Modern Seamster

Modern Seamster is a new quarterly magazine that “fills the needs for a smarter, fresher, and more innovative sewing magazine” and brings together domestic sewing and fashion design. The first issue is available to download for free as a PDF. I’m enamored. The first issue is filled with familiar things from Seattle, an interview with the Seattle Craft Mafia and story about R.E. Load Baggage, and San Francisco, a tour of Britex Fabrics (including a picture of the only employee who was kind to me there, looking sharp as ever on the ladder). The magazine is well balanced with articles about high design, music culture, an advice column and sewing practice. So far it’s love. via Pink of Perfection.

    Wow! Thanks for the link. This looks fantastic – just what the Dr. ordered, as I’m setting up my studio/sewing room! (ah, only 6 months after I moved in.)

    Great links, as always!

    Thanks for the link. Has anyone sign-up for the first issue? i.e., download for free as a PDF. It’s not apparent on their website how to do so.
