If heirloom is your passion, wait until you see this issue of Sew Beautiful magazine. Breathtaking designs from some of your favorite sewing friends, including Kathy Dykstra, Kari Mecca, Cheryl Davidson and Debbie Glenn, give you so many reasons to love lace. Learn to scallop and miter a triple-row fancy band the easy way, cleverly fuse gathered lace for sewing using (“why didn’t I think of that”) fusible thread, manipulate lace motifs for a fairytale effect on special occasion finery. Plus, you’ll meet a new friend, Dorothy Sill, (but call her Miss Dot; everyone does) whose traditional hand-embroidered and smocked baby dresses are the picture of heirloom sewing perfection.
