I have just gotten back into sewing after 20 years away.

I have a Burda magazine and like that but I would like something different.
What sewing magazine do you all suggest. I only want sewing, no quilting and or crafts, at least mostly sewing with some patterns included if possible.
thanks

I generally use single patterns, but the patterns in MyImage are nice.

La Mia Boutique. All instructions are in Italian, though.

Others are Patrones and Manequim.

I tend to sew a lot from Ottobre. I'm sewing for both myself and my daughter so I get all 6 editions (2 womens, 4 childrens) each year. It is much like Burda, in that it includes the patterns which need to be traced, but the garments are simpler and suit my lifestyle better. There are also no weird crafts!

I have used Burda in the past and still subscribe. I recently subscribed to Modellina which I believe is actually German but created in five different languages where each language/country has a different name. It's only a quarterly and you can get it through GLP. I know Italian so the language isn't a problem though i don't always know the sewing terminology in Italian but it's easy enough to find it online. I have traced a bunch of things off but not actually made them. In the two issues I have the patterns are pretty easy for the most part so you really don't need the instructions.

I have Burda and an ongoing issue with Manequim, which at some point in the near future I should be receiving instead of through a friend that works there and brings me copies back.

Fehr Trade did a review of several of them. Not my blog, but she did a lot of work giving everyone the rundown on them.

If you are referring to pattern magazines I still subscribe to Burda, though I've been more unhappy than happy with them lately.
As for sewing how to magazines I am a long time subscriber to Threads and it has gotten quite good again after a period of mediocrity. Even if you are a beginner there is a lot of good information and it's a good stimulus for improving your skills.

Thanks so much for your replies, guess there isn't any one that seems to be the best.
I think I will start buying them one at a time.

For a how to, I really like the Threads publication "Sew Stylish". It only comes out once a season, but I find it is a great digest of all the best of Threads magazine, but with a clear focus on contemporary fashion sewing, not crafts or art to wear.

I personally don't subscribe to any pattern magazines... only Threads which does occasionally have a pattern included.

BUT, I have seen so many posts on here and after reading them the two that seem to be the most popular are Burda and Ottobre.

HTH!
