My first sewing machine was a gift from my husband on our first Christmas together. I remember the thrill of opening the box and finding a heavy, metal, portable Kenmore sewing machine, which I still have. Later, he made me a cabinet to hold the machine.
To celebrate national Sewing Month, why not stitch a project or two. There are two weeks left in September, which is enough time to complete a simple project, like the apron I talked about earlier. It’s an easy project you can do with a daughter or son who likes to cook. Decorate it by stitching their name on and letting them paint a picture of food on the fabric using fabric markers. When children have their own aprons cooking with Mom is a lot more fun.
Here are some links to free projects on the National Sewing Month website.
