fresh ideas

There’s something pretty great about being a beginner. Nothing quite as satisfying as when something that was once a little mind-boggling suddenly clicks and makes sense. We’ve got projects for all kinds of beginners this issue – whether you’re a total newbie or are taking your first steps learning a new technique – so you can each have your “a-ha!” moment, no matter what shape or form. This issue marks a new beginning for me too, as I take the helm of LP&Q as Commissioning Editor… I’ve got so many ideas that I can’t wait to show you! We’ve also got a new columnist in Kim Smith Soper (see her advice on de-cluttering your sewing space on p34), as well as a few new designers bringing fresh patterns. So let’s…
