I am so happy to announce that I am now the Web Editor for Sew News magazine. You can find out more here on the magazine and all its sister publications. I am working on the web side of things, lots of social media, blogs, websites, maintenance, CMS etc. I must admit I do feel a bit like the fox in the hen house. I never imagined being surrounded by sewing, knitting and quilting people, books, machines etc and get paid for it. Over the moon…
