Interesting. I wonder if this is new content, or repurposed articles from issues of the magazine?

Has anyone previewed this book? It sounds like it covers so many fitting issues in 224 pages. I wonder about the format, photos, drawings, directions, etc. There is no "look inside" feature on Amazon or the Threads website.

LauraTS, I was wondering the same thing. Of course even if it is old content, it would be nice to have all the fitting articles in the same book.

I can only speak for two previous books which Threads put out and the contents were from articles from the magazines, so I will assume that that will be the case in this new book. Yes, it would be nice to have all of them in one place.

That's Gl = for Gloria, not G. I.
