The Fall/Winter 2014 issue of MIY Magazine is here!

So many great ideas to explore. So much fun to have. And it’s almost winter, so it’s time to hunker down and get some crafty time. Cuppa coffee anyone? Head over to the Make It Yourself Magazine Facebook page and check it out.

And while I like many craft and quilt magazines, this particular issue holds a special place in my heart because Sheila Sinclair Snyder of License to Quilt and I teamed up and created several of the upcycled sweater projects for this issue.

Last Fall we did a shopping trip to gather old sweaters. It was a hoot and a half! If you haven’t visited Value Village in Springfield, Oregon….then put it on your must-do list. Then we were off to the races designing and laughing and creating.

So over the next few days, I’ll feature a couple of the projects we submitted. So as part of your winter cleaning, you can clear out your closets of those old sweaters you aren’t using any more and turn them into fabulous things!

From the Publisher: Make It Yourself, is typically most widely available at grocery stores and in discount stores such as Walmart. They also sell magazines in Barnes & Noble and some other bookstores, but usually you would see them most often in grocery stores—either at the checkout or where all of the magazines are together in the newsstand. The digital issue is available here.

Happy quilting….and crafting!
