I really look forward to each new issue of Threads and have found that even if there is an article that doesn’t pertain to me at the moment that inevitably the information will come in handy. My first task when researching something new is to review all the back issues. Just recently re-visited the article on felting wool jersey as I decided to make a jacket from fabric I am creating using wool felt; found lots of anwers and inspiration – just what I needed. Even though I love the cut edge look of the wool jersey felt I would have liked more detail on how to finish the front/hemlines, etc., of plain wool felt., so I won’t have a problem with it stretching out of shape with wear. I am still experimenting with this project but there doesn’t seem to be a lot of information available if you want a more elegant and less country look.
One of my personal favorite features is your pattern selection for the coming season and fabric suggestions. I just love these articles as it gets so confusing when there are so many choices and most of us have limited time to review everything available. I love simple jacket patterns that allow for experimentation with various media to wear with longer dresses or pants and t-shirt type silk or cotton tops. I would love to see an article where you can mix and match using some basic patterns and a variety of fabrics.
Thanks for a wonderful magazine that I plan to subscribe to forever!
