Have you ever thought about how much of sewing consists of stitching in a straight line? It’s true and Brett Bara has put together a book of 26 projects that can be created by simply sewing straight line.
Sewing in a Straight Line is a collection of 26 projects for home decor, gifts, quilts, clothing and accessories that can all be made by simply sewing straight lines. Brett says, “My inspiration for this book came after many years of people telling me they’d love to learn to sew but they just didn’t know where to start. One day it hit me that so much of what I sew is super easy to make — in fact, much of it is sewn with straight lines only. And anyone can sew a straight line! So I set out to make a book that would show readers that they can make cute projects even with very simple skills.”
We liked her ideas so much, Coats & Clark sponsored three videos that give you a preview of projects from the book.
Brett will be doing a blog tour with a give-away at each stop of her book and a great assortment of our Dual Duty XP Thread. Find out more on her website, Manhattan Craft Room. You can also find where to purchase the book and a sneak-peek at other projects.
