issue of Stitch should be
showing up in stores as I write this. While you are waiting to get
the latest issue, we have some free projects and resources to get you
sewing right away.
Check out two new free projects from
the latest issue, the Improv Scarf from
Alissa Haight Carlton and the Feel Good Love
Pillow from Malka Dubrawsky. These are great projects to learn
or practice improvisational piecing skills. The scarf is great for
beginners and the pillow will keep experienced sewers entertained.
In terms of sewing resources, we have
an expanded version of our popular Sewing
Basics section available for free download. Now you can have
this quick reference guide always at your fingertips. And in
conjunction with the fabulous article in the latest issue on sewing
with knits by Deepika Prakash from patternreview.com,
we have posted several great technique videos by designer Patty Young
from Modkid patterns on hemming
techniques for knits. You will be sewing up that jersey in no time!
And for news, our latest unveiling is
the launch of the Sew Daily online pattern
store. So now you can download individual patterns from back
issues of Stitch by your favorite designers. We have patterns
from the Fall 2008 and Spring 2009 issues available now, and we will
be adding new patterns every two months, so look for projects from
the Fall 2009 issue in March. Let us know what you think about the
online pattern store, so we can incorporate your ideas as it grows.
Your feedback is always appreciated!
