Stitch Summer 2012 Now Available!

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 can't wait to hear what you think of this issue! To get your copy of Stitch Summer 2012, visit the Sew Daily shop

  1. I have to say this was the most disappointing issue of Stitch, in my opinion. I just love Stitch and have every issue and just can’t wait until each new issue comes out, but this one? I guess I’ll keep it, but I certainly won’t be going back to use it for sewing inspiration. The projects were disappointing and seemed out of style. I am a bag maker and was so excited to see that there were 9 patterns in this issue. That was, until I saw them. I apologize for being so blunt, but you have raised the bar so high with your previous issues. I am crossing my fingers and hoping that the Winter issue is back to your high standard.
