    Judith shows the "how to", and suddenly pattern manipulation becomes more intuitive, and less intimidating.

    When will Threads Magazine make a sewing show on television?

    With so many editors, contributors, and curious others, certainly each article could "come to life", and the shows would practically write themselves.

    Sewing legends, former employees, and people who contributed an article could do a review and update. No two shows would be the same. Sewing would be the formula, not the who and what (a sewing anthology series - perhaps the continuity being an intro by Judith herself?).

    Cooking magazines have television shows, why not a highly respected sewing magazine???

    I am broad across the back two inches up from under the arm (at the shoulder blades). How can I increase the back of a pattern just at this area?
