LOL! I don't know what thread you are talking about but I think it has something to do with SHOES? I LOVE your enthusiasm! Welcome to PR!

If Liana is still a member, she is the one who made her own shoes. I know she has a blog, but can't remember the name.

If I remember correctly, Liana had an article in Threads magazine on how to recover pumps with fabric. The only review that currently comes to mind about making shoes is SewVeryTall's.

If you are going to London, Prescott and Mackay offer a course. These are some of the shoes we made.

There is also a shoemaking course in NYC but I've never taken it.

Mary Wales Loomis has instructions and materials. NAYY. DH said I couldn't start this as a hobby too, BTW. I guess a sewing room and a shoe making room would be too much for him.

Also you can google shoe making and get lots of websites.

One thread on that is at shoemaking--not so easy to find, though, but I knew I'd seen one.

I found that the Loomis book and some others (with more of a variety, and flats, which are my usual) were in my library's system. I didn't have time to take it up but someday.

If you like slippers, this pattern is very nice. I keep meaning to write a review, as I've made regular slippers and morphed it with a Butterick historical footwear pattern for costume use.

I have the book by Mary, and she makes it look very easy.
I started to start a pair, but I have a suprisingly difficult time finding heels and soles in this modern age. Go figure, I thought you could buy anything on the world wide web. It just takes more focus and concentration than I have right now...
Really, I can't find heels and soles that I like and I can't bring myself to tear apart one of the pairs that I like.

But, I now have a pair of Brightons that I really need to let go of, and may take apart for copying.
