Book Review: Sew Many Notions

I am on a listing from C&T Publishing and from Martingale that I get ebook copies of new books that come out.  I have the opportunity to review them.  It’s really fun and I enjoy seeing the new books that come out.  Every once in awhile I find a book that I think I would really love and I request a hard copy of the book.  I recently got an awesome book from Martingale, Sew Many Notions by Debbie Busby.

Look at the cover.  What a fun looking book!


The project that got me and made me know I really wanted this book was the cute, cute pincushion that says “Sew” on it.  Notice that the letters for the word are yellow and the stitching done in black.  It makes it looks like a tape measure….the CUTEST for sure.  I am actually needing a couple new pincushions so this is perfect.  Being I work on quilting both upstairs in my sewing room and downstairs prepping projects, I find my pincushions are always in the wrong spot.  Having a few more would prevent extra trips up and down the stairs!! This on is on my to-do list!

I thought this little wall hanging was fun too.  I love the saying…


No worries for those of you who haven’t done a lot of stitching, there is a nice stitch reference in the book.


Here are more pincushions.  These are fun too.


Kelli and I got a big giggle when we saw this bookmark!  How cute for an easy gift for a quilting friend!!  What do you think?
The patterns for the projects are on a big pattern sheet in the back of the book.  I love that the patterns are full sized.  One of my hugest pet peeves is when a book requires me to run to the copy store and get the patterns enlarged.  With my job it’s really hard to get away so I really appreciate full sized patterns.


I’m so happy to have this new book in my home quilting library.  I can imagine me doing several of the patterns…and making some of gifts too!!

Thanks so much to Martingale for passing the book on to me!!

  1. Thanks for sharing this review – I have seen pictures of this book and wondered about it – I love the cover. So I just may have to acquire this one for my quilt book library! I love to stitch with wool! HUGS… and stitches

    Just in case you didn’t know this, if you have a printer with a scanner, you can scan a pattern, save it as a *.pdf file, open the file on your computer in Adobe, then enlarge to the size you need, then print at the correct size. You never have to leave home! Easy-peasey.
