Did you know that February is National Smocking month? Have you ever wanted to learn to smock? Maybe you know how to smock but you want to perfect your smocking skills.
The Smocking Arts Guild of America (SAGA) is encouraging members to smock together in public this month and to help spark interest in smocking. Some chapters will have special displays in libraries and other locations. My local chapter, Sew Many Things, has created an amazing display at the Williamson County Library.
If you live in the Nashville area, I want to encourage you to attend their Learn to Smock Workshop at the library on February 27th. You will not be disappointed, as there are many talented ladies in this guild who will be eager to teach you smocking skills! They are a great group of ladies and this should be a really fun and informative workshop!
If you are unable to attend, or if you live somewhere else in the world, but still would like to learn how to smock, I have created a free PDF file with some basic smocking stitches to get you started!
