Check Out the New Modern Seamster Magazine for Free

Amidst rumors this week that Sew Simple magazine is about the join the ranks of the numerous publications that have shut their doors since the downturn in the economy, I am delighted to have learned about Modern Seamster, a hip new magazine that combines the “worlds of fashion, sewing, music, art and culture, all through the eye of a needle.”

The second issue includes some excellent illustrated tutorials for beginning, intermediate and advanced level sewers (or seamsters), such as how to do a blanket stitch, box stitch reinforcement, edge stitching and knife pleats.  In addition, this issue includes an article about pilates for sewers, a fascinating look at sewing themed tattoos, and an undercover expose on a fur costume convention.

Check out the current issue for free online at, but be forewarned – in addition to an irreverant attitude, the magazine also comes with some unnecessary foul language, copious amounts of alcohol, and some gratuitous nudity (really, I’m not kidding).

Although it will be a terrible shame to see Sew Simple cease publication if the rumors are true, I must applaud the publishers of Modern Seamster for having  the guts, and the obvious love for sewing, that it takes to startup a magazine in this kind of business climate!

    Are they serious? This is for REAL? I definitely wont buy this trash, who needs gratuitous porn with a chaser of foul language? Not me and not my young daughters who love to pour over my other sewing magazines. Jeez! I don’t have to censure those! What a shame this publication is. If this is the way the sewing industry is turning and they must resort to peddling garbage then we are in real trouble. I understand their target demographic is shifting to the younger set but, REALLY???? This is how to go about it? Total garbage, buy something with class and quality like Vogue magazine! I do not applaud this magazine.

    I don’t think anyone has the right to judge someone’s art. You have the right not to buy the magazine if you pick it up and see something you do not like. But to FLAME someone and their work is rude and nauseating. How would you like it if someone judged you or your children. Someone’s garbage may be someone’s diamond.
