  1. Hi as a complete beginner in sewing and knitting etc I have found it frustrating that there are not clearer instructions for the various projects. In this instance I refer to the scatter cushion in issue 41. The instructions to make the cushion up are to use an embroidery needle to " work v shaped feather stitches over each seam" I have no idea what a feather stitch is and how to do a v shaped one ..it would be great if the magazine had more tutorials and would teach more . If there is a project and you are asked to do a certain stitch it should explain how to do this.I have bought the magazine and have found the projects lovely but have not been able to finish a lot of them because of lack of clear tutorials. This has stopped me from buying any further issues but I would definatlely buy the magazine if it would teach me to actually do the projects.
