Hey everybody out there. I've been contemplating subscribing to a sewing magazine, but I want to only pick ONE, and so I'd like to get opinions from experienced sewers. I am NOT into quilting, so anything like that is out. What is your recommendation for your GO-TO sewing mag & why?

Thanks for your opinions!!

There was quite a good thread on that subject awhile back - here it is!

If you could only have one sewing magazine....

Probably " Threads " although I get " Sew Beautiful " as I love how Heirloom sewing looks and still have not done smocking or pintucks.

The Threads archival DVD, what a bargain!

This will ultimately be your choice. I suggest looking on-line at Threads or SewStylish. They both excellent magazines and one may appeal to you more than the other.

Here is a link to SewStylish. I forgot it is no longer offered for subscription.

Thanks for all the information! I really appreciate it and think I'm going for..... 'Threads'! I kinda figured it was the best, but wanted to double check w/ others first.

One of the reasons I recommended the DVD is that the older (much older) Threads magazines seemed to be packed with a lot more information. Much of the information is timeless, and, the archival DVD is certainly current enough to have plenty of information on knits and new fabric blends. The price may seem steep compared to a one year subscription but the dollar per issue (with the DVD) is unbeatable and you'll have a great sewing library at your disposal.

I like threads but my favorite is Budra wolrd of fashion. does it count since it is basically a book of patterns? It also has sewing tutorials and some other sewing ideas. I can't wait for it to come in the mail everymonth
