Best of National Sewing Month 2021

See the favorites from our annual National Sewing Month celebration!

Updated July 01, 2022
Best of National Sewing Month 2021

It's been another great September and National Sewing Month celebration! Our 2021 celebration was another fantastic collection of free projects, patterns, guides, tips, videos, and much more.

Although we love to sew year-round, September is our favorite month for celebrating all things sewing. It's the ideal time for those who are just getting started or have never picked up a needle and thread before to start (we even have a few no-sew projects as well), but anyone who has been sewing and is looking for some inspiration or new ideas will love it just as much (if not more).

Because there were so many pages shared in September, this page includes the best of the best. That's right, check out the Best of National Sewing Month 2021 below and see what you might have missed. 

Our 2021 promotion is definitely one of our favorites because of all the marvelous pages we have gathered from our favorite sewing designers and created in-house. You can find all of the pages shared this month on our National Sewing Month 2021 hub page.

We also gave away a brand-new BERNINA B-325 Sewing Machine, which is a popular grand prize for sure! Valued at $1,299, it was much sought-after.
