Editor’s Note: Threads and Sew Styish
To clarify the distinction between Threads and Sew Stylish, please read the editorial positioning statement below from the publisher of Threads. We’ve been so pleased by the overwhelming number of subscriptions to Sew Stylish from Threads readers and their resounding positive response in the Sew Stylish magazine survey (more than 2000!). Thanks for your support! –Amber
Editiorial Position Statement from the Publisher of Threads:
Threads magazine has been serving the sewing enthusiast for more than 20 years. Recently, we redesigned the magazine to also appeal to sewers who are moderately proficient, as well as continue to serve more experienced sewers. This redesign has been very well received by the market, and we have seen an increase in our average number of copies sold on the newsstand, as well as in the number of readers who are subscribing and renewing their subscriptions to the magazine.<!—-><!—-><!—->
In light of the recent surge in interest by new sewers, we have introduced a new brand called Sew Stylish. The tagline for this new product is: Basic Training to Unleash Your Creativity. In the first few issues, this new magazine is taking the best of basic information that was introduced in Threads over the years, and offering it to the less-experienced, less-confident sewer. We have also launched a new blog site at BeSewStylish.com where sewing enthusiasts can connect and feel they are part of a larger, vibrant sewing community. <!—-><!—->
In addition we have more exciting plans in the works for the next several years, planning to introduce offerings from Taunton Press on broader fiber arts topics that are not currently covered in Threads and Sew Stylish magazines. We look forward to continuing to provide all levels of sewer, as well as other fiber artists, with the very best in instruction and information.
