On Newsstands Now!

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! 

If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, you may have seen this and know how excited I am. My print publication debut can be seen in the Aug/Sept 2018 issue of Sew News magazine! In it, I give instructions on how to paint fabric with flour resist. I demonstrate the technique and used the fabric to make an Urbanista Hobo Bag (blue stripe with silver pleather bag) and a self-drafted bag with leather straps (grey and tan strap). 

I did not know what to expect with this publication process when it began. After the contract details were worked out, I was required to write the article and submit the finished pieces to the magazine. I was unaware of the the creative decisions that would be made or how the project would be presented. I am so delighted with the end result.  When you pick up your copy, let me know what you think. 

This will be one of many articles I will write for the magazine. If you don't have a subscription, be sure sign-up so you don't miss any of the great writing and featured patterns. 

Happy Sewing,
