National Sewing Month? I didn't and I'm a major Craftster -- alas, just not much of a sewer. I have tried it - just not terribly good at it. Every Craftster has a bug-a-boo or bane of existence. Sewing is mine. My sister once said that "between the two of us we must have tried every craft possible through our lives." I'm not so sure that's exactly true since there are some pretty odd possibilities out there but she was right in that we made a very large dent in the field. Anyway, she is the one that ended up with the sewing gene and produces some beautiful quilts - of which I often get to be the lucky recipient (so I don't mind not being much of a sewer if you know what I mean!)
Back to National Sewing Month. I was surprised when I researched "National (anything) Month" to find out that there are months dedicated to pretty much everything under the sun. Where have I been? I laughed when I discovered that this was in fact National Sewing Month because just last week a colleague of mine (and fellow blogger, Julie) came to me for advice on sewing. She was thinking of trying a new skill - sewing. She knows that I craft but she didn't know that I lack the sewing gene. I wanted to help her though - what Craftster doesn't want to lure (I mean, guide) someone else into the web of a craft?
