Wow, the latest issue of Threads (#156, I think) is G-R-E-A-T!!! That article on Balenciaga was FANTASTIC…I was happy to see it went on for some time, and didn’t stop at only 2 or 3 pages, and had LOTS of pictures! The Kenneth King article on shadow applique was delicious, and I got lots of laffs over the sewing disaster stories; glad they didn’t happen to ME! (it was also nice to feel a teeny tiny bit of schadenfreude after reading about the disasters that happened to the “sewing superstars”; they are ‘human’ after all! 😉 )
All in all it was such a great issue I almost felt like smoking a cigarette after finishing it! I will remark that I am glad you have shifted all the amateur and beginner articles to “Sewstylish”; there are any number of rinky-tink project articles and enough sewing mags that cater to beginners out there; nice to have a mag that caters exclusively to advanced sewers!
