Issue 135 February/March

Elaray | Posted in Feedback on Threads on

The February/March issue is the best issue ever! I love the couture techniques featured. Thank you for bringing Threads back to it’s glory.


I sew, therefore I am

    Yes, yes, yes, Ladies of Threads, You have, indeed, outdone yourselves.  This is the best issue I've ever seen.  Gail

      I concur. This issue is great. I like the themes that seem to be going on in issues.

    I so much agree!  I just began my subscription, but I received the last issue, the Jan-Feb one and the March one, and I feel like I'm getting mini courses in couture sewing.  Yes!  I wasn't interested when I was younger--too much of a hurry with 3 kids--but now, if I sew, I'd like it to be something more lasting and worth keeping.

    I remember buying Threads--it seems like maybe more than 10 years ago--when it seemed to feature hand sewing techniques from many ethnicities and time periods.  Was that the same magazine?

      Premier Issue #1 October/November 1985 sold for $3.50.  The highlight of this issue is weaving tapestries.  And so it went for about 5 years, a little sewing, weaving, knitting, needlepoint, rug making, etc.  

      The magazine now includes machine embroidery, and of course this site with video tips, tricks & much, much more............keeping up with the modern gal and guy.

      Threads Magazine came into my life with issue #13, I don't know how it didn't come to my attention before that because I have been sewing all my life, and this year I will be seventy-five.The new year seems to be a good time to clear out the old and prepare for the new. I have gone through my fabric stash, sent some to the thrift store and some to a young mother (great niece) who sews for her daughter, along with children's patterns that have accumulated over the years. Now, it is on to the wardrobe. I have a difficult time disposing of clothing that I have made, even though I haven't worn them in some time. It is not a case of not fitting, it is a case of being slightly, ever so slightly, out of style (read 1980s and previous).But this time I am going to be single-minded and get rid of at least half of my wardrobe - the half I don't wear. It made me wonder what other sewers think about clearing out their favourites, and along with that, what items in your wardrobe have stood the test of time and you still wear, or at least are keeping in your closet.I have a wool plaid skirt I bought in 1954 and it has been through at least three lives with alterations and changes in style. It must go but it has a lot of memories attached, brought home my first son in it with the zipper undone, wore it pleated for 20 years and then took the pleats out, turned it vertically and wore it for another 20 years as as straight skirt with fringed edges. I'd love to hear your take on this. Mostly, I would like to hear that I should get rid of the extras, buy more fabric and continue sewing!

    It's a lovely issue, very much like the marvelous Threads of old!
