National Sewing Month 2022


September is National Sewing Month and Brenda from Songbird Designs and I are planning some fun events to take place throughout National Sewing Month.  We will be hosting a blog hop with the theme “Get on board with sewing” as well as a photo challenge on Instagram. 

A blog hop, if you are not familiar, is like a "show and tell" online.  All you need to do is sew something that ties into the theme and then write about it:  Your “something” could have a tropical or surf feel.  It can be clothing, a quilt, a bag, a toy, or whatever you choose! it might include some tropical themed fabric or novelty print… or not. Readers enjoy hearing about the inspiration of a project, how you made it and they always like to see pictures.  

We offer inspiration to each other with projects, tutorials, or patterns. 

You have about two months to sew something and join in on the fun.

The basics: 

Blog hop days:  September 1-7

Post on your assigned day at 12:00 am Eastern time.

Have a giveaway or don't have a giveaway. It's totally optional!  (We are hopeful to have a prize package to give away via Rafflecopter.)

The Instagram photo challenge is a simple daily posting or sharing of various sewing notions related to that day's number.  For example... Day one could be one thimble, or one pair of scissors, or one seam ripper... Day 2 could be two pins/needles, or two pairs of scissors...  Day 13 could be 13 spools of thread. 

Hashtags:  #NationalSewingMonth2022 #NationalSewingMonth2022Day1 (change the day’s date each day, ie. #NationalSewingMonth2022Day2, etc.)
