Isn’t it crazy how time flies? It seems like yesterday we were celebrating the New Year and in a blink of an eye, it’s already September. Here at the AGF HQ were quite fond of this month because it’s dedicated to the craft of sewing! For those of you who don’t know, September is National Sewing Month here in the US.
In 1982, President Ronald Regan declared September as the official month for sewing to recognize the importance of the craft in people’s homes. We must admit, your families are super lucky to have you in their lives. It’s not often that you find someone that is creative who can make a beautiful quilt, mend and sew garments, and most importantly make handmade gifts! To celebrate our favorite hobby, passion, and the fact that sewing makes us feel more alive, we have prepared a few activities for you!
Here’s what’s coming your way:
- The Milla Bag Sew Along | Starting September 6th
Do you remember our recent post 5 Bag Patterns for Back to School? Due to popular request and an awesome response from all of you, we’re excited to teach you how to make one of the bags that were featured in the post! You’ll be able to download our free pattern to the Milla Bag and Mister Domestic will teach you step-by-step how to construct the bag on his blog. How cool is that?
But the fun with the fabric master doesn’t end there…
- Mister Domestic’s Mystery Sew Along | Starting September 19th
Yes, you read right…a mystery sew along! Mister Domestic is going to teach you how to make a special project he has been working on! Stay tuned to see what it will be. ;)
Wait there’s more…

Karly from Paisley Roots will be hosting a Back-to-School Blog Tour featuring Heartland fabrics by Pat Bravo (starting September 12th) and Sari from Sariditty Handmade will be hosting the second edition of The Denim Studio Blog Tour (starting September 26th).
