Its been a while hasn’t it? Lots going on behind the scenes here at Sew Hip – lets do a brief recap and then we can get back into the business of proper blogging, yes?

– We have a new editor, the lovely Anna Hodgson from Eternal Maker. Anna is working for us as commissioning editor 2 days a week and is doing a brilliant job. You may have seen her introduction in Sew Hip issue 6 (also known as the one with the chicken!) and we have more patterns and input from her coming up in the next few issues.

– Sew Hip has gone digital! You can now subscribe to or buy single issues of the magazine and download them to your PC / Mac here. Its a fantastic way to try the magazine out or to keep reading us if you are concerned about your carbon footprint. International subscribers will see a huge difference in price by reading us this way.

– Sew Hip issue 7 is in production at the moment, we have a gorgeous Heather Ross dress pattern and interview for you as well as some sewing projects for the men in your life. I can’t wait to see the pages come back from the art department.

    Hi, wonderful news but too bad The Digital Newsagent doesn’t accept Paypal as payment option because I am very interested to buy a download version of your wonderful magazine! Perhaps you can contact them about Paypal as payment option?

    I have downloaded the magazine from Delivery and I love that service. However, I am having difficulty printing off the patterns in the correct size. Any suggestions?

    Hi Just dropped by to say the pocket skirt worked out fine! I am sending a photo to the ed. Can’t wait for issue 7!

    I have the same question as Emily. The patterns print out TINY. I can’t get the magazines in the states and I really want to make the Popover Dress. I understand that maybe they can’t print out true to size, but if you know how much to multiply them by….Thanks!!
