As you know, we announced the new Classic Sewing magazine last month, and the results have been phenomenal. Now, I am excited to reveal the cover of our premier issue.
A Sneak Peek at the Classic Sewing Cover
Do you recognize our little star? That’s right, it’s my granddaughter Amelia. And it was so special to share the creation of this magazine with her.
As much as sewists will look forward to this exciting sneak peek, they’re truly rejoicing that we will have a luxury sewing magazine with the industry’s best editorial director, Kathy McMakin, at the helm.
Introducing Kathy McMakin
Kathy has been in the sewing industry for more than 30 years. She is recognized as the leading expert in education and innovation in the sewing industry. She started her needlework career at the Martha Pullen Company in 1981, where she worked alongside Martha Pullen in launching and developing the heirloom sewing industry.
The University of Alabama is Kathy’s alma mater and where she was one of the Alabama cheerleaders during the reign of Bear Bryant. She met her husband, David McMakin, a star football player at Alabama, and the rest is history. They have two children and three grandchildren.
Kathy is a master sewist. She is known for her ability to motivate and educate sewists internationally through the curriculum and other programs she has authored. Her students love her sense of humor and her witty smile.
She will lead the Classic Sewing team here at Hoffman Media with the magazine development and expansion programs into the sewing industry. Her vision and creativity will make the magazine the best in the industry.
To know her is to love her, and you will enjoy seeing beautiful examples of her work here on The Ribbon In My Journal. Kathy inspired me to expand my sewing skills years ago and for that I am thankful.
