National Contract Sewing Month - July
(Last Updated On: November 9, 2022)


The entire month of July celebrates National Contract Sewing Month. Throughout July, we give recognition to all things manufactured with a needle and thread.

Assembling goods requires intricacy and skill. Unfortunately, most people are unaware of the hard working individuals working seamlessly behind the scenes. As a result, we often take them for granted. However, purchasing goods would be impossible if it weren’t for the hard working people in the industry.

Being a modern contract sewing manufacturer involves a level of sophistication, dedication, and attention to detail. Without this intricate skill, it would be nearly impossible take an idea at conception through mass production to make it become a reality.

This monthly observance gives recognition to all seamstresses, machine operators, designers, mechanics, and operators. In addition, the day also honors engineers, quality assurance specialists, sourcing managers, and the cut and sew geniuses who make up “the fabric” of the industry.

There are millions of workers in the sewing industry across the world currently cutting, stitching, and programming away, bringing you 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, it’s nearly impossible to go a day without coming across an item a contract sewing company doesn’t make.

CustomFab USA founded National Contract Sewing Month as a way to honor those hidden figures who work tirelessly behind the scenes. For those manufacturing the wealth of material goods that are so ubiquitous and necessary to modern day life.

In 2019, the Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed National Contract Sewing Month to be observed in July annually.

Founded in 1990, CustomFab USA began with a single sewing machine and ultrasonic welder. They quickly grew into the contract sewing industry’s go-to white label Made in USA manufacturer for soft goods. There are many reasons for the company’s success. Their innovative use of ERP software, investments in new technology, and a belief in the American Made industry are all contributing factors to their success. After all, it’s the people who work for them that have made them who they are today. Without the expertise and dedication of their skilled workforce, quality products for everyday life would not be possible. Today, with numbers now over 350 strong, CustomFab USA knows the importance of their employees.

In recognition of the amazing individuals who work with CustomFab USA, and others in similar industrial sewing companies, National Contract Sewing Month celebrates the dedication of all those in their craft.
