The time of year to shimmer and dazzle is on its way, and Threads #194 (Dec. 2017/Jan. 2018) certainly does shine.

Our Fabric Lab department takes you through sewing and care tips for working with eye-catching metallic fiber fabrics, while our cover story, “Sloper Solutions” by Judith Neukam, will show you the best options to create a custom fitting template.

Here’s a sneak peek at what’s inside the new issue:


Our “Best Tip” comes from Laurie Boisvert of Port Joli, Nova Scotia, Canada. Inside the issue, she explains how she improvised to add arms to her dress form, p.12.








Find out How to Sew Crisp and Clean Collars. In “Precise Edges on Collars & Lapels,” p. 32, instructor Pamela Leggett explores how to keep the seamlines out of sight.




Here are gift ideas for those who sew on the go,  an online highlight from the print article, “Inspiring Gifts,” p. 62, which showcases great holiday gifts for sewing enthusiasts.



Check out tested patterns from the issue’s Pattern Review, pp. 26–30:
