A Note from the Editor: Here’s What You Need to Know About Our Latest Happenings

Kathy McMakin, Editor of Classic Sewing magazine

Dear Sewing Friends,

Joy Welsh has designed the perfect summer outfit for boys and girls! Sporting a sailor bear on the bib and must-have pockets for collecting treasures, these Summer Fun Bib Shorts are fun to create and just as cute as can be.

Traveling is a part of our summer fun, and I always stop at fabric stores along the way. In our Summer 2022 issue, Phyllis wrote an article about a special place you may want to visit as you travel: Promenade Fine Fabrics in New Orleans. It is a wonderland of exquisite fabrics from all over the world. And the ribbons and buttons will make you swoon!

What projects are you sewing this summer? Join the conversation on our Classic Sewing Facebook group and let us know. We would love to see and/or hear about the wonderful things you are working on.

Have a good week and sew, sew, sew!

Kathy McMakin
