Hoorah, I’m a winner! Well, not exactly a winner, but I got something lovely for free which is the same difference. My prize was a back issue of the long since sold out issue two of Cloth Magazine which one of the staff offered to subscribers on Facebook. The lucky recipient was me! As if things couldn’t get any better, the issue I received was a special vintage issue (yes!)
I subscribed to Cloth Magazine after reading about it on the Saints and Pinners Blog and became an instant fan. I really like the whole tone of the magazine - it has some unusual and very stylish projects (both clothes and crafty items), all of which seem to be relatively straight forward to make.
The magazine’s got a bit more of a fashion emphasis than other sewing mags too and often features ingenious ways of refashioning old frumpy clothes into new ones. The only downer is that it’s only published quarterly so you have to be patient between sewing fixes.
