You will find brand new sewing projects, sewing resources, video tutorials, and even a few no-sew projects ideal for beginners or those ready to take the leap into actually sewing anything but want to get their feet wet.

With our lovely guest designers and in-house team, we came up with 24 projects, videos, and helpful guides. You can find all 24 projects listed on our National Sewing Month 2019 hub page. Below, check out our favorite and the most popular pages of the month!

With your help, we also collected 111 pillowcases for the 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge (benefiting A New Direction Beverly Morgan Park)! Thanks to everyone who donated for your support.

We also gave away a brand-new Janome sewing machine (congrats Dianne Y from Michigan)!
