I’ve had a subscription to the American Patchwork and Quilting magazine for about ten years, and I still love it. Even though I don’t always make something from each issue, I still read them from cover to cover, including the ads. I also love their seasonal magazine Quilts and More, which comes out four times a year.
One of my favorite regular features are the Workbook Pages, where the editors provide tips and techniques on fabrics, thread, sewing needles, pins and more.
I especially love this guide on thread and sewing machine needle recommendations for various stitching.
Since I don’t have a lot of space to save old magazines, and I’m not a saver, these are exactly the types of articles I would tear out and put into plastic sheet protectors to save for future reference. I thought this might be another small best practice worth sharing with you.
