Sewing World Magazine

If you've been following this blog at all you might be aware of my travel sewing kit making an appearance in Sewing World magazine.

The magazine landed on my doormat this morning (well, technically, it got stuck in my letterbox but let's pretend it landed with a satisfying thud on my doormat because that probably paints a better picture) and will be available to buy in shops from tomorrow.  Yay!

The sewing kit looks quite at home on the front cover...


and made a little appearance on the editor's letter page...


as well as a full-page image introducing the project inside the magazine...



they even managed to turn my little sketches into professional-looking diagrams...



and gave me a little box to write a little bit about me...



Of course this blog got a little mention (hello if you've popped on here after reading Sewing World!) as did the website that keeps me busy and covered in paint most of the day. 

This feature was especially nice for me as it's the first magazine article I've written in about 15 years - and Sewing World was one of the first magazines I ever wrote for.  It feels a little bit like coming home and I like that very much.

I have a few more magazine articles lined up, so watch this space and I'll share them with you.

Aw thanks, ladies. Ali, it's not technically *me* you'll see in the magazine, lol! Which is probably a good thing because I seem to have a lot of bad hair days lately!
