    October magazine Drawstring Bag Problems

    Hi there, Apologies - you're right, the template doesn't seem to be displaying the diagonal lines properly. We're working on getting this fixed straight away. In terms of fabric size, you draw the grid onto fabric and then leave a good border around the edge. This doesn't have to be a specific size. May I ask what email address / phone number you've been using when you tried to contact? We endeavour to answer all the queries we receive, so I'm very sorry if you haven't had a response. Apologies again for the issue with the template. We'll get it working correctly as soon as possible, thank you for bringing it to our attention.

    Newbie re Dachshund

    Hi there! We have recently discovered a small error in the instructions - you can find the correction in the link below. We're very sorry for any inconvenience this has caused and hope you can finish off Dave with four legs! http://www.homecraftforums.com/topic/51107-dachshund-correction-issue-62/

    Dachshund correction (issue 62)

    Hi stitchers! Loads of you have made little Dave the dachshund from our August issue, and you all seem to love him! However, we've found a small mistake in the instructions - most of you seem to have cleverly stitched him naturally and not even noticed! In step 4, you should pin and sew the two bellies together along the belly, not along the legs. We're very sorry for any inconvenience this error has caused and hope this helps anyone who might be having problems. Happy stitching!

    Sew 61 Teacher Gifts correction

    Correction to Teacher Gifts (p88 - issue 61 of Sew) Step 3 should read: Lay the wadding out and place the back piece of the notebook cover right side up on top. Position the folded sleeves, right sides out, on top of the fabric... rather than Lay the back piece of the notebook cover right side up and place the wadding on top, Position the folded sleeves, right sides out, on top of the wadding... Sorry for any inconvenience. Happy stitching!

    Hi, We did a feature on overlockers in our May issue (p24). Our model of the month was Bernina 800DL (which is the one they used on the Sewing Bee!) It's an easy to use model, ideal for someone who's never used one before and in the lower price range. It's worth checking out all the big brands, as their machines are all reliable. Take a look at what features they include and be aware that price points vary hugely. Hope that helps!
