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 just love a wrap that I can grab when I am walking out the door on a cool day! This lovely Jane Marzewski creation is perfect for me. I know you will love making several to match outfits in your closet. You can find the project in our Holiday 2019 issue.

Can you believe winter is finally here, and Valentine’s Day is next? Oh, my—it’s time for me to start embroidering cute shirts for my granddaughter. She just loves her “Kaki-made” garments that are one-of-a-kind! We have so many cute embroidery designs in our Valentine’s Collection that it will be hard to make a selection.

Jane Marzewski's fabulous wrap!

I hope during the days of winter that you will retreat to your sewing area and spend wonderful days making beautiful things. It’s so rewarding to see a garment progress to the finished stage. I feel so gratified that I can take fabric, patterns, threads, and embellishments and sew something wonderful. It’s the process and the journey of learning new techniques that make sewing fun.

Wrap up, stay warm, and sew!
