Hot Off the Press—Stitch Magazine

I don’t know about you, but the craft-related magazines I see most often are not a good fit for me. They are either too simple or too difficult or too kitschy or too tacky or too…..whatever. But now, there’s a new magazine called Stitch, put out by Quliting Arts Magazine, that’s just right.

First of all, the articles are great. The cover article profiles 5 great skirts with cool detail that sets them apart and will inspire you to make your own innovations.

Stitch puts a huge emphasis on buying handmade, in that the magazine includes several lists of handmade sewing-related gifts, cool indie pattern companies, and profiles of great sewing sites.

This issue also has an article about sewing with sustainable fabrics and a bunch of gifts to make that you would actually like receive, like these:

I’m not sure when this special issue will come out again, if at all, but we could sure use more Stitch!

This magazine looks so cool I want to get it, and I don't even sew. Thanks for letting us know about it :)
