Welcome to the March 2014 issue of the Bustle & Sew Magazine. This month we’re welcoming spring with our own unique mix of sewing projects, fiction, articles and features too. There’s also some enchanting vintage stitchery mixed in with the usual selection of original Bustle & Sew projects. And if you’re planning to sell your work at craft fairs this spring, or maybe online, there’s part two of Helen’s series “Making Money from Making”. Don’t forget, you are free to sell items you personally have made from Bustle & Sew patterns. All the templates are included at full size, so there’s no awkward re-sizing – no fiddling around with photocopiers or hanging around at printing shops – you can start creating straight away! The Bustle & Sew Magazine is also available as an eMagazine from Helen’s website www.bustleandsew.com. This month’s projects are: English Roses Applique, Florence the Flamingo, Humphrey and Henrietta – two delightful canine makes, Sweet Home picture, Rosie Posie Stitchery and three Easy Eco-Totes to carry your shopping safely home!

Helen doesn’t have any formal textile training, but comes from a long line of very skilled needlewomen, learning from her mother and grandmother from a very young age. She loves to create with fabric and thread – embroidery and applique are her favourite techniques, together with designing patterns for cute softies. Even more than creating herself however, Helen loves to share her designs with others, both experienced stitchers and also hopes to introduce new people to the pleasure and satisfaction of making something for themselves. (In today’s economic climate, together with the ongoing revival of traditional skills, making it yourself is becoming a very popular option). She loves to recycle old fabrics into fresh creations, keeping even the smallest scraps for applique work and hopes this comes through in her designs. Bustle & Sew is an internet-based business – a global concern (even if a very tiny one!) that Helen runs from home – an old farmhouse near the sea in the beautiful South Hams area of Devon. Every month she publishes an e-Magazine for my subscribers, with a selection of my own patterns, as well as articles and features that is sent to readers as far away as the USA, Australia, Brazil and Japan (as well as the UK). Her sewing patterns and the Bustle & Sew Magazine are sold as easily downloadable pdf files aimed at the stitcher with beginner to intermediate skills so are attractive to a wide audience.
