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,

White lace is a favorite of mine. In my lifetime, it has gone from dressy to casual! Yes, we still make dressy clothes with lace, but I love the more casual applications as well. This adorable blouse made by Andrea Birkan, featured in the Summer 2020 issue, made me smile. All I could think of was my stash of lace I have been collecting for such a project as this!

The world is keeping its eyes on our healthcare workers, and our new nurse outfit in the Doll Club is a salute to these hard-working people. Connie Palmer created this design as a part of the 2020 Doll Club collection.

If you haven’t yet joined the 2020 Doll Club, now is the perfect time to sign up. The first two patterns are now available, and we also have optional Kit Bundles and Notions Bundles that will begin shipping out mid-month. The bundles are optional, of course, but it’s so nice to have everything you need all in one box!

Please stay safe and sew, sew, sew!
