September is National Sewing Month, as originally proclaimed by president Ronald Regan in September 1982. It was in conjunction with the American Home Sewing and Craft Assoc. and said, in part, "in recognition of the importance of home sewing in our nation." It also said, "Tens of millions of American sew at home. Their efforts demonstrate the industry, the skill and the self-reliance which are so characteristic of this Nation."

If you are interested in the history of National Sewing month you can visit NationalSewingMonth.org. They have some free projects, a contest and the history of the month. I will be writing about sewing in this blog all month. In the meantime, enjoy the awesome sewing patterns for today's Friday Finds!
