New Reading Material

On a recent visit to Joanne’s I picked up some new reading material. One is the Oct/Nov issue of Vogue magazine the other is Couture Sewing Techniques by Claire B Shaffer.


Vogue Magazine has a few projects that I am sure will assist me in my sewing journey for next 12 months. One has to do with using the invisible zipper foot another is inserting a zippered pocket and the third is a very pretty applique lace top.

As for Couture Sewing Techniques I’ve decided to approach this book as I would if I were taking a course . .  One chapter at a time and practicing the various techniques discussed. Tonight it will be various seam finishes.

My to do list is rapidly growing. I think I am truly going to need to start a list!
