The winter/spring 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 . 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!
