The Many Blogs of David Page Coffin
Former Threads senior editor and longtime author, David Page Coffin has been busy making the many facets of garment construction much clearer – on the web and in print. His many blogs, books and tutorials are ones every sewer should know about. Here’s a sampling of what he’s been up to lately.
David’s most active blog, DPC On Making Trousers, features a preview of his new book, Making Trousers for Men and Women: A Multimedia Sewing Workshop, that serves as a how-to for using its additional DVD. While this blog mainly offers information related to his book, he has also provided links to his recent finds: fabric sources for dress shirts and neckties, and Jeffery Diduch’s detailed tailoring blog.
Two of David’s other blogs, My Virtual Workshop and DPC’s Sewing Stuff, offer video previews of CD-ROM workshops he has helped to create with accomplished sewers Marcy Tilton, Kathryn Brenne, and Maggie Backman. Don’t miss the sample video tutorials and photographs of their work.
You can bet we’ll be following along to see what fantastic tutorials David serves up next.
