Current issue of Threads

adriennewise | Posted in Feedback on Threads on


The current issue of Threads with its emphasis on vintage patterns, techniques and clothes is most interesting and inventive. 

However, I was disappointed that 6 pages of the magazine – vintage techniques – referred to articles which appeared in previous issues of Threads.

If the editors need to access ideas of previous issues could they please use ones from the very early issues – the 70’s and 80’s – as those issues are not available in libraries here in Sydney Australia.

    Which libraries in Sydney are you referring to?

    I live in Sydney and my local libraries do not have Threads. Not even Australian Stitches. So the inclusion of earlier articles, revamped, is good for me and others.

    I appreciate the articles within Threads. I have not subscribed to Threads from Day 1. I was just a baby who was not interested in Sewing.

    I cannot afford backissues, some of which are no longer in print.

    I benefit, as do others, from these articles.

    I would not mind nitting articles, which I beleive were in the earlier mags, because I do not knit or crochet. If they make a comeback, great, I can give them to my Grandma.

      Ku-ring- Gai Council library carries some issues.  I believe they keep the last three years.

        Thank you very much for your quick reply. I will visit St Ives. That is closest. I will look at Turramurra next shopping trip to the Turramurra Drapery ( think shop is still there). CherryPops

      These were not reprints of "old" articles.  I found reprinting such recent material a legitimate complaint.

        Thanks Ralphetta,

        Please don't mistake my comments as agreement to comment regarding 'old articles - reprinted'.

        I have never seen a 'reprint of an old' article throughout Threads issues.

        I shouldn't think I would.

        You have been reading this magazine a lot longer than I, so I trust your judgement.

        I did notice as did many others here that when SewStylish came out the Two Hour Gypsy Skirt became Two Hour Peasant Skirt. I would not say that was an exact reprint. Different page layout, colours and photos were used. The information and diagram was the same, details like this should not be altered. Taunton owns both Magazines so it did not breach copyright. 

        I will wait to hear from Amber on 'old articles' and 'reprinted matter'

          We reprinted Delicious Details and from popular demand added the how to---as so many readers had requested.

          Not sure what the other questions are that are circulating here.

          We do repurpose Threads articles for Sew Stylish, but they are reworked and targeted to a newer sewer.

    I'm a little confused. What articles (6 pages) are you referring to?
