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,

Kathy Blackmon inspires creativity with her use of trim on this precious playsuit from our new issue. While the basic pattern is lovely, it’s the finishing touches that make this playsuit fun to create. Add cute knee socks and a warm sweater, and this outfit will transition beautifully to cooler weather!

The new 2021 Doll Club with Connie Palmer has arrived! This year, you have two membership options: Pay $39 for the downloadable patterns and instructions like in previous years, or pay an extra $20 to receive access to Connie’s construction video tutorials as well. I know you are going to love sewing this precious new wardrobe of 18″ doll clothes that Connie has so expertly designed for you.

We also just released a new installment in the 2021 Embroidery Club! There are two new embroidery collections included: an adorable set of beach appliqué designs from Kathy Drew and the versatile Hoffman Serif Alphabet. I can’t wait to see all the creative ways you use these designs in your sewing projects!

Have a good week and sew, sew, sew!

Kathy McMakin
