National Sewing Month 2009 Contest

National Sewing Month 2009 ContestIt’s time to start thinking about your entry for the 2009 National Sewing Month Contest! This year’s theme is one that we creative quilters & sewers can easily relate to, “Reuse, Remake, Restyle“.

Co-sponsored by the American Sewing Guild and the Sewing & Craft Alliance, the contest encourages sewing enthusiasts to “innovate while they recreate”, in the areas of home decor, fashion, quilts & accessories. Three lucky winners will receive prize packages of equipment, tools, notions, fabric and more, including a selection of Marcus Fabrics. Contest ends September 30, 2009.
