The Fall 2010 issue of Stitch is officially on the newsstand! If you haven’t seen it yet, ask about it at your fabric store or wherever you buy Interweave magazines (or order it here). On page 12 of the issue, you’ll find a terrific guide to sewing with silk, written by designer, sewing educator, and writer Katrina Walker. Katrina is a couture sewing expert (that’s her in the photo below) who loves silk in all its forms, and she’ll help you sew any kind of silk with confidence and great results. Katrina’s gorgeous Hearts Aglow Silk Curtain, shown at right and on page 62 in the magazine, is a pieced silk window covering that will add glamor to your holiday decor; you can make it in any colors, of course, but Katrina’s burgundy, gold, and platinum color scheme is nothing short of stunning.
