Hip hip hooray!!

Look what arrived in my letterbox today!!

Sew Hip Magazine No 1.

I was so excited I had to have some of this while I read it.

Celebrate

Because aside from it being a completely refreshing and lovely crafty magazine filled to the brim with wonderful projects and profiles of fabulous people, it has this...........

Our Pattern Review

How cool is that!!

I have to say that when Manda emailed me to ask if she could review one of our patterns I nearly fell off my chair having been a big fan of hers from way back. Who would not want to be involved in such a great new publication! And she wants more! So look out for some exclusive Audrey and Maude projects coming up in future issues.

And buy the magazine - it really is fantastic.

I've enjoyed leafing through mine no end (but a glass of bubbly would have made it even better - must remember that one). I've subscribed, so glad I have more of your goodies to look forward to.

Well done! And if it wasn't for the deplorable state of our dollar, I'd get one now. Methinks I'll wait a bit until it improves.

Kitschen Pink said...

Mum bought me one back from UK as well - really good mag - love the extensive pattern reviews - not just gush gush, but well thought out! All the (non-crafty) mums I was sitting with, while reading the mag, ooh-ed and aah-ed over Poppy!
