Getting Ready for Sewing Machine Day - Sep 10

so put together this Treasury collection on Etsy

A Woman can Never have...... too many Sewing Machines. (link will be active Sep 9 -Sep 10, 2009)

SEwing machine Day Treasury

Had you ever heard of Sewing Machine Day? New to me. Found it in news about Etsy's merchandising plan. Was inspired to do a little celebrating. The goal was to celebrate the person behind the machine as well. Unfortunately, the though came to close to Sewing Machine Day to get enough people mobilized to take photos of them with their machines.

So far only Deb of looksSEWnice was able to come up with a photo. Doesn't she look great surrounded by all the sewing machine items? Next year hopefully, she will do another photo and I'll put out a call for photos early enough to get some more faces in the second annual Glorious Hats curated "Sewing Machine Day" treasury collection.

As we move toward that occasion, the plan is to do a series of articles on "Etsians who Drive Sewing Machines." It will commence tomorrow with Deb as the first to be featured.
