Threading the Needle Day

Sewers, guide your thread through the eye of your needle and get ready to sew…It’s Threading the Needle Day!

July 25 is not just a day of celebration for sewers and sewing. Threading the Needle Day also celebrates the metaphorical meaning of the term “thread the needle,” or to walk a fine line between two issues or to find yourself in that awkward place between two friends in an argument. Hopefully you don’t find yourself there today, but if you do, navigate yourself out of the middle and, if you make it out without a scratch, celebrate with some sewing.

Did you know that “thread the needle” is also the name of a yoga pose? Thread the Needle is great for stretching the shoulders, arms, upper back, and neck. Try it out!

Count Your Buttons Day – October 21

VintagesewingbuttonsOctober 21 is Count Your Buttons Day!

Too much time on your hands? Count your buttons!

Many people acquire jar fulls of buttons over the years – you know, from all those buttons that have fallen off your clothes, the extra buttons that come with new clothes, the buttons you find on the ground while out and about, or the buttons you buy for fun, for crafts or for whatever reason. If you have a collection of buttons stashed away in your closet or drawers, dump them out and count ‘em!

Don’t have a button collection? Head to the closet and count all the buttons on all your clothes…well, only if you’re really really really bored.
