It's the second of our two back-to-back Christmas issues and as the marathon gift-sewing season starts in earnest you'll find me taking stock of my stash. Sewing for others is a great way to dive back in to long-forgotten prints, and consider colour and print combinations that you'd never put together for yourself.

This issue is filled with projects that will help to work off some of your stash, and we hope they'll have you feeling empowered and encouraged to bust out your long saved fabric – whether you're sewing for yourself or to gift. We can’t wait to see what you make. Join…
