National Sewing Month - Let's Celebrate! September 01 2016 11 Comments

National Sewing Month

It's time to celebrate!

Did you know that National Sewing Month was first observed in 1992 when Ronald Reagan declared September as National Sewing Month "in recognition of the importance of home sewing to our Nation"?

September is a great time to start new projects, finish old pieces, learn new techniques, and share your love of sewing with family and friends.  But we all know that we can enjoy sewing's creative, therapeutic and calming effects all throughout the year!

At Red Thread Studio, we are also celebrating our Featured Designers.  To kick things off, we've rounded up posts from the blog's archives that highlight these talented ladies.  Click through the links below to learn about each Designer and to locate the special coupon code for 25% off their respective collections at Red Thread Studio (through September 30th or while supplies last; excludes Block of the Month programs).

We're also giving away an adorable embroidery kit by Sara Milligan of iHeartStitchArt - scroll down to the bottom for more details!
