I have some very exciting news to share! I had this blog post all ready to publish, then got the news that I could now, finally, make this public. Scroll to the bottom of this post if you want to see it right away…
Last week, I had to look up an old Sew Beautiful article to check some yardages. Issue 101, from summer 2005. I looked through it, and was amazed at how many things I had in it! I was sewing and designing full-time, and then some, for Martha Pullen Co. at the time. Here is some of what I was doing a little over ten years ago.
and the article to go with it.
These two cute little pique sundresses modeled after an antique garment.
Installment number four in my beginning heirloom baby quilt series
Two versions of the same pattern in the Designer Details section
And, finally, “Sue Says,” my regular column for eight years.
All together, 21 pages plus the cover! This issue may have had a few more of my things than most, but, really, not much. I usually had multiple articles and garments in almost every issue for many years. I was sewing for Martha’s Sewing Room, and class samples, and my own and Annie’s clothes, as well. Oh, and I had also started working on show quilts by this time!
Now, another chapter! I can finally announce that I will have a new Craftsy class available very soon, “Heirloom Sewing Essential Techniques!”
I had so much fun filming this class!
It’s a new way to reach a new audience with this lovely genre of sewing.
There’s exciting news for you, too! Do you want to win this class for free? Click on this link and sign up for the drawing for the giveaway! Craftsy will contact me with the lucky person, and I’ll contact the winner just before the class goes live. Good luck!
