National Contract Sewing Month
National Contract Sewing Month celebrates all the soft-goods industrial manufacturers that have dedicated their expertise and skill to make products here, in America

Assembling goods requires years of training and an ability to pay attention to detail. Without such work and talent, it would be nearly impossible to take an idea at conception and convert its production into the detailed and trackable steps needed for its mass production.
Last fiscal year in 2019, the U.S. textile industry supply chain—from textile fibers to apparel and other sewn products—employed 585,240 workers in the U.S. with textile and apparel shipments totaling $75.8 billion.
Millions of workers in the sewing industry cut, stitched and programed away to stock stores with a plethora of affordable soft goods. With products ranging from seat belts and EMT bags, to life-improving orthopedics and medical devices, to military and tactical gear -- one cannot go a day without coming across an item a contract sewing company doesn't make.
July's National Contract Sewing Month pays homage to all seamstresses, machine operators, designers, mechanics, and operators essential to the mass production of soft goods. The month also honors engineers, quality assurance specialists, sourcing managers, and the cut and sew geniuses who make up "the fabric" of the industry.
