After all the sincere effort on the part of so many Threads readers giving feedback, with maybe not the majority, but a healthy slice begging the magazine to please not “dumb down”; to be the cutting edge of creativity — Threads has decided to try to please everyone. So those of us looking for “creativity-juice starters” for our sewing are left with what — Belle Armoir — a big advertisement for Stampington.
So, despite all the machine embroidery mags out there, there’s an article on machine embroidery. Then, there’s tailoring and How To. And for creativity, we get Marcy Tilton showing us how to make a neat bias collar. Like that, but need a whole lot more. Actually, I thought the best bit was on washing your stash. But, I already do just that to experiment with texture, so what did I get from this issue??
Zip. I’m outta here and outta buying your magazine. And I’m pissed that I wasted my energy trying to make it clear to you that us creatives have nothing out there. What happened — the almighty dollar??
