Spring is here at last! The clear and beautiful leafless light lasts only a short time, but long enough to gently awaken curiosity and creativity. This is, after all the season of optimism and renewed energy.

Inspiration is everywhere! Online, be sure to visit A Stitch in Time, the BBC series that investigates historic garments and recreates them in a charming English studio. And make time for a field trip to the newly re-opened Haberman's, now in Clawson. Local favorite Christine Jonson now includes sew-alongs with her fabulous patterns. Sounds like fun.

How lovely it will be to set aside sweater knits and substantial wools, and indulge ourselves in the touch of silk, chiffon, embroidered net and linen. If you begin now, you'll jhave that first warm weather dress finished in time for sandals!
