Issue 116 September 2020



Although we can still hope for some warm golden September sunshine there’s no denying that summer
is drawing to a close. The days are shorter now and dusk falls earlier every day. Still, this is a most
beautiful time of year, and it’s fun to call the Newfies and Rufus and head off for an afternoon’s foraging expedition returning laden with nuts, berries and more besides.

Autumn treasures are the theme of the first pattern in this issue – toadstools, leaves and seeds jostle for space on a dusty purple background and we also have the next three new Christmas designs for this year, including the second part of the Nutcracker Dolls – I do hope you’ll like them.

The Bustle & Sew Magazine is the work of just the two of us – Helen Grimes, 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.
