Many of you have been writing to ask me when you can get your copy of Stitch Summer 2012, and I am so excited to let you know that this sunny issue is now available! Now that we are all starting to get a taste of warmer weather, the 34 projects in this issue are right on time.
Stitch Summer 2012 now on sale!
The theme of this issue is–what else–the outdoors, and you will love all the colorful sections, from Fabulous Florals to Fresh Linens to Garden Glories to Beach Party.
The 34 projects range from creations like the simple yet adorable Button Bling Rings by Carolyn Friedlander to the big and comfy Lazy Days Hammock by Carol Zentgraf to the refreshing linen Tiny Patchwork Shower Curtain by Rachel Hauser and clever Convertible Beach Towel-Bag by Ali Winston. You'll find bags, pillows, skirts, and accessories, all inspired by a bumper crop of sunshine. I personally am having a hard time choosing which one to do first!
Beyond the projects, I am also thrilled with the feature articles in this issue, including a profile on Hawaiian bombshell dress designer Alfred Shaheen by Contributing Editor Gretchen Hirsch, a great article by Stitch Technical Editor Mary Walter on smocking that gives this old art a fresh spin, and a sewing summer fabrics story by Linda Griepentrog that is a real keeper.
I would love to hear what your favorite project is in Stitch Summer 2012! Let me know here on the Sew Daily blog.
