HUDSON, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, the leading fabric and craft specialty retailer in America, has an exciting September planned for sewing enthusiasts. For this year’s National Sewing Month celebration, Jo-Ann is reminding customers that “Sewing is Sharing.”
Sewing is considered an act of sharing on a variety of levels. One generation shares its knowledge of sewing with the next generation, while friends share their passion for sewing with each other. Sewing is a sharing of time and techniques, plus it allows individuals to share their personal talent and creative spirit.
“People have always taught one another how to sew,” said Courtney Talkington, education manager for Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores. “For decades, sewing has been a social activity and it continues to be very social today. People of all ages are taking sewing classes at Jo-Ann. They meet new friends, share ideas, learn new skills and have fun.”
Throughout September, customers who sign up for Sewing 101 at participating Jo-Ann stores will receive free class supplies. This special offer is exclusively for this introductory sewing class and is valid only while supplies last.
Jo-Ann is encouraging all sewers, from experienced to beginner, to stop by a local Jo-Ann store or visit online at Joann.com to celebrate National Sewing Month and share their love of sewing. Whether the underlying passion is for quilting, apparel, home decor or craft sewing, Jo-Ann has the fabrics, supplies and inspiration for sewers to complete their next project.
Now is the time to think about sewing a handmade Halloween costume, a new outfit for fall, or home decor accents to update living spaces. As the seasons change and the weather turns cooler, it’s the perfect time of year to start a quilt. Once it’s finished, consider entering it in the Jo-Ann Quilt Your Colors quilt contest. The grand prize winner will receive $5,000 plus other prizes.
