Stitch Science in Homespun Magazine

Last fall I received a lovely email from the folks at Australian Homespun Magazine asking permission to publish one of my tutorials (the Sweetheart Stamps over there on the left sidebar).  After some back and forth emailing, the focus shifted and instead they asked if my Scan Me QR code quilt could appear in a piece on "The Scientific Approach" to sewing by Janai Velez. Cool!! Sewing nerds unite!

The feature is in this month's (May 2014) issue of Homespun. I love the sweet thread spool on the cover!

Janai is kindly sending me hardcopies of the magazine, but passed along these images for me to share. The Science feature looks super geeky and excellent. There is a piece on this guy that you must check out, especially if you are an antique Singer fan. I'd never come across the Sewing Machine Orchestra before and I'm rather amazed by it all.

Here's the piece on my quilt (also giving some props to the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild here!).  This quilt will likely be hung soon at Vancouver's Mini Maker-Faire in June.

A great big G'day to my Aussie friends! I just love it that a little picture of something I made is in a Australian magazine. I am so coming to visit one day!

Congrats! Congrats! I follow a famous quilter! Thanks for the links to the sewing machine orchestra. I could even tell what most of the machines were, too. Now to see if I can find that magazine on this side of the pond (USA).
