I’ve been sewing since I was a kid, but I’ve never felt confident in my skills and usually felt unhappy with the results. I look to Threads to bring my skill level to another level. I chose Threads, instead of a magazine geared for mid- to average- level abilities, because the articles about very high quality projects challenge me to stretch my skills.
Odd as it may seem, I am usually disappointed by the latest issue – there’s only one or two articles that interest me. But I keep all my back copies, and periodically pick them up and read them. Something that seemed dull 2 or 3 years ago is interesting and thought-provoking today.
I do wish that Threads covered quilting. I also quilt, and would like a magazine that similarly challenged my skills, but I haven’t been able to find one.
