A Most Flattering Rejection Letter

I got the most flattering rejection letter from Kathy Barnard, editor of Sew Beautiful magazine. I recently submitted photos of my smocked denim purse as a proposal to be published in Sew Beautiful. She sent back a very nice letter that actually made me quite happy. She said that they did not have a need for a nautical-themed bag as they have something very similar appearing in an upcoming issue. However, she also said that my smocking was "very cleanly executed." WOW. That's quite a compliment from the editor of Sew Beautiful. I never thought I would be happy about a rejection letter, but this sure made my day! :-)

  1. Connie, I am bummed about the letter, but thrilled you are trying! Keep at it and one day you will make it in! You are attempting to do something that is sometimes very hard to do, not to mention "putting yourself out there". Most people don't have the nerve to do this.
