National Sewing Month

2011 National Sewing Month

Sew for the Love of It!

I don’t know about you but I ❤ sewing and I’m SEW stoked about National Sewing Month. Silver Spring Sewing Sisters will be working on weekly events and activities for the month of September. One of them being the National Contest. Some members of Silver Spring Sewing Sisters will be participating in the National Sewing Contest. Pics will come later next month. I encourage everyone to enter this contest.
