Threads Archived Articles On-Line

WandaJ | Posted in Feedback on Threads on

Periodically, I look for archived articles on-line in the Threads magazine section. Unless, my mind is not my friend, I was of the belief that articles were once available on-line. What I find now, is brief on-line videos, and Simplicity Tips. What happened to being able to type in a topic and a page would appear with the name of the articles, its author, and a section to click on the article to bring it to the screen.

Am I doing something wrong in the search process, or have these articles disappeared from the Thread’s Website?

    Wanda, i understand what you mean, and did a bit of poking around.

    http://www.taunton.com/threads/ is where i began.

    I clicked on magazine index which gave me 'a-z' topics list and a search bar. I clicked on 'a' and clicked on the first one in the list 'ardvark adventures' which took me to issue 021 which when clicked took me to the 'table of content's page' for that issue. no links to articles.

    * In the search bar at the main homepage, i typed in cuffs, 21 items appeared. Articles here!!! Author and Issue Number .....and a link to all back issues with regard to cuffs.

    Try typing your requirement in the search bar and see if you get the same. Some searches are funny, some allow only one word - some can handle two. you need to be specific.

    I hope this helps a little.

    Cherryp :)

      OK, I will try your suggested method for searching. None-the-less, (no argument with you :->) it does seem that when I first started getting Threads and using their website -about 5 years ago- that finding past articles was not this complicated. I will let you know how I come out.  Thanks.

        Thank you!

        5yrs you say, I've only been on the site for 6mths so there may be an easier way which i haven't yet found.

        Please, let me know how you go and if you find an easier method i'll use it too.

        :)

          Now, you have really...got me thinking :->. I do hope I am right about the length of time I've been going to the Threads Magazine site. What really is a benchmark regarding how long I've been visiting sewing discussion sites is how long it's been since I started my addictive habit of buying fabric on-line, and 5 yrs is it.

          If there's someone out there that can tell me how long Threads Magazine's Website has been up, please do so, and how long this forum has been in existence would be interesting too. The answers to these questions may help with understanding my current level of sanity; particularly after an evening of pattern measuring and calculating the needed alterations :->.

            I like it when you think :)

            It would be interesting to find out how long both the fourm and website has been going. 

            Just a sec,  now i just thought of something!

            Ok i am back, I just did a quick search through the "the archives" discussions. the first post dates back to December 1998. Questions about Sergers.........

            ...Oh My, haven't we come a long way from the Janome My Lock 634D.

            Makes you wonder if these intial members are still with us today, as we have a varied age group here.

            :) Cherryp

            Thanks for searching the archives. Now I know for sure that I've been lurking in this forum for 5 yrs :->

    Hi,

    After reading new discussions, I went on to look for the links page to just go "surfin" the 'net.  What I found interesting is that there are two (that I've seen so far) lists of Threads articles on that links page.  The first one is just a list, but this one I think could prove helpful to many.

    This one has a list of articles by topic:  http://www.freespace.net/~marpin/threads.htm

    It is "Maria's Index of Threads Magazine Articles"                                                      this serious effort at cataloging should prove immensely helpful to anyone looking for an exact subject.

    I realize it might not be exactly what you're looking for, but could be helpful if you want to look up the topic and see immediately what articles are available - and then go find the articles.

      Thanks for this post. It has been quite sometime since I've seen it. I bookmarked the page as I'm sure it is one site that I would like to refer to.

      Thank you for searching and posting this link.

      :)
