Stitch Spring 2013

Spring is a time of tremendous activity and growth. But it's also a time to regenerate, and that's why this issue's theme is all about relaxing and refreshing.

We've included projects, fabrics, and techniques that will bring positive energy to ourselves, our wardrobes, our friends, and our homes through sewing. What better time than spring to dream up styles and projects that you can create by yourself or with others, for yourself and others?
