We are bursting at the seams to share with you something we’ve been working on for quite some time now… and it’s finally out in the world. Meet Sew&Tell; the first edition of our digital magazine about sewing with style, sustainability and substance!
Sewing is part of Peppermint’s DNA – our stories and content have had tales of stitching woven through them since the beginning. We’ve loved seeing our wildly popular, free sewing patterns winging their way to many of your homes and sewing stashes these past 13 years, and now we’re positively thrilled to bring you this gorgeous sewing magazine to help inspire your makes in a mindful way.
Sew&Tell brings together our most popular sewing stories and DIYs from the pages of Peppermint along with a plethora of new stories and inspo to boost your sewjo.
Filled to the absolute brim with snazzy sewing stories, insightful interviews and delightful DIYs, we’re super proud of our debut bumper issue! Catch up on some of the most beloved sewing stories from the pages of Peppermint’s past; peruse new interviews with some of your favourite sewists and design crushes – including Katie Kortman, Common Stitch, Alex Sundstrom of Chubby Struggles and more; discover which are the six essential books you need on your sewing shelf; we share the best bits and bobbins from the sewing stratosphere; cover artist Miyuki Sakai showcases her unique still-life art in stitches; and First Nations artist Holly Sanders shares the process of transforming her art from paintings into poplins.
Plus you’ll find not one, not two, but SIX different DIY projects to help you while away many crafternoons!
