Stitch Your Way Through a Troubled Economy

Ann Marie Horner, a popular blogger in the crafting world, has a new book, Seams to Me, out, or at least it will be, come next month. Horner talks all about her labor of love on her blog. Her publisher has set up a “Sew Like a Pro” sweepstakes, a fitting way to promote her tome, which is all about selecting the appropriate fabric and colors and even picking out an stitch-worthy sewing machine. Here are some other topics too: Sideways Squares Skirt, Prairie Blouse, Full Contact Cooking Apron, Playing Along Quilt, and Doggie Dreams Bed.
