Sew It All, Volume 7: Mary + Ellen = Potholder Magic!
Do you know Sew It All?
Sew It All is a show on PBS and a magazine, too. Created and hosted by the lovely, delightful, and talented Ellen March, Sew It All strives to help sewists everywhere a) get better at what they love to do and b) get inspired by great projects. Sew It All does a great job at both of these pursuits and I had the great pleasure to get involved with Sew It All not too long ago. I took Ellen through a cute potholder project: it’s a real neat, fast project that helps teach quilting skills and did I mention it can be made real fast? It can. Here she is!
If you wanna make it, I highly recommend doing so — it was fun to make. And not only are the directions in the magazine, Ellen and I did an episode on the Sew It All show, so if you wanna watch it going together, there’s that, too. Does this sound like a plug? IT TOTALLY IS! Quilty is just one of the neat shows in the family around here that wants to help you be better at sewing and quilting. When a magazine and a show work together (like Quilty, and like Sew It All) it’s a great duo for teaching. You’ve got two resources. Two = better than one. Right? Right.
Here’s what Volume 7 of Sew It All looks like so you can make a beeline for it at the newsstand or at your LQS:
And here’s me and Ellen hangin’ out on the set. I’m telling you, this March lady is pretty cool. Thank you so much for having me on the show, Sew It All. I’d love to come back — and Ellen, when are you going to be on Quilty?? The invitation stands.
