September means it's National Sewing Month! AllFreeSewing has been celebrating this month dedicated to sewing for many years and we keep striving to share more unique tutorials, projects, and resources with you.
If you sew, want to learn, or simply have some fabric taking up space, get excited! This National Sewing Month is your chance to learn new techniques, save new projects, collections, tutorials, videos, and much more.
Our 2022 celebration is our eighth year and we're still as excited as we were for the first year. Every year we try to go bigger and get better with what we're sharing with you. Plus, a few no-sew projects and resources for those who want to participate but have yet to pick up that thread and needle.
That's just the content. We also get even better giveaways every year and this year has so many exciting and lucrative giveaways that you're not going to want to miss.
This page will help guide you through the month. We're adding every page when it goes live. If you keep this hub page bookmarked or at the ready, you'll be in the right place to see everything we've shared for National Sewing Month 2022.
