The New Issue of Sew News Magazine and Your Chance To Win a Copy!

Happy Sunday Everyone!
I usually do a recipe post on Sunday, but I thought that rather than wait, I would get the ball rolling on the new August/September issue of Sew News Magazine. I do have a sew along post included in the magazine, but it won't begin until September, so again, I wanted you to be able to begin to enjoy the magazine now. There are a number of great articles and a fun, free pattern too, so let's take a look...


There's a great article on fitting the aging figure from Joi Mahon. 


We all want our garments to be beautifully finished. This article covers seam finishes as well as hemming. 


So many of you enjoyed the Magic Bias dress from Fashion In Harmony. With this article you'll continue to expand your knowledge of working with bias cut garments. You can find the pattern for the Bias Cowl Top HERE  


Through September 30, 2016, this fabulous Messenger Bag pattern is FREE!!! What a great back to school gift this would make. You can download the free pattern HERE.


And finally, the featured sew along that I will be doing, a fabulous bag from Swoon Patterns. If you've never heard of Swoon Patterns, you are in for a treat. So many great bag patterns.  This is the Stella Weekender Bag. The picture doesn't really do the bag justice. I'll do another post soon and go over the details of the bag and give you a better idea of the size. It has a little of the old fashioned train case feel, kinda sorta. 


Now for the best part...
I have 3 magazines to give away!!!
If you would like a chance to win, just leave a message on this post. I'll announce the winners on Friday, July 29, 2016.


I've given you just a sampling of the articles that are in the magazine, so I know that whoever wins is going to be in for some great summer reading :)

Good Luck!!!
Rhonda

  55. Oh hi there Rhonda,

    There is a huge reason why I would simply adore to win a copy of this issue. It really is about time I adjusted my brain to my changing shape and admitted it and learned to accept and address the fitting issues. This article in the magazine would be of fantastic value to me.

    Thank you for offering us all the chance to win a copy, thanks also for providing the links to the free patterns. I rather like the little bias top.

    Good luck everyone.

    1. Hi Marysia. Just wanted to note that the draped lace top is not a free pattern. The price is minimal, and it's a PDF, so no shipping!
