Book Review: In Stitches by Amy Butler


  1. Hi! I'm not finished listening to this episode yet, but you mentioned that you just started saving your selvedges. Me too! You have to check out Karen Griska's Selvage Blog - (Apparenlty, you can spell it either way!) She wrote a book on the subject and her blog has lots of great patterns and ideas! I can't wait to save enough to make something. Good luck!

  2. Thanks, Denise! I'll check out that blog. Can't wait to see what you make from your selvedges! (or selvages, as it were.)
