September Sew for 30 - 2016!

September is National Sewing Month in the United States.  We all lead very busy lives and finding time to do the hobby we love can be difficult so 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!  A seam here, a press there and before you know it - you have a brand new little something!

The goal of September Sew for 30 is to MAKE TIME to do what you love and by gosh, by golly, let's have a little fun doing it this year!  As sewer's, we are naturally creative people and being creative with our time counts too.  Let's showcase what and how we are squeezing in that hobby time!

How will you spend your 30 minutes a day?  Here are some ideas:


You get the idea - have fun with it!  Here's a recent pic of me on a shopping spree at Mill End Fabrics in Reno, Nevada.

I'm in! - Sew now what do I do?

Blogs - Yes - if you have a blog, by all means, please post your sewing adventures there.  Blog posts are a great way to get involved.  Leave a comment with your blog address below so others can follow you.

Pinterest - This year, I'm encouraging everyone to have fun with the theme and post your sewing adventures to the new Pinterest group board! Sewing selfies are encouraged! To sign-up to post to the board, please send me an e-mail at starsthreads (at) gmail (dot) com.  You will receive an invitation from Pinterest with further instructions.  Please allow 1 - 2 days for the participation e-mail to come thru.  Be sure to include the hashtag #septsewfor302016 on your posts too.

Instagram and Twitter - Post your adventures and be sure to use the #septsewfor302016 hashtag.

Grab the Sew for 30 button - 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, add a widget/gadget to your blog and your in business!

Go ahead, make the commitment!  You know you want to!  I'm looking forward to seeing your sewing adventures!

Happy sewing everyone!
