2012 National Sewing Month Sew for the FUN of It! Contest

What do you consider  a fun sewing project?  Is it a new party outfit, a bed for your dog, or a wild & crazy shower curtain?  This year, NationalSewingMonth.org is sponsoring a contest. No categories, no limitation - sew what YOU consider fun.  Check out all the rules and guidelines here.

The observance of National Sewing Month began in 1982 with a proclamation from President Ronald Reagan declaring September as National Sewing Month "in recognition of the importance of home sewing to our Nation."
