Let’s be honest a lot of time crafting magazines end up looking more like catalogs. The articles can be cute and amusing but from time to time, but as a sewist or seamstress what you really want is the pattern! With Stitch Magazine, you get all of the above. This amazing magazine is absolutely stunning, fun to flip through, and insanely practical. With each issue of Stitch Magazine, you receive a whole slew of patterns. You will find one for every occasion! Plus, each issue is themed, bringing you a brand new set of sewing patterns every season. This particular review will focus on the Modern Holidays 2014, an issue full of homemade gifts to give.

The best thing about this issue (and all other issues) of Stitch Magazine is that it provides all the necessary tools to create the forty-plus included within its pages. In addition to instructions and fold-out patterns, Stitch provides every reader with the necessary vocabulary and instructions on how to read a pattern. This feature makes it accessible to   sewists of all levels of experience. If you are experience, you can skip straight to the back and if you are brand new to the hobby, you can use this issue as a learning tool. This magazine is not just a collection of patterns, but a fantastic resource, as well. Oftentimes, magazines are very disposable, but this one has staying-power.

Now onto the patterns! This amazing collection really does have the “47 mod gifts to make and give” that it boasts on the front cover. The ideas are endless and you can really find something to make for everyone on your Christmas list. From the “Mini Wallet” by Stephanie Bracelin to the more complicated “Color-Blocked Ski Tote” by Tina Lewis, you will easily fill every spot under your tree with homemade wonders.

If you are a sewist looking to invest in a print magazine, Stitch Magazine is the one for you. This magazine is a fantastic investment. With brand new patterns each and every issue, you will easily bolster your collection as the magazines come in the mail four times a year. Many of the patterns are timeless, meaning that you can keep them around for a long while.
