Threads Magazine Collection

Manya | Posted in General Discussion on

I have a complete set of “Threads” mag from the first edition of Oct/Nov 1985 to Aug/Sep 1997 in excellent condition. Is anyone interested in purchasing such a treasure? I loved getting them while I was capable of doing all the wonderful things they showed, but must part with them now. Make me an offer if you are interested. Thanks.

    I would be very interested in purchasing you collection but I'm really bad at this 'bidding' part -

    So if you could tell me how many copies there are, and how much you had in mind - it would be a little more helpful.

      Hi, Shelly. I have 12 years of Threads from the very first copy in 1985 to the Aug. issue of 1997. 72 mags in all. I'm asking $100 for the full collection, or a decent offer. I've checked eBay and the ones posted there are asking about $3 a copy, so I thought this was a reasonable price. Let me know. Thanks. Manya

        Hi Manya,

        Could you possibly find out from the post office, as to how it would be cheapest to ship the magazines to Israel?

        That way I would be able to send you the money and pay for the postage as well.

          Shelly, the Post Office says the best way to ship them is "Economy M-Bag" (?) It would take 4-6 weeks. They may be just over the weight limit (22 lb. each) in two packages, so I might have to send a couple of them separately, but the price is just under $70 total. It's expensive, I know. Please let me know what you decide. Manya

            I would very much appreciate it if you could send me the magazines as you described. In the meantime, I will be forwarding you my personal home address to your private email address (so please check your inbox)

            Best Wishes,

    Hi!  I know that Shelly beat me to the punch on this, but I am also very interested in your collection, so please consider me to be a backup offer, just in case something happens.  Does anyone else have a collection they would like to sell?

      Thanks for your interest. Looks like Shelly and I have a deal. Will let you all know when they actually go off to Jerusalem. This has been fun. Manya

        Perhaps you would like to tell us a little bit about your self - what sort of sewing have you been doing, how did you come to sewing in the first place etc.

            No Jean, It's good for you for pointing me in the right direction ;)

            Thank you so, so much!

            Best regards,

          To shelly and all: the Threads magazine collection went to the Post Office and on to Jerusalem on Saturday, May 6. They say it takes 4-6 weeks for delivery. I'm sure Shelly will let us all know when they arrive. Thank you all for your interest.
