I guess spring is kinda in the air, so let’s take a look at what’s going on in my springtime sewing life, including a fun interview I’m doing, some progress on my next sewing book idea and a new free coverstitch troubleshooting guide I have created.

I’m on That Sewing Blab tonight!

I’m being interviewed on That Sewing Blab tonight, which is hosted by Dawn from Dueling Designs, Myra Lorraine (One Sew Sweet) and Maria from Velosews. This is the third time I’m on the show, and it’s a blast with lots of interactions from the viewers. The show starts at 7.30 PM EST (which is 1.30 AM where I live!).
You can watch the show here.

Cardigan progress update

If you watched my latest sewing plans video, you know that I’m currently working on a cardigan with a bold, geometric, quilted knit fabric. I began sewing it this past weekend, and now only hemming and some final touches remain.
As usual, when I move outside my comfort zone with prints, I’ve been all over the place with my feelings, but now I’m digging how it’s all coming together. This is truly a statement cardigan, and I think it will really lift my mood wearing it.

Download my coverstitch troubleshooting guide

If you are having issues with your coverstitch machine, but don’t have my book Master the Coverstitch Machine (yet!), then you can start by downloading my brand new coverstitch troubleshooting guide. In it, I have illustrated step-by-step tips on how to solve common coverstitch problems.

Figuring out my next book project

This summer I want to start working on sewing book number three. I have pretty much settled on the topic and the content, but I want to get my ducks in a row before I start chatting about it too much.
Anyhow; today I made a little bit of a mental breakthrough when I was brave enough to call up a person who is one of the Swedish pioneers within this field and ask for an interview.
And it looks kinda promising, dare I say, but it does require some travel for me, so hopefully, I can line up another interview on the same topic in that city.
The research process is by far the most energy boosting part of bookmaking, and I love reaching out to people and have them contribute with their knowledge too. I’m very proud of having such amazing people being part of my first two books and I want to continue with that format.
Hope you have a happy sewing spring

      Aww, thank you! This has been such a fun (and easy) project to work on, the fabric really does all the talking!
