Spring is almost here and we couldn’t be more excited to share our first batch of 2022 warm weather projects with you! The Primrose Shirred Dress Pattern is straight out of a romantic fantasy, and its comfortable and stylish design is perfect for dressing up or down this spring. If you’re already looking ahead to Easter, you won’t want to miss the Hop to It Embroidered Table Runner featured on our cover. This project uses both machine and hand stitching and features gorgeous embroidery details and fun applique patterns. Plus, if you’ve already been bitten by the travel bug, don’t miss the super handy travel pillow that transforms into a small carry-on bag for your necessities!

If you’ve been on the hunt for pretty quilt patterns that are bursting with color, we’ve got you covered. In this issue, you’ll find something to satisfy modern and classic quilters, with a modernized rail fence baby quilt design, as well as a classic Irish chain pattern. These quilt projects are the perfect antidote to gloomy winter weather.

Finally, in this issue, tackle the topic of sustainability with us as we share two travel-friendly totes from Don Morin. These farmers market totes are a great solution to plastic bags and can be folded up and rolled away for easy storage. And if some of your favorite garments are looking a little worse for wear, don’t toss them out! Sophie Tarrant is sharing her favorite tips and tricks for mending clothing, so that you can fight fast fashion by giving your clothes a quick facelift.

Happy Sewing,
