Cutting Edge: organize your sewing space for spring! February 28, 2007

I have an article in the new issue of Cutting Edge, which I’m really excited about…

Spring 07 Cutting Edge

I got to interview three DIY Network hosts — Jennifer Perkins of Craft Lab, Allison Whitlock of Uncommon Threads, and Cathie Filian of Creative Juice — about their favorite ideas for organizing their sewing spaces. They shared plenty of ways to stylishly store your fabric, notions, and patterns, using stuff you probably already have around the house, like Ziploc bags and index cards.

Get Organized!

Thanks to Jennifer, here is a scan of the whole thing if you’d like to read it. I could certainly put some of the tips to good use myself, my sewing area is something of a pile at the moment…

And in a lovely surprise, stylist extraordinaire Kayte Terry included one of my necklaces in the Spring Fling feature, paired with a cute patchwork jumper — thanks so much, Kayte!

Speaking of jewelry, be sure to keep an eye out for Jen’s Naughty Secretary Club pieces all through the issue! A few other things I spotted and loved were Khaliah Ali’s new Simplicity patterns (especially the v-neck top), the lace-embellished party dress ideas, and Nicole Smith’s floral felt jewelry. So cute.
