2019 Magazine Collection All the magazines are in easy-to-use pdf format and can be accessed by clicking on the link on each page. The link will open in a browser window and you can download your magazine from there. The templates are all full size and may need joining together in some cases. Issue 100 is our special bumper anniversary issue and for this issue only the templates are provided in a separate file - it was simply too large to include them in the main magazine. Please note, I am happy for you to sell any items you personally have made from these patterns but you are not licensed to go into mass production. Please respect my copyright and do not share the links to the magazines online. Thank you xx

I do hope you’ve enjoyed browsing through copies of the Bustle & Sew Magazine from 2019. Bustle & Sew is a mother-daughter team, myself, Helen, and my daughter Rosie, who run Bustle & Sew from my home – the station master's house adjacent to a heritage steam railway in beautiful rural Somerset, very close to the lovely city of Bath. Our magazines celebrate all that we love about life here in the countryside, with sewing very much at its heart of course. My own passion is for creating new designs that I hope will inspire others to pick up needle and thread and discover the pleasure and satisfaction of creating something for themselves. All of our patterns and our Magazine are sold as easily downloadable pdf files aimed at the stitcher with beginner to intermediate skills so are attractive to a wide audience. As well as digital products we also sell a range of unique craft kits.

To see our full range of patterns and kits - and if you’ve enjoyed this collection, find out about subscribing to our magazine, please just CLICK HERE to visit the Bustle & Sew website. Best wishes, and happy stitching!
