The slogan for National Sewing Month 2009.
We have numerous posts about remaking, recycling, upcycling in threads like "Some Garments to Make" under Sewing
and even in other folders like Yarn Works (how about "Accidentally felt a favorite sweater?" at http://messageboards.ivillage.com/n/mb/message.asp?webtag=iv-hgstitchery&msg=6882.1 and "perfectly Good Sweater Not to Your taste?" at http://messageboards.ivillage.com/n/mb/message.asp?webtag=iv-hgstitchery&msg=7287.1 to mention just two).
And embellishment and repair have also been common themes in other threads - just two are:
"Embellish those jeans" at http://messageboards.ivillage.com/iv-hgstitchery/messages/?msg=7158
"March is mending Month" at http://messageboards.ivillage.com/iv-hgstitchery/?msg=7272.27
But let's start a new thread specially for this month!
Co-CL for "The Stitcher's Niche" and ""Shake Up Your Style" and CL for "Remodel & Renovate"

September is National Sewing Month.
In these economically challenged times, do you think we need a Repair Manifesto?
