Pat Sloan About the Sew Along This Year
The West has a special place in our hearts. We may live there, have friends and family there, or we visit the west. So many of us have an immense love for Western things. No matter where you live or what country you are in, the history and Vibe of the American West has been available to us with incredible movies, enthralling books, TV shows, brilliant paintings, magazines, country music, and celebrities who embody that feeling of the West.
Let’s kick off our Out West! sew along by exploring the Western movies on ‘the big screen.’ A movie puts us ‘all-in’ with story, sound tracks, outfits, and scenery. You have all your senses touched when you watch a movie, and on a big screen it is the very best!
As a kid I remember spending many a Saturday afternoon at the matinee watching movies and some of my favorites were the Westerns.
