According to July's issue of Sewing World Magazine I'm 'Sew Stitched On!' - which surely makes it official, no?!? Please excuse my excitement, but this is the first time my little blog has appeared in print! Do you recognise any of my makes featured? I think I've done quite well getting a mixture of independent, vintage and self-drafted patterns in there.
I don't know about you, but I don't tend to regularly buy or subscribe to sewing (or any for that matter) magazines, as I'm much more of an online kind of gal. I usually wait for reviews from Ooobop and paunnet to determine whether an issue of Burda is worth buying and I'll usually invest in a magazine if I know it features any of my favourite bloggers (recently it was Cloth).
However, it did feel good having a hard copy of Sewing World in my hands and I was impressed with the Features and Techniques sections. In particular, I really enjoyed reading the interview with By Hand London's Charlotte and I found the pieces on sewing with chiffon and troubleshooting overlockers very useful.
But, can most of this information be found online for free? Or am I missing out by relying primarily on online sources? Are you a regular sewing magazine reader and if so, what titles would you recommend?
