Stitch Magazine

on Nov 5, 2008 in Sewing | 19 comments

Stitch is a brand new sewing magazine from Quilting Arts & Interweave Press. My copy arrived on Saturday and I devoured every bit of it. Product reviews, sewing tips, and an unbelievable round up of sewing projects. Simple skirts, lots of gift ideas, Lisa Congdon‘s signature Log Cabin pillow, and a quilt by one of my favorite bloggers Malka Dubrawsky.

The magazine even includes full-sized pattern pieces for some of the projects. The photography is top notch, absolutely beautiful.

The byline for the magazine is ‘Creating with Fabric & Thread’. I feel like they designed the content just for me. I like to sew lots of different things with a little patchwork thrown in for good measure. The layout is fresh and the content inspiring. While one could argue all sewing ideas are now available somewhere in the blogosphere there’s no substitue for sitting down in a comfy chair with a cup of hot tea and good magazine.

I do hope Stitch becomes an ongoing publication. I’m trying to find out what the plans are moving forward. This issue is labeled ‘Special Issue’.

You can order a copy on the Quilting Arts website (I got a 10% discount because I’m a Quilting Arts subscriber). Two patterns from the magazine and one web special project are available for free download.
