This is a very special season because…well, I’ll let Ellen tell you:SIA end of the line Sew it All TV Season 9 news + book giveaway!

Dear Viewers,

I’m so excited to share Sew it All series 900 with you. I really think it’s our best season yet. The mix of projects and guests really makes the season one to watch!

I always enjoy thinking back to the week we taped the series (Yes, that’s right: We tape the entire 13-episode series in one week!). I had 3-month-old twins at the time and had to stop taping every two hours or so to feed them. My wardrobe was so problematic for this reason, as nothing was easily removable. So I practically had to dress/undress nine times throughout the day! Other than that, the guests were amazingly accommodating, and the crew was a delight as always.

Sew it All began as a little dream I had of presenting sewing as easy and accessible to the masses—“instant gratification sewing,” as I like to call it. I used to hear “People really sew?” all the time. Now it’s not a question anyone asks me. I’d like to think the talent, editors and crew behind Sew it All had a small hand in that change of thought.

It’s with a heavy heart that I tell you that we’re no longer producing Sew it All—the TV show and the magazine. I will miss it immensely. From the guests I met along the way and the viewers I made into friends, to the projects we made and the bloopers we taped, all of it holds a special place in my heart. I managed to have three babies in the five years since Sew it All first aired, though I feel like the show was also one of my babies.

Though I’m saddened by the end of Sew it All, it’s also the beginning of greater initiatives for the sewing division of Interweave/F+W. The show’s departure affords us more opportunity to do bigger and better things, such as new and exciting video initiatives, kit programs, pattern collections and more.

In the coming months, you’ll see a lot more from us, as we bring you online education offerings in the form of webinars and courses; entertaining and educational videos on Craft Daily, Sew Daily and Shop Sew it All; and special exclusive products you can’t find anywhere else. We hope to be your go-to source for everything sewing! We’ll continue to keep you updated on our Sew it All Facebook page, and if you’d like to make sure you don’t miss a beat, sign up for our monthly Sew News eNewsletter.

Thank you so much for supporting sewing on television. We couldn’t have come this far without you!

    I am sad to read this, I really enjoy watching the show. Each of this new season’s shows will be extra special.

    One question, will Sew News still be published?

    Thank you.

    I have gotten so many good ideas from this show. The magazine is not in stores around here. I watch PBS from 3 to 4:30 for sewing and quilting shows on Saturday afternoons.

  8. Cindy Byrd says:

    I am very sad and disappointed to hear this. One of my great joys is finding a sewing magazine when I go to a book or grocery store. It’s a joy that has become harder and harder to find as so many sewing-related magazines are either not being carried in stores or are being closed down. As the magazines tend to be expensive (for me), I usually check it out closely to see if it contains information that is of real interest to me. But when I do buy them, I hold on to them forever. I recently made 2 items from the most recent Sew It All, Do the Duffle and Totes Adorbs. I will miss the magazine and the show. Cindy Byrd. Ogden, UT

  9. Cheryl O says:

    This is sad.
    I *just* subscribed to the magazine; does that mean the one issue I recieved today is also the last?

  10. brenda says:

    came to the internet to see if I could find out about the birth of your baby since it was obvious you were not pregnant on todays episode. What sad news to find this will be the last season. This program was so great to see a project from start to finish and any great tips to enhance even a seasoned seamstresses knowledge.
    Best wishes and blessings for your family and new endeavors. Perhaps you will come back again and will miss us as much as we will miss you.
