New SAGA Stitch Along

Are you following the new SAGA Stitch Along?

The information is on the SAGA Smock Along Facebook page.

This Stitch Along is a silk ribbon embroidery project and you will end up making a travel tissue case!

The case will be similar to this one, with a different embroidery design.

The Stitch Along is being lead by Wanda DeWitt. Wanda has made many of these cases to match the many sewing reticules she has made over the years.

This Stitch Along should be another fun one! Why not join in?

Guess what is on the way?

Yes, the next issue of SAGANews!

This is the cover of the first issue of SAGANews for 2018. You'll have to wait until you receive it to find out all about the Convention in Winston-Salem and read the great articles in this issue.

Don't forget- the back page mailing label is now your membership card. You will have one on each issue.

By the way, if you did not renew your SAGA membership for 2018 by early February you will not be receiving this issue or any other issues until you renew!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Today I am sharing photos of a smocking design from SAGANews Volume 26 Issue 1, Cate's Candied Hearts, designed by Connie Moses.

 The design is worked on a bishop style dress, but could easily be adapted for a straight yoke or insert.

If you don't have a copy of this issue of SAGANews and would like the design, please email me at
Sorry this design will only be available to current SAGA members!
