We sew a lot all year long, but it is nice to have this month set aside especially for those who love to sew. This year turn a friend on to sewing and show them why sewing is so awesome!

We’re also excited because you can enter into our giveaway specially for BurdaStyle readers and fans. Enter to win a BurdaStyle pattern bundle and help us celebrate sewing all month long!

Winners will be drawn weekly on September 8, 15, 22 and 29. Be sure to check back here for a final list of winners.


We also have some other special launches in honor of National Sewing Month!

We have jammed packed it with some of or top pattern collections from past September issues and also included a video download from Meg’s Sketch to Pattern online course with the corresponding patterns so you can learn some new drafting skills.

    yay sewing month! great pattern bundle, and like the retro dress pattern. i myself use packing style tissue paper (like what you get at shops that lines the box), but the type that doesn’t tear too easily.

    Any great ideas on how to trace a pattern from a “bundle” that comes with the magazine? They are all printed on the same page and I have been frustrated in figuring how to sort it all out. also what paper is recommended for tracing?

      You can find tracing paper next to the fusible, sold by the yard. It is transparent enough for tracing and sturdy to hold up to folding as well as for pinning them down again and again. I store them together with the instruction in a protective sheet cover. I do that all the time in order to not ruin the original pattern.
