National Sewing Month Sites

To help celebrate National Sewing Month, I thought you might like the web addresses of some really interesting, helpful websites.  Here are a few of those that I found.  I hope to add more in a day or two.  There are quite a few more that do look interesting.

Sewing.org has free projects, tutorials to help beginners, and a newsletter.

Fave Crafts Blog  is hosting a special blog series throughout the month that includes projects, videos and tutorials, and guest blogs from designers.

Sew News Magazine also has a website for those who purchase their magazine.  It's one of my favorite magazines and the web extras are great.

National Sewing Month.org is holding a contest (deadline is Sept. 30) in which the sewn article must have a visible heart.  This link goes directly to the contest page.

All Free Sewing.com has a multitude of free project and patterns. 

I know, there are only a few listed here, but believe me it will take you days to get through all of it.  I have a difficult time getting off the computer once I start browsing.  I love looking through the tutorials and projects and often print articles to read later.  I like to put the articles in a file in my work bag.  When I have to be quiet during workshops and meetings, I sometimes pull out the file.   It's much easier to be quiet if I calm the boredom with an interesting article. 

Don't forget about my giveaway!  The rules and information can be found just by clicking here.
Good luck and happy quilting,
Mary

Wow! Thanks for sharing this. I tend to lose track of time browsing blogs! Love it with morning coffee.
