The pattern was added to your Sewing Patterns.
Every year, in anticipation of National Sewing Month in September, we plan and create in order to offer a month chock full of new content: from brand new projects, patterns, tutorials, and resources.
This month celebrating sewing is our favorite time of year. It's a perfect time for those who have never sewn before to start (we even have a few no-sew projects), along with inspiring those who have been sewing for years with things they've never seen.
Our 2020 celebration is definitely one of our favorites because of all the amazing pages we've compiled from our staff and popular sewing designers. You can find all 29 pages listed on our National Sewing Month 2020 hub page. Below, check out our favorite and the most popular pages of the month!
We also gave away a brand-new Handi Quilter Stitch 710 Sewing Machine, which was our biggest grand prize ever! Valued at $3,495, it was quite the catch.
