Every Day We’re Hustling
Things are really bustling in the Sew News editorial offices. If you’re a long-time subscriber of Sew News you’ll have noticed that over the years we’ve gone up and down in page count. It’s just part of the business of running a magazine. It’s been a few years since our magazine has moved much past 70 pages, so I’m beyond thrilled to announce that our next issue of Sew News (April/May) will have 16 more pages of content!
That means more articles from your favorite sewing talent, more beautiful photos, more tips and techniques. This will be the standard page count for the rest of the year. What can you look forward to the Apr/May issue? Let’s have a look!
- Eight garment projects!
- Master Class featuring Linda Reynolds who walks you through Set-In Sleeves
- Plus size sewing column featuring Jenny Rushmore of Cashmerette & The Curvy Collective
- Mimi G!
- Brand new Pattern Play featuring Meg Healy of BurdaStyle
- Beautiful home decor and fashion columns
- Get Sewcial a new back page highlighting inspiration found online
- Learn about favorite talent in Meet the Maker
- Two sew alongs in each and every issue!
We will continue to have our Basics Skills column, which is perfect for beginners or those coming back to sewing and Joi Mahon joins us again dispensing her top advice for all your fitting woes. You’ll also find all your favorites like Staff Picks, Hide & Seek, Reader Tips and Off The Shelf.
Needless to say we are super busy. But, I would love to hear from you. What past columns and articles did you enjoy seeing from years past? If you’re new to Sew News what would you like to see? Are you looking forward to the next issue? Leave me a comment on the Sew News blog!

There’s still time to join the Clare Coat Sew Along! Bop on over to the Sew News blog and you’ll find the first two installments of the sew along. This coat is a great start to coat and outer wear sewing. It’s not only easier to sew than most coats, it is easier to fit.
The Clare Coat is from Closet Case Files patterns, a indie pattern company owned and operated by Heather Lou. The Clare Coat is a fan favorite for its easy style and modern silhouette. Sew yourself a great coat this year with Sew News and Closet Case Patterns!
Ah, the wrap dress. One of the seasons must-have wardrobe staples. What, you don’t have one? You say you haven’t found the right pattern for your curvy self? No more worries! Jenny Rushmore founder of Cashmerette and The Curvy Sewing Collective has the pattern for you.
The classic wrap dress is designed to play up your curves with a crossover front, a built-in waist tie, and a not-to-deep V-neck. Designed by and for curvy and plus size women, the design’s innovative neckband construction prevents gaps. Bonus: Join our sew along in February for more tips and tricks. All on the Sew News blog starting February 7th!
