Best of National Sewing Month 2018

Thanks for another great National Sewing Month! These are our favorites from the month.

Updated September 28, 2018
Best of National Sewing Month 2018

Since we shared over 30 pages for National Sewing Month in 2018, we thought we'd make a page that includes our absolute favorites. Every page this year was full of information, free projects, or video tutorials, so there was something for everyone. We even had a few no-sew projects for the people who want to celebrate #NationalSewingMonth but aren't ready to pick up a needle and thread just yet.

We thought we'd narrow it down by choosing our top 13 designer-created pages created exclusively for this year's celebration. This year we had four main themes: tips and tricks, Christmas, refashioning, and printables. Each day of the themed week, we'd share at least one new page. It could be a collection of free sewing patterns, a guide on a certain technique or material, a new project or free pattern, or tips for sewing. We are so grateful to have such an amazing community of sewists who are willing to step in to help.

Even though the celebration is over until next year, that doesn't mean you can't catch up! This page is the AllFreeSewing editors' choices for the Best of National Sewing Month 2018 and we think you'll agree that these are not to be missed. No matter what you are looking to create, you will find a page that has something interesting and intriguing. So, take a look and see what sparks your creativity best.
