This has been an exciting year for me, I am excited to announce I have been published again. This makes three times this year in Threads Magazine and one time in Notions, a magazine for ASG, American Sewing Guild, members only. I am truly blessed!
I am so proud to announce that the gorgeous prom dress I made for my granddaughter is featured in the Reader’s Closet of Threads Magazine issue # 178, May 2015.
How exciting it is to see something you made in print. Check it out in Thread’s Magazine.
