I was so happy to find out about this press point that has foreign press and craft magazines. I saw so many craft magazines I had no idea they even existed!
Among them I found the new issue of Sew Stylish, which carries some very interesting articles, about making a jacket with fleece, colour blocking, eliminating flaws from pants and making your own dress form.
I'm not up for making a fleece jacket. I don't really like that fabric, but, since last year, I've bought this beautiful two sided 100% wool fabric, which is red on one side and grey on the other side and I was hoping to see some techiques about how to finish the edges. Instead I found techniques about how to reduce the bulk, which is ok too, because I'll have to think about that issue as well. It's an issue totally worth investing in. Even if you' ve read such articles before, I bet there's something new to learn from this issue.
I also noticed that many articles are marked "Adapted from Threads magazine". So... should I buy Threads instead? I've been thinking about subscribing for a while now ...
Finally, I have to ask ... why is the illustration so dark? I mean, there are no vivid colours and I kind of got the feeling I was holding an old magazine ... Sewing magazines are fashion magazines too, right? And fashion magazines are so alive! Just a feeling I got, maybe you don't agree.
See you around
