I just wanted to check in here on my little neglected blog and let you know that we're now accepting submissions for another Simply Handmade Sewing book, scheduled to be released in September of 2012. The response has been so impressive to our first sewing book that we just had to make another! The deadline to submit is Thursday, March 15th and this is what we're looking for:
Autumn in the Air - Send us your stitched autumn-themed projects! Think leaves, harvest, and back-to-school!
Spooky Stitches - If it’s sewn and scary, we want it. Halloween themed décor, treat packaging, costumes, and more!
To Carry - This section includes handbags, market bags, clutches, and altered canvas bags.
Patchwork - Get creative with this one. We want traditional and not so traditional patchwork projects!
Applique - Whether it's fabric on fabric or paper on paper, show us your applique projects! This includes applique décor, accessories, and art!
Pin Cushions - We want the cute and the functional. What’s your take on this fun craft trend?
Embroidery - If you’ve stitched by hand or embellished with your high-speed sewing machine, we’re looking for anything and everything which includes embroidery!
To Wear - We’re looking for hats, children's clothes, men’s ties, embellished shirts, brooches, scarves, etc.
Beautiful Basics: Felt - If it’s created from felt and is sewn, we want it!
Wedding - Send wedding-themed projects which are sewn, including but not limited to: décor, ring pillows, and bridal accessories.
The Boutique - This section is for anything that is stylish and stitched, yet doesn't fit into another category.
You may not have seen the revamped Northridge Publishing submission system, yet. It's amazing and oh-so-convenient. If you have a stitched project in any of the above categories, you may submit it right throught the site, here: http://www.northridgepublishing.com/forms/submit-creation
