Threads always changes.
I just got my new Threads today. Its a beloved subscription I look forward to receiving in the mail. I also really like the informative web site. I started reading it sometime in the mid 90’s. I do own nearly all the Threads issues though. After reading all the woeful anti- change posts I took out the very first issue.
Does Anyone else own it? check it out- The girl in the kilt- I mean come on, this magazine has gone under a lot of changes.The articles are more devoted to sewing and sewing related articles on improving our sewing.
The only thing I miss is the back page honoring our ancestors sewing. I think that’s what we all miss. Our History back page. We want to see the future of sewing and honor the past.
I agree with you on the new Threads. It is a more user friendly magazine than before. I, too, look forward to each issue and have come away with some wonderful lessons.
I have many back issues of Threads and have often gone through all of them looking for information on how to solve whatever problem I am facing - I also agree that I miss the back history page that showed some of the wonderful things that had been sewn in the past - I often used these as starting points for designs of my own - I alter patterns and make my own so almost anything can be a starting point - I have also made patterns from things that I love and want more of - the info in Threads is always helpful and relatively up-to-date - it is the only sewing magazine that I actually use and read regularly.
Thanks! We've been developing stories that bring in more of the "story" of sewing---I love that stuff also
I miss the other fiber arts...particularly the knitting. Threads had such GREAT knitting features.
Yes, I'm impressed that people remember those articles so well---I also knit---although my skill in nowhere what it is in sewing, but it does seem that much of the stuff out there is geared to beginners/intermediate and what Threads offered was more advanced content.
