Coat in Issue 67

genevieve | Posted in General Discussion on

My copies of Threads only go back to the 80s (in number).  Does anyone have a copy of Issue 67; I am interested in the coat on the cover – the ‘stitch-and-slash’ methodology.  Could anyone give me some details on this one?  best wishes to you all, Happy New Year.   genevieve.

    The article was written by Kathleen Deneris.  Nannette Holmberg has done much work in this technique. I Googled her - here's the first hit I got.

    Her book "Variations in Chenille" is available on Amazon. Hope this helps.

      Katina, you are a wealth of information.  I saw faux chenille quilts, but not wearables.  Another item on my list of things to try.  Thanks. 

      As you can see, I am gleening the threads for ideas and interesting topics and info. giggle!

        Rodezzy, your enthusiasm is so infectious! We enjoy your posts here on Gatherings.

        Did I tell you my friend sent me a book "Knit Knit" and your ankle boot lady from the DIY network is profiled in it - with the boots?

          What, that's sensational.  Who is the book author?  Sounds like I've go to have that one too (giggle).  "Wheres my son; mama needs a new book!"  Ha Ha I'm going to goggle it.

          Guess What?  It's my birthday Tuesday Jan 16.  I'll be 56.  Hurray!  I made another year and still sane or (partially).  I'm a maniac.....maniac and you know.....got to keep those hooks and yarn on the go!!! Ha Ha Ha Ha I'm nuts!

          I completed another cropped sweater jacket last night.  Will post pics Monday I hope.  It was very late when I finished.  Couldn't put it down and still pondering if it's completely......completely done.  Should I pick up stitches and rib knit a cuff or just crochet it on, or put one on at all?

          I am going to a Sew-A-Thon in the morning with my quilt guild members.  Maybe that will jump start me to finish my quilts.  HELP ME GET BACK TO SEWING (Aaaahhhh)

            Hey Rodezzy, happy birthday - mine was earlier this month. And what exactly is sane anyway!

            Here's the book:

            KnitKnit: Profiles + Projects from Knitting's New Wave (Hardcover)by Sabrina Gschwandtner

            on Amazon. I love it - it's your kind of thing too, I think.

            See, that's what you get for not filling out your profile....HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!!!!!  and many more!!!!

            Thanks for the info.  Got to get to work...be back later today.  XOXOXOXOX

            Wow, I read all the Amazon reviews (I know I said I was going to get back to work) and they were great.  Yes, this is the book for me.  I can never follow a pattern totally.  This book should be exciting to see.  I'll be ordering it next week.  Got to have it. 

            Thanks.

            Happy birthday! I'm another one who didn't fill out my profile, my birthday was on the 9th. Yeah Capricorns!

            I have both books by Nanette Holmberg on the subject of faux chenille, they are great books, I'd recommend them. There are patterns that are to be enlarged for some of the garments right in the books which is great. She has instructions for some other things like cushions as well. Creating faux chenille may be time consuming but the results are well worth it. Marsha.

        I found the issue and what I will do is have the article scanned on Tuesday (we are getting a wicked snowstorm here in Connecticut tomorrow!!) - if you send me your email address I can email it to you. It s 3 pages long.

          Thank you so much.  Having a forum of sewing colleagues is just wonderful.  Take care re the snow storm - we have had very hot days - 42 deg C!  THank you for offering to scan,  someone else has already done that for me.  Best wishes   Genevieve.
