Your Sewing Center, Waterloo, Iowa.

This annual promotion is held each September and is a month-long event. This promotion gives independent sewing dealers the opportunity to promote their businesses and increase community awareness of their stores. The VDTA•SDTA mails free promotional kits to association member dealers. These kits contain wall and window banners, signs, and hang tags, all with a central theme that changes yearly.

The association encourages its members to make use of these kits to raise community awareness about the quality products and services they offer. Each kit contains posters, banners, and information about the Sewing Month prize giveaways and bonus coupons, intended to get the dealer’s community and customers involved in the Sewing Month activities. There are press releases included in the kit that should be sent to local newspapers to gain the dealer valuable publicity.

If you have any questions regarding Sewing Month or if you would like to become a member to participate in the Sewing Month activities, call 1-800-367-5651.
