Why I love the new Stitch Magazine

10 01 2011

The newest Stitch magazine arrived this afternoon and it is very exciting.

the front cover

So why do I love it so much?

Is it the article on Top 10 sewing techniques?  No although useful for anyone starting to sew, as an experienced sewer, I don’t need it. 

Is it the 14 applique projects?  No, there are about 10 I would like to make and one I have already drafted the pattern for, again I kind of get this. 

It could be the article on working with knit fibres.  There is a dress I MUST have and a lot of information that I learned from and will reference in the future.  If I were into jewellery, I could get very excited about those five projects and in fact there are same great ideas for gifts.

It is definitely the whole article on piecing including all five of the projects.

But the reason I love Stitch, this edition and everyone I have seen so far, is the fresh, modern, funky feel that it has.  It is making sewing cool and I intend on getting it into the lives of all the creative young women I know.

I so wish I had this 15-20 years ago, I would only have left the house to get fabric.

The magazine is now on the web if you would like to check it out.  Be warned, you might get excited.
