Smocking tends to top my list of where my passion in sewing lies. I sort of felt like I didn't get much smocking done in 2015, but when I look back at pictures, I see that I really did do my share of smocking this year!
The highlight of 2015 for me, was being published in the new Classic Sewing Magazine! It sparked a renewed interest in me to keep hand smocking alive and to continue to promote it. I want to help spark interest in those who want to learn the art and be there to guide them in proper technique along the way!
My first article in the new magazine featured two of my favorite things; sewing for babies and smocking! My 2nd article will also feature some vintage-inspired smocking, which turned out to be one of my most favorite projects I've worked on! Look for it in the March 2016 issue! For now, I will leave you with a teaser!In 2016, my goal is to narrow my focus to what makes my business different from the rest...what makes me unique and extraordinary!
Happy New Year, my friends! I hope you will follow me in my journey as I strive to create an epic year at Southern Stitches!
