Conversational Threads

years of Threads

threadbabe | Posted in Feedback on Threads on

After 40 years of playing with threads and a mere 9 years of subscribing, I have so much to learn from you, still.  Once upon a time, I sewed with wool and made suits, coats, etc. Then learned new tricks for stretchy knits in time for kid clothing.  Now it’s time for relaxed sewing- for casual northwest living, for asian-influenced wearables, for donate-able lap quilts, and I love all your tips.  But always, your quality articles and photography are inspiring me to DO IT- with threads and fabric. While an occasional jump into knitting, embroidery, quilting, or crafts is fun, I really appreciate getting your expertise in clothing.  My favorite articles are from the Ericson family, Lois and Diane, both such creative designers.  So, thanks, I think you are doing great!      from Threadbabe near Seattle

           I AM SELF TAUGHT BY EXPERIENCE WITH SOME HELP FROM BOOKS AND FACTORY WORKER NEIGHBORS. THE ACCIDENTAL DISCOVERY OF THREADS IN JULY 1996 (#65)WAS AN IMPORTANT GIFT. I HAVE SINCE ACQUIRED EVERY BACK ISSUE AS WELL AS THE CURRENT ONES .THESE ARE MY TEXTBOOKS.THANK YOU FOR YOUR FIRST CLASS PUBLICATION.

             PLEASE CONTINUE TO INCLUDE ARTICLES ON SKILLS OTHER THAN SEWING,I FIND THEM TRULY INTERESTING AND A HEALTHY MIND EXPANDING EXERCISE
