Stitch is a special issue sewing magazine all about creating with fabric and thread. Yes, it’s sewing but oh so much more.

Whether you’re just learning to sew or have been sewing forever, Stitch will inspire you to make beautiful things that showcase your unique point of view. Our focus is on contemporary sewing that celebrates the handmade lifestyle.

Original Sewing Projects

If you have a project to share, Stitch would love to see it! We are looking for contemporary and innovative sewing projects, from wearables for men, women, and children to home décor and gifts that fit our project themes each issue. We want design-driven projects for stitchers of all skill levels. All projects submitted to us must be original, unpublished work.

Note: Designers of all accepted clothing projects must include a full-size, nested sewing pattern with graded sizes.
