The text was sent to Kathleen and she asked it be shared with all of blog readers. It is about an online sewing magazine called Seamwork, with some free content and some more in-depth subscriber content, that is coming soon. There is also a PDF of a Table of Content “page” at the end to give hints at what is coming in more detail. Enjoy and thanks, Kathleen!
Seamwork is almost here! We’ll be launching it Monday morning as we drink our coffee, and I hope you’ll join us for a little caffeine and sewing geek-out, wherever you are. I’m sure we’ll be talking about it on the blog, facebook, and twitter.
Today, I wanted to share one last peek with you at the table of contents and one of the stories.
This short story on bridal designer Elizabeth Dye offers a peek into her studio and process. You might recognize it from last week’s email, where I shared a screenshot of the web version of the same story.
This one is from the downloadable version of the magazine, which will also be available on Monday. It’s in PDF format, so you can read it on your computer or tablet, with or without an internet connection, and regardless of what sort of device you have.
We often see looks at designers in their studio, but little is said about the technical skills involved in designing clothing, or how those skills influence the creative process. I’m excited to talk to more designers about how they actually design and create – the nerdy stuff – in future issues.
The first page is the table of contents from issue 01, so you can see all the stories we’ve included. It will probably also give you a few hints about what sort of patterns will be available in December when you subscribe. I think you’ll love them (I do).
By the way, we’ll be drawing names for the pattern subscription giveaway on Sunday, before the launch, so all winners will be notified before Monday morning.
See you on Monday!
