SEW ... The Garment-Making Book of Knowledge
We chat to Barbara Emodi, give you a chance to win the book and learn how-to sew a Flat-Felled Seam.
I am a Halifax Nova Scotia (that's in Canada) sewing teacher and writer. I have taught sewing extensively in Canada, the US and Australia am a past contributing editor for Threads magazine and have written for many other sewing publications. That's my official background but really I am just a person who was born into a strong sewing culture and has sewn most days for the last 50 years. Sewing occupies my mind constantly and I am always trying to figure out a better and easier way to do the kind of day-to-day sewing folks do in their normal lives.
We head to Indianapolis to meet #FeaturedMember KatieLikeMe, an avid DIYer and craft enthusiast!
How did you find CO+K and why did you join?
I was looking to upcycle some old men's clothes my uncle donated to me, and I came across tutorials for making vests of out t-shirts and the rest was history!
What projects are you currently working on?
My wedding! I'm the sole planner of it, and I think it's my biggest project of all time!Read the rest of the interview »

We have a really small house, a 1920s Spanish Revival bungalow, but I love how cosy it is, and how the architectural details were maintained. My desk is in the nook off the dining room, and gets a ton of natural light. I can watch the crows play in our fig tree while I work.
Mix The Baudin and Lexington cocktails in #ABiteToEat with Twelve Mile Limit in New Orleans.
Come behind the scenes at Studio Katie for a #CraftRoomTour and see Katie's craft space.
The windows above my desk! They let in so much light, which is great for working by and taking photos.
