The series is all about encouraging slow, creative sewing and covers subjects ranging from using recycled fabrics, telling stories with stitch, to learning about composition and colour to making the most of simple stitches. The articles have enabled me to have fun with trapunto, mola, pojagi and boro style sewing but I'm saving my current favourite technique of needle lace for last.
I was flattered to be asked to contribute as I genuinely rate the magazine highly. There are the usual crafty makes and practical tips of course, but what really sets Sewing World apart from other magazines is that it is so far-reaching. It looks at sewing and textiles in general, both from a trend-led point of view and the history of the subject, and every month includes a full-size pattern for a garment – this alone makes it fabulous value for money!
PS: With one article left to submit, the Knit & Stitch show over, and work generally calming down, I should soon be able to get back to my own slow stitching and blogging about it too.
