September marks National Sewing Month, a day declared by official Presidential proclamation, to be set aside in observance of the sewists of our great nation.   

Sewists literally and figuratively built the fabric of this nation.  To this day, as in days of old, quilts are made to comfort loved ones, apparel is created to clothe family, houses become homes with decorative projects.  And every day, little ones sit down with thread and needle for the very first time to delight in the wonder of creating something with their very own tiny hands.    

Please celebrate yourself this month, for you are a sewist, a quilter, an artist.  You are not only expressing yourself creatively, you are carrying on a tradition that is rooted far beyond the birth of our nation.   

So from all of us at The Fabric Garden, Happy National Sewing Month to you!   

Sew on, sew well, sew often. 

To help celebrate, we are having a National Sewing Month Celebration this Saturday September 20.    Details are below.

All the best,

Below  is the original text from the proclamation signed in 1982 by President Ronald Reagan:

Proclamation 4976 - National Sewing Month
September 24, 1982
By the President of the United States of America

A Proclamation

Tens of millions of Americans sew at home. Their efforts demonstrate the industry, the skill and the self-reliance which are so characteristic of this Nation.


In recognition of the importance of home sewing to our economy the Congress has, by Senate Joint Resolution 205, designated September, 1982, as National Sewing Month.


Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim September, 1982, as National Sewing Month. I call upon the people of the United States to observe this month with appropriate ceremonies and activities.


In Witness Whereof I have hereunto set my hand this 24th day of Sept. in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and eightytwo, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and seventh.
