    Honestly, though it sounds a little unexciting perhaps, I'm looking forward to the feature on zippers -- I seem to having constant zip issues lately & need some expert help :)

  2. User avater LeLe_inSC April 24th

    I love threads magazine. You have so many things that are extremely helpful to me. I look forward to the beginner teach yourself to sew series I always enjoy. I learn several things in every issue I read. I am self teaching myself to see and can't wait to see the new things in Threads to try while waiting on the next issue. Thank you very much for all of the work, effort, and knowledge that you put into your mags.

    Any issue with fitting techniques is of interest. Patterns are not what they once were - quantity does not equal quality. Updating our knowledge of fitting today's patterns with clear and understandable tips is helpful.

    Button strip for delicates

    I'm most interested in the zipper looks like it has wonderful tips for actually removing teeth in a too-long zipper.

    I'm salivating for the seamless lace article. Just watched the video and, as always, Judith Neukam tantalizes the uninitiated, and corrals the spurned skeptics.

    In this video, Judith utilizes her diplomatic skills to all but reunite divided countries. Lace was never easy, nor inviting, but Ms. Neukam rewrites the future of this fabric.

    Can "man lace" be far behind?

  7. Dusky April 28th

    I think the article on the ruffler, I have one lurking somewhere so some technique and inspiration would be really useful.

  8. craftybanner April 28th

    I'm excited to see the pyramid pillow. My mom and I love to buy fabric for each other and pillows are a great way to use these one of a kind's.

  9. AliceEliza April 28th

    I'm looking forward to the article on using the ruffler.

  10. Maryl43 April 28th

    It's a toss up between the articles about zippers or the skirt fitting

  11. prpr April 28th

    I'm very interested in the article on skirt fitting, because I don't feel that my sewn skirts are fitted to me as well as ready-to-wear skirts. I'm eager to learn how to correct that.

  12. User avater krawz April 28th

    I'm looking forward to the bust adjustment article and since I love piping I always look forward to seeing ideas to use piping!

  13. User avater rosemaryschild April 28th

    How to use a ruffler attachment-I have many feet-some of which I'm not sure if I am using them right.

  14. becca21 April 28th

    Button strips...I could have used this a time or two. I also love how to fit the skirt.

  15. CrafterKitty April 28th

    I'm looking forward to the articles about the ruffler, how to fit a skirt and custom bust fitting.

  16. NGuy April 28th

    Would like to hear about the bust fitting techniques.

  17. user-4021799 April 28th

    There's not a page that doesn't get scrutinized when I get my Threads magazine. I will say, however, that anything having to do with bust fitting will always pique my interest!

  18. webolton April 29th

    Oh Goodness, I would LOVE to learn more about using the ruffler. :)

  19. LizInPA April 29th

    I'm most excited to review the article on perfecting piping techniques. I haven't added piping to my skillset yet and I know that it would add a depth of dimension to my fashion and home decor creations.

  20. Suellap April 30th

    I'm intrigued by the article on removable button strips. I have some wonderful buttons I'd love to use but would never stand either dry cleaning or washing. This could really boost my clothing wow factor.


  21. bajjmayer April 30th

    I am VERY interested in the new techniques for accurate fitting article--I love to make clothes but struggle to get and exact fit--"good enough" is no longer good enough for me!

  22. VintageLove April 30th

    I'm looking forward to seeing what the button strip is all about. I also want to read the article on cotton and the other on the ruffler.
