Did you know it’s National Sewing Month? I have to admit I have limited sewing skills. I’ve always handed over shortening hemlines and mending zippers to other people. Maybe you have better skills or maybe you make your own clothes. Either way learning basic sewing skills is a money saver. You save money doing your own alterations and then you save money when you learn to repair torn clothing or yes, fixing the broken zipper rather than throwing away things and buying new.
