    love the double sided wool jacket, but would be nice to have information where to get the pattern, and complete instructions, also where to obtained the fabric for the jacket.

    I wonder how long it takes to receive my November magazine.
    I am leaving in London-UK and I subscribed on 25 of October 2010.

    I have bought your magazine for over 20 years and have always enjoyed it.I received my issue on Saturday Nov 13, read it all that day.I Really liked the article on "No Topstitching Required" cant wait to try. The Double Take article was interesting I really liked the linen jacket.I saw the small advertisement for Marcy Tilton.com, I love her patterns and did not know she also sold fabric. I spent the afternoon having a great time between her website and your magazine all very inspiring. I also go on your website I like the game of "whats missing in this picture". Thank you for all the years of inspiration and relaxing afternoons.
