|Chat with Deana Tierney May of Threads magazine, Wednesday, August 25th, 8 PM Eastern Time (5 Pacific, 6 Mountain, 7 Central)!
Join us on Wednesday, August 25th at 8 PM EST for a chat with Deana Tierney May of Threads magazine on "Behind the Scenes at Threads Magazine".
Deana Tierney May is the chief editor of Threads magazine, the premier publication for garment sewing enthusiasts. Articles in Threads magazine are written by trusted experts in the sewing community and are geared toward intermediate to advanced sewers who are passionate about sewing and expressing their creativity through garment sewing.
Deana has worked on the Threads magazine team for four years. Prior to joining Threads, she worked as an editor for a variety of other Taunton Press publications including Fine Gardening, and Inspired House magazines. Her magazine career started in the art department at Vanity Fair.
Like so many sewers, Deana learned how to sew from her mother when she was about 7 or 8 years old and caught the sewing bug. She has taken courses in tailoring at FIT and loves to take classes with Threads authors as often as she can.
Deana also oversees the ThreadsMagazine.com and SewStylish.com websites, as well as special newsstand-only publications such as SewStylish magazine, which is published twice a year (Spring and Fall), and Quick Stuff to Sew.
The latest effort from the Threads magazine staff has been the launch of the Teach Yourself to Sew video series. These videos are geared toward beginning sewers, but they also offer a great refresher of the basics for sewers at any skill level, and can be found at TeachYourselftoSew.com. A DVD and a special newsstand-only issue of the same title will be on sale this fall.
The chat is open to all Friends of PR members. Chat instructions will be posted on the PR home page on Wednesday morning.
