Love the December/January issue, especially the Guide to Sewing Machine Shopping and Threads articles! Fortunately, I have a machine I love, but I am now shopping for a replacement for my 20 year old serger. How about a similar article on sergers?


Mary Anne Peeples writes—

I have dropped everything I was doing to read the new magazine that arrived today. Thank you for two articles in particular:
1. “Capital Shopping,” finding really nice fabrics in the “big box” fabric chains in my town is a challenge. When I visit St. Louis there are two fabric stores I visit. I have always wanted to go fabric shopping in Washington, DC, because I had heard of G Street Fabrics. I’m glad to learn that a trip there would have so many stores to visit.
2. “Thread Tutorial” is of particular interest. I still sew on my 45 year old Singer, but have lately acquired a Bernina, a serger, and a cover stitch machine. I’m never certain what thread to be using with each. I will photocopy this article and keep it in my sewing room.  
I bought Vogue 2915 before it was discontinued for a patchwork jacket. Thanks for the idea of using the pattern for free motion embellishment for a totally different look. I have read your pattern book and used your patterns since I learned to sew (back in the 1950s!).

Response from The Editors—We’re so happy you enjoyed the articles in this issue. We strive to bring you informative features that cover a wide variety of topics from fitting and construction to tools and equipment to creative ideas and accessories. Unfortunately we have a small correction for the Sewing Machine Shopping article. On page 18 in the Sewing Machine Comparison Chart, Top Of The Line section, the Bernina arista 820 should be BERNINA 820 (not arista). We’re sorry for any confusion this may have caused.

Wow! That’s what I kept saying as I clicked through the Winter/Holiday 2009 patterns online. I already have 8 patterns in my cart after just one pass through. I confess I have been using more European patterns of late, they seem to have more fashion forward styles seen in ready-to-wear than the U.S. companies. I’m so tired of very easy to sew sacks! Give me details and a challenge. This latest group of patterns has won me back. I was especially happy to see pattern 1141. Not because of the suit (which is very nice), but I was thrilled to see that cute little top that was discontinued in pattern 2925 before I got around to ordering it in my daughter’s size. Thank you, and more, more, more! My personal favorites from this bunch are 1150, 1151, 1143, 8612, 8613, 8626, and 8627. There are usually some that I think are just ghastly, but not this time. This from a 53 year old Californian. My 17 year old daughter also likes many of these new patterns. I can’t wait to start sewing!

I just wanted to send you a picture of the finished product of pattern 8280. I’m not a very experienced sewer, so when my daughter chose this pattern I was a little concerned. I always shied away from Vogue patterns because I thought it would be too difficult for me. I won’t lie, I did have to rip out and sew again a number of times before I got it right. I’m very proud of my accomplishment and I just wanted to share it with your company. Thank you for your time.

Your new custom-fit patterns with separate pieces for different cup styles is a WONDERFUL addition! It ranks up there with your multiple sizes in one envelope. Thanks for eliminating some of my need for alterations. I’ve been sewing with Vogue patterns for over 50 years and continue to appreciate your styles and innovations.

Love the new cup sizing on a few of your Very Easy Vogue patterns! Please expand this to more patterns; perhaps all tops?

I discovered the new bust size patterns yesterday and I can’t tell you how thrilled I am. What a great thing you have done for all of us with bust line issues. As a large busted woman I have struggled for years with patterns. So Vogue, you’ve done a great, great thing for us!
