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,

Purple fabric is a wonderful choice for fall! For her Valerie dress in our autumn issue, designer Cheryl R. Davidson selected a lovely purple floral print. Its rich undertones and dramatic florals are accented with geometric smocking and delicate hand embroidery to add just the right touch.

We have launched a new start-anytime online class with Alicia Welcher: Table Linens with Removable Inserts. This class will walk you through creating a table runner and placemats featuring interchangeable inserts that you can easily swap out for various seasons and celebrations.

I hope you are all enjoying sewing Connie Palmer’s wonderful new 2022 Doll Club collection! Today, we are spotlighting the Prissy dress, which is a beautiful party dress for your 18″ doll. It features heirloom techniques galore, including a fancy band, a ruffled hem, and more.

Have a good week and sew, sew, sew!
