We're in Threads magazine!

Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of working with Sarah McFarland, of Threads magazine, on an article about our sewing studio makeover.  Last summer, we transformed our shipping area into a classroom for local community education sewing classes. 

Sarah wanted to share that transformation with the Threads readers, and when she found out that I had my own sewing space which was an entirely separate room, she thought the readers would want to see that too!   Today, I just received my issue in the mail with the complete article, and I couldn't be happier with it.
This is a fantastic issue with lots of wonderful articles, and I'm so honored to be included in it.  The complete interview is online here:  From Drab to Decorated.  For the "before" pictures, you can see my original blog post here. 

Run, don't walk, to get this great issue!  Then, go to page 75 to see my smiling mug, and my artificially clean sewing room!  I'll have you know that after the photo shoot was over, I went on a big sewing spree, and completely made a mess of it once again.  It was lots of fun to be a part of the process and see the hard work that goes into an article like this.  Thanks,Sarah!

Happy Sewing!
