Issue 106 November 2019



November is upon us now, and it feels like autumn has really arrived – the hour has gone back, the
evenings are dark and the mornings chilly – but that’s a good excuse to cosy up indoors with a mug of
cocoa and some seasonal stitching (in my opinion at least!). This November is very exciting for us here
at Bustle & Sew HQ as we’ve finally – it’s been a long, drawn-out process – moved into our new home –
aptly named Station House as we’re less than 100 yards from a heritage steam railway station. Daisy
and Rufus are enjoying the freedom of their new, rather large, garden and looking forward to discovering lots of new walks in the countryside around us. I hope you’ll find lots to enjoy from nature notes, to poetry, recipes, gardening and of course lots of lovely Bustle & Sew projects too including the last of our giveaways – this month we’ve included our “Deck the Halls” pattern collection – as Christmas is, of course, only just around the corner now.

The Bustle & Sew Magazine is the work of just the two of us – Helen Dickson, the founder of and creative force behind the Bustle & Sew bunny and her daughter Rosie who’s a bit of a whiz in the kitchen! So if you’re expecting a glossy high-street, high-budget publication, stuffed with adverts and promotions, then this probably isn’t the magazine for you. But if you’re looking for quirky, unusual and fun sewing projects, all with Helen’s unique style, and enjoy filling your home with beautiful ideas, then you’re sure to love the Bustle & Sew Magazine.

Don’t forget, you are free to sell items you personally have made from Bustle & Sew patterns. All the templates are included at full size, so there’s no awkward re-sizing – no fiddling around with photocopiers or hanging around at printing shops – you can start creating straight away! I don’t mind if you personally want to make items to sell from my patterns, but you are not licensed to go into mass production.
