Heard about SEWN?

I guess by now everyone has heard about Sewn, the new sewing blog that will be the website that will have just about everything you can think of that you would want online as a sewer. There are forums, online advice from industry experts, conversion charts, colour wheels, free patterns and class listings.

There will be interviews with all your favorite designers, quilters, patterns makers and authors. There will be tutorials from all over the world, podcasts and coverage from shows and articles about all maner of exciting things.

Best of all, there are great unique gadgets - Fabricmatcher, which is an online tool which lets you match patterns to fabrics and see what your project will look like without sewing a stitch, and Find Fabric, which is the niftiest thing that will find the fabric you are looking for without you having to search for it for hours on the internet. It's so clever it even searches shops in your vicinity first to save you on international postage. How cool is that?

Plus there will be an online buy and sell area called SEWiNg, which is where you can sell the stuff you sew to the people out there who don't sew - and some of the ones who do !

Launch day for SEWN is June 8th so be sure to check out the site! There are great prizes offered plus over 100 blogs are joining in the Launch Party with wonderful giveaways! Go to The Sewn to see all the participating blogs.
