Crafting, for many, is a great way to relax and de-stress. It’s very easy to lose yourself in sewing, whether by tuning out the world thanks to the steady hum of the sewing machine or to the repetitive stitching process of hand-sewing. What many sewists don’t realize is that by de-stressing while crafting, they can also be fighting women’s heart disease!

Sew Red: Sewing & Quilting for Women’s Heart Health, by Laura Zander, is a compilation of rosy-red sewing patterns designed by Zander and a group of craft celebrities. Laura Zander’s campaign, Stitch Red, is aimed at making women more aware of heart disease and ways they can lower their risk. Along with thoroughly explaining each of 30 beautiful patterns step-by-step, each project’s designer shares encouragement and tips for women on how to take control of their heart health.

There are tips from each of the sewing designers accompanying full-color photographs of each project. Sew, among others, a Paneled Maxi Skirt (pg 42), a Paper Hearts quilt (pg 68), a Mobius Cowl Wrap (pg 104), or a Petal Dress (pg 119) and read personal tips for ways to live healthier. Beyond the short bits of advice with every project, there is a section in the back of Sew Red that offers MORE support and guidance on how to strive to be healthier and happier. You’ll learn the risks and signs of a heart attack, reasons why exercise is so beneficial, and various healthy and delicious heart-healthy recipes. There are also pattern templates included in the very back of the book to help you with your projects.

To further sweeten the deal on this exceptional pattern collection, a portion of the proceeds are donated to the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health (FNIH) in support of the Heart Truth. Sew your way to a more heart-healthy you!
