There is a lot of excitement in Babyville this month. Not only are we introducing all of our new products but September is also National Sewing Month! It all began in 1982 when President Ronald Reagan signed a proclamation in recognition of all the creative people who live in our wonderful country. That number continues to grow and sewing is not only one of the most lucrative hobbies today, but it has been the cornerstone for many work-at-home moms and other cottage industries.  

The evolution of sewing is more evident than ever before - from the long-standing professional teachers who have been the backbone of the industry, to the more recent new generation of sewists that embrace sewing with their own individual style. There are more independent pattern companies and unbelievably talented fabric designers than ever before! And, thanks to Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and all the creative bloggers, the sharing of information has pumped more excitement into sewing and that inspires us all!

There are several blogs on the current state of sewing to check out. Take a look at this excellent blog from our friend Heather, "Sewing Trend: The Rise of Sewing",  and another interesting blog from Mark Lipinski on “The Slow Stitching Movement.”    

One thing that is most apparent, sewing for babies, pets, family and friends is as popular as ever and it has never been more fun and creative!  At Babyville, we realize how sewing expresses the love you feel for the people in your life as well as the comfort and pride you feel for your home. That’s why we are also launching our Yep, that’s MY baby!™ focus this month. We recognize you create for all the “babies” in your family and Babyville is proud to support this with products, education and inspiration.  During this National Sewing Month, we will continue to bring you project ideas and new product information. Our objective is to grow just as your family grows and always be a part of your sewing and crafting world.

Connect with us and let us know who (or what!) your baby is and what amazing projects you are creating using all the new Babyville Boutique fabrics and accessories!
