  1. Elise James says:

    My husband liked to watch the wood shop show. One day he turned the tv on early and Sew It All was on. I have been hooked to the show ever since. I really enjoy getting up on Saturday, just to watch the show and get some great sewing ideas.

  2. stephanie savona says:

    I found the show ont tv – and my love for all things related from there.

  3. Kimberly N says:

    I found it randomly at my local newsstand,and then found the wonderful online community! It’s been a wonderful group of people!

  4. MelodyJ says:

    My mom got Sew News when I was a kid.


  5. Linda says:

    I took a local class at the high school, (some I don’t know how long ago,) and the teacher recommended it.(When the Sew News was big like a newspaper. )I have kept all of my copies. Love it, and wouldn’t give it up. I have taped my sewing shows on IPTV for years. Love the Sew It All tv shows!

  6. Evelyn says:

    I first saw Sew News magazine about 30 years ago at a fabric store. I found Sew It All magazine at Hancock Fabrics. When I found out that there was going to be a TV show, I called my local PBS station and requested they air it — and they had it on shortly thereafter.

  7. MarciaW says:

    I learned of your site through a comment in an email that came through my inbox from Jen Eskridge on your episode #311. So, I’m visiting and saw the giveaway.

  8. Kelli Marshall says:

    I was at the library looking at magazines & saw Sew News. I checked it out & was immediately hooked! I wished my pbs had Sew it All.

  9. Marie says:

    Well, I was looking for information on good fabrics to use to make microwavable heat packs. Somehow I stumbled upon a link to Sew News and while the page wasn’t available, I started poking around and really really like what I’ve seen! I’m new – as in, I bought a 30$ tiny sewing machine off Amazon and am having an absolute blast just sewing together everything I can find, and making a cute, but obviously homemade blanket/quilt for me incoming cousin in May. Sew News has definitely been added to my bookmarks!

  10. karen iozzia says:

    Found sew news in a store years ago and subscribed. Still have every issue. Try to watch any sewing show i can find for ideas and inspiration. There isnt enough on tv. Too far n few. Wish we had a station dedicated to just sewing.

  11. Chuck says:

    My Wife. I listened to her bug the local PBS program person til he gave in and put the show on the air.

  12. BJMarley says:

    I’ve been a Sew News subscriber for a while.

  13. Eileen says:

    I have been a Sew News subscriber for years – way back when the magazine was in the large format. How many remember that?? Read about Sew It All in the magazine and knew that if it was associated with Sew News, it had to be good – and it is. Thanks for all you do, and for my many years of enjoyment in the sewing experience through your pages of lessons, tips and “socializing” with others who love sewing as much as I do.

  14. Janet says:

    I found Sew News in a fabric store (many, many years ago). I picked up Sew it All the same way. Our PBS station doesn’t carry it, so I have never been able to watch the show. I’m a sewing/quilting magazine junkie. I read both of these from cover to cover.

  15. I was watching a sewing show that I always watch left the tv on, left the room, when I returned Sew it all tv was on, I”ve watched it eversince. Love it!
