September Sew for 30

September is National Sewing Month in the United States.  To build upon that theme, I'd like to encourage everyone to "Sew for 30" minutes everyday during the month of September.



It's amazing what you can get done in little increments of time.  I understand that physically sewing on a machine isn't possible for everyone, everyday.  But, dedicating 30 minutes everyday to your favorite hobby is easily achievable.

Here are some ideas:


The goal here is to spend more of your time doing what you love.  So, if you are up to the challenge, leave a comment below and take the pledge to Sew for 30 during the month of September.  Feel free to grab a Sew for 30 button and add to your blog.  Just copy the code in the box on the upper right of this post and add a widget/gadget to your blog.  This is my first time creating a button so if it doesn't work correctly, please let me know and I will attempt to fix it!

Here's my pledge:

I, Star of Starsthreads.blogspot.com pledge to dedicate 30 minutes of every day for the month of September to some sort of sewing related activity. 

Now it's your turn.....

Happy sewing everyone!

  8. I, Rachel of Always a Project, pledge to sew for 30 minutes each day during the month of September (minus 4 days that I'll be out of town!) and I will **only** use the material that I have on hand, excluding required notions. I will be documenting the month via my blog, always-a-project.com, and Instagram @alwaysaproject. Thanks for presenting the challenge!!

  9. I, Marie, pledge to do sewing reelated activities for 30 minutes each day during the month of September. We are going on vacation for a week, so I can use the driving time to do some organization. We just moved so I have lots of sewing projects bouncing around in my head. This will get me organized and moving.
