A Mother’s Day Gift for newsletter readers

I know that today is Mother’s Day in the United States.  Here in the UK we enjoyed our Mother’s Day back in March – but I’ve decided to celebrate all over again!  And because it’s not really Mother’s Day here, my gift is for all my free newsletter readers – whether you’re a mother or not!  It’s a copy of my Bustle & Sew Magazine….. 

Bustle & Sew Magazine April 2013

 If you’re  a newsletter reader, then just go to your free patterns library page on my website and you’ll be able to download your copy there.  If you’re not already a reader and would like to receive this magazine, then all you need to do is join using the form in the right hand sidebar.  You’ll then receive a link to the free patterns library – as well as more goodies over the coming weeks.  (And don’t worry, I never share your email address with anyone else).

Happy Mother’s Day!

    Thank you so much for this, I love your magazine and newsletters. I am in Mozambique, Africa and we also have Mother’s Day here but as we are still going through troubled times personally no-one in my household really remembered or did anything. My mother in Zimbabwe sent me a lovely text and my son in UK also sent me a lovely message which is good for him as he has to remember which Mothers Day is the one celebrated here. I was feeling kind of sad about not having my son or fiance here at home not doing anything but then I organised a picnic on the beach with some friends and she and her two children had made me a beautiful card and then when I checked my emails and found your gift I realised it was a lovely day just like I wanted it. Thank you.

    Thank you very much, Helen! Missing my mom, Helen, today especially, who passed away 1 1/2 yrs ago, at age 90. Both my children are out of state from where I live in the US and miss them very much as well. I love your story, Sheleen. Thank you for sharing. Thank you for reminding me my problems are small compared to what you are going through. And to count my blessings! I had a lovely buffet brunch today with husband and good friends! Have a blessed Mother’s Day wherever you are and however you celebrate. Much love.

  3. Many thanks for this wonderful gift. I will down load it tonight and read it. I am hoping that my sewing will improve over the summer holidays. I am still stitching along, but not very graceful. Now with you kind thoughts and help – I am well on my way to trying new projects and improve my outcomes. I wish you the best on this day also.

    Hi Helen, I can’t find a link to the free Mothersday magazine. It’s not in the free pattern library. Can you please help me find it?

    Annemie 🙂

    • Hi Annemie – yes it is in the library – you’ll find it about a third of the way down the page. If you still can’t find it then please do drop me an email and I’ll send it to you. xx
