I am ready for summer having cleaned my porches of the pollen and checking out new recipes for summer grilling. I feel so fortunate to live in a climate where we can truly enjoy four seasons. Tricky as each may be at times, it is wonderful to have four weather patterns and a change of wardrobes as well. Speaking of wardrobes, we are sharing some ideas this month for summer sewing, be it for weddings, outdoor parties or the beach! Read on for some great ideas and inspiration.
In case any of you are not aware of the new Hoffman publication “Classic Sewing” (how could you not!) I am running some clips from the latest issue found in their ‘Swatch Book’ section. I think there is something here for every type of summer project you could possibly need.
Mollie is continuing her series of “Design Board” now with the new inspiration of knowing that she is expecting her first grandchild. She is so…so…. excited as are we and we are all renewing our interest in baby sewing. And speaking of babies….We constantly are generating new interest in sewing, with new moms and grand- moms being introduced to this wonderful world of creativity and fun every day. Knowing there are many of you who are just starting on that wonderful journey, I am including an article introducing you to – and solving some of the mysteries – of smocking.
And just to again dispel any rumors….Bearissima and Bearissima II are alive and well stocked here at Bear Threads. The best of the best, and ‘Crème de la Crème’ could never be dropped or forgotten…..”My, My….What WOULD we do?”
Finally, do not despair our column ‘AND NOW YOU KNOW’ will return next month with some very enlightening and helpful information.
So read on and enjoy…
