All I could find was a reference in a 10-year-old issue of Threads and the notation Karen Howland gives detailed sloper-drafting directions in her book Cut to the Fit (888-683-2032, to order).

It's really discouraging to find that google and my usual OOP booksites had nothing. Sorry.

The best thing you can do is go to the THREADS site and do a search for her article(s) that were published years ago, that Karla mentioned, and print them out.

I would also try posting a "wanted" classified here on PR...I always see if I have something in my bookshelf (unused) that someone needs...

From an old Threads article.
Karen Howland gives detailed sloper-drafting directions in her book Cut to the Fit (888-683-2032, to order).

Good luck.

I found a listing for this book in Amazon, but none are available; in fact, very little info. However, the Amazon site does list the ISBN numbers:

Unknown Binding: 103 pages
Publisher: Kensinger Press (1995)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0964896419
ISBN-13: 978-0964896413

I've often wondered what happened to Karen Howland as well. I have her books and think the Threads articles she's written are great.

I think I just found her on LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/pub/4/0B7/097. I haven't tried contacting her via LinkedIn (wonder if she realizes a lot of people are still interested in her books).

Hope this helps.

She used to post on some of the boards around like PMB, but I haven't seen her in quite awhile. I think she decided to retire.
