I like to re-style fashion that's a bit out of date. I'm sure I'll find inspiration. I want to make some clever tennis dresses.

Re: DVD GIVEAWAY: Threads Magazine Archive, 1985-2011

I have the first DVD archive up to 2009. Even though I have all the Threads magazines, which I will never part with, the greater value of the DVD is search capability by subject. I teach and sometimes I need a crash course on a particular topic. I can research a topic by either reading at the computer or by getting issue number(s)and pulling magazines. For me, it has been a valuable resource.
