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,

I love seeing little ones dressed up in their Christmas finest! In our new issue, Nona Pontiff shares Celia’s Holiday Dress, an elegant one-of-a-kind garment made using twin needlework. This beautiful dress is picture-perfect for Christmas cards, holiday portraits, and any special seasonal event that calls for dressy attire.

Registration is open for Alicia Welcher’s next two live online classes. Join her on October 28 to create a festive table runner featuring decorative flatlocking and on December 2 to make a lovely pillow cover featuring corded tucks.

For more great sewing classes, explore our catalog of start-anytime online classes and videos, or register for in-person classes at one of our upcoming live events!

Have a good week and sew, sew, sew!
