Quilt Stitch Knit

SUMMER!

I am just going to consider June 1st the beginning of summer. I know I deserve it and the Pacific Northwest seems to be cooperating so my decision is made. I am currently taking pictures of previous school projects and trying to decide on mid-day sunlight vs. “magic hour” light during dawn and dusk. My favorite that I’ve photographed so far was one that did not need ironing, makes it a fav for sure: The Kid’s “Platypus” Hoodie that I made for construction class last year. DSC02799   On to some Sewn Square One summer news…Shows! We will be participating in 2 summer shows, Urban Craft Uprising and Quilt! Knit! Stitch! (a brand new show put on by the people behind the International Quilt Market trade shows). We have participated in 3 International Quilt Market shows in the past (including last year’s Spring show in Portland). The Spring show was great so perhaps that’s why they are trying out another show there this year! Whatever the reason we jumped on it right away. But the first show coming up is Urban Craft Uprising in Seattle. I’m very curious as to how Sewn will fit in because I haven’t seen a sewing pattern company there before. This is a major reason that we have decided that we will be making garment kits for this show. I think that at a craft show it’s good to have something that you can just take home and have all the materials necessary to complete your project. Now for the info!
