Issue 92 September 2018



Autumn is upon us – famously the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness and in this month’s magazine we embrace this change in mood with pumpkins, foxes, blackberries and a special Rosie’s recipes section that suggests a variety of ways to preserve the autumn bounty of fruit and vegetables to enjoy through the colder months ahead.  We also chat to a very talented maker, find out about hand embroidery threads and stitches as well as how to care for our precious work when it’s finished – and all in addition to the six new Bustle & Sew projects featured on the cover.

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.
