National Sewing Month 2020

All year the editors of AllFreeSewing look forward to the biggest event for us: National Sewing Month!

For our sixth year, it was back to basics. Check out our new and exclusive guides, tutorials, projects, and more we shared September 2020.

Plus, lots of giveaways including a brand new sewing machine worth over $3,000 for our grand prize! The giveaways are now closed but you can learn more about this amazing machine below. Plus, we gave out even more awesome prizes that are worth over $1,000.

Each weekday (and occasionally a weekend) during the month, we released a new page we think you'll love. You don't even need to be a sewist already, because we have several beginner-friendly tutorials, projects, along with a few pieces of no-sew content.

Get the latest free sewing patterns and tutorials by signing up for our Sewing It Up newsletter!
