September is National Sewing Month September 08 2014, 1 Comment
We here at Periwinkle think there is always something to celebrate! So, we seek out fun holidays and commemorations to share. September is National Sewing Month! It's easy to appreciate sewing, you're quite likely wearing something right now that results from this art. Where would we be with out skillfull sewing?
If you'd like to try your hand at this art rather than just appreciate it's completed works and you live near us here in Glendora, you're in luck! Just across the street from Periwinkle, in the downtown Glendora Village is the Sew-N-Sew. This amazing fabric and quilting store has a broad selection of beautiful fabrics and trims, as well as all the equipment needed for sewing. From the simple needle to a industrial looking sewing machines, it's all available. And they offer classes! Visit them online at http://www.thesewnsew.com to see their very full calendar!
Don't let National Sewing Month pass by uncelebrated -- you simply must take a little time for some cheer!

It's a day to relax, just a little bit! Celebrate that, really, everything can't get done. 364 days a year you scramble and work hard -- today, kick back! Enjoy a little lazy!
It's also Be Late For Something Day, so if you can't easily claim to be celebrating your own momness or honoring a mom by relaxing -- just let everyone know you're celebrating by being late to do do something.
