Wilsonwilson Wilsonwilson writes: After a 35 year sabbatical to raise a family, put a kid through college, put a husband through college and care for an elderly parent, I want to return to sewing. I have spent the past year doing my pre-req's; purchased a beginning sewing machine, built a fabric stash and a "how-to" reference library.
3 months ago my husband said... "Enough with the prepping, It's time to produce before your sewing machine rusts and I cancel your subscription to THREADS"
I need the 'Quick Stuff To Sew' magazine so I can 'wade' into production and keep my subscription to THREADS.
