We are thrilled and pretty dang proud to be featured in the Handmade for the Home Kitchen column of the Summer 2016 issue of Where Women Cook! Yes, you read that correctly: Cook. Not necessarily what you’re used to seeing here at the site, right?! But this beautiful magazine is a sister publication from our dear friend, Jo Packham, whom we met when we were one of the studios lucky enough to be profiled a few years back in Where Women Create. Jo reached out to us for this new column, and we were happy to jump at the opportunity. It’s her brainstorm (and a dandy one at that) to expose “foodies,” who love all the DIY aspects of creative meal preparation, to how much fun it can be to extend their creativity to sewing for the kitchen and the table. Maybe we can be “sewies”!
Our first column with Where Women Cook features one of our existing projects: Soft & Stuffable Fabric Shopping Bags, which are made from two layers of quilting cotton. Perfect when you’re out and about to pick up fresh ingredients for a special dinner.
Paired with this project is a yummy Spicy Asian Salad recipe… in case you were at a loss of what to shop for to load into your new fabric bags!
We are delighted to be featured in this issue, and even more excited to have been asked back for their Fall issue. Be watching for the custom WWC apron pattern we designed that will be available to order online at just $1.29 as a full PDF pattern download.
We hope you’ll consider picking up the summer issue of Where Women Cook, and if you do, please let them know you were happy to see your favorite sewing site as a contributor. We are big fans of the WWC community for how they support of creativity in every corner. You'll also be hard-pressed to find another publication that has as much gorgeous inspiration on every page.
The issue was just released June 1st, so check your favorite newsstand for a copy. If you need help finding a store, visit Where Women Cook for a store locator or to order directly.
