No question about it—this is my favorite magazine out there.
Threads is my go-to magazine for perfecting garment sewing skills.
A lush quarterly publication that highlights quilters from locations across the country.
A great resource to stretch the imagination and try a few new techniques.
An educational organization that publishes a quarterly journal and hosts exhibitions and conferences.
Membership in the American Craft Council includes their publication, American Craft.
Some specialty vendors I use:
Interesting clothing patterns, especially suited to wearable art applications. The fit is wonderful! They also have beautiful fabrics, and Linda Lee is a world-class teacher.
A terrific assortment of threads, especially suited to the long-arm machine, but smaller spools are good for regular machines, too, or you can use a cone adaptor.
This Canadian company has some of the most beautifully dyed cotton, silk, and wool threads. I especially love their #12 variegated perle cotton for bobbin embroidery.
Everything you need to naturally dye silk fibers, or you can purchase skeins they’ve dyed for you. They will even sell you silk worm eggs, so you can raise your own!
All your dyeing needs are available here, including well-priced fabrics. They offer great tutorials, too.
I prefer to support my local brick and mortar stores, but so many bead shops have closed. This company is where I go for many of my beading supplies when I can’t source them locally.
