Threads Magazine #73 from November 1997

This interesting magazine contains a wealth of information. This issue is OOP, and is a duplicate from my collection. In fact, if I am reading correctly, at Threads Magazine dot com - every issue below #96 is out of print - that is as of November 2013. In attempting to have every issue #1 to present (I think it's #179), I sometimes need to purchase a group of several in order to get the one magazine I have been looking for. That might seem like a total waste of time, but out of #179 magazines, I was able to complete my collection!! I will have to turn my obsessive compulsive hoarding in another direction soon!!

A word about the photographs. They show the front cover, the back cover, and the storage I use so that you can be assured your magazine will be clean and protected. First, the magazine as stored in a zipper top bag, and second, the magazine in the zipper top bag stored in a plastic magazine rack. Have I mentioned I am ever so slightly obsessive and compulsive?? That works to the buyer's benefit in this instance.

A note to individuals who have never seen a Threads magazine. Threads first issue was, I believe, the Oct/Nov 1985 issue. It is large by today’s standards, 9" x 11" - although the first 26 issues were slightly taller, at 9" x 12". Threads magazine is not simply a sewing magazine, it covers knitting, crochet, felting, heirloom, weaving on a loom - shoemaking!!!!! Each issue is a unique and unexpected treasure trove of information. I highly recommend you purchase one issue. You will quickly know if this is a magazine you would like to see more of. Some of the more recent back issues are available at Taunton Press, the manufacturer of numerous fine magazines covering many subjects - I generally go directly to the THREADS website at Threads Magazine dot com. By far the most available source of back issues, though, would be here on Etsy, at an online auction, occasionally at a thrift store.... It is possible to purchase a DVD with the entire collection years 1985 - present, available on The cost for this was $100 as of November, 2013. My personal preference is to hold an issue in my hands, and when I need an OOP issue, I always check Etsy first.

The condition of this magazine is very good. There is very slight discoloration next to the fold on the front cover, but no tears, no noted dogears - the top right hand corner in photograph one shows a reflection, not damage to the magazine.
Included in this issue:
Tassels, Tassels, Tassels! Stenciling Workshop by Diane Ericson Bargello by the piece
Zip it up by Susan Khalje Freehand quilting The Master Tailor: Richard Tyler
Custom Leggings A primer on Sewing Knits Matching Plaids

If you wonder what an 18 year old magazine can teach you, remember that Threads magazine has never been a follower of fads, although the information was current when it was printed, it translates to today. For example, the designer tips gained by examining a suit made by California designer Richard Tyler is timeless information.

This magazine ships USPS, United States Postal Service, in a large first class envelope. Sorry, I don't combine shipping for these magazines with other items..

For sales with a value of $50 or more, I send them "signature required" whenever possible. This protects both the buyer and the seller.


I ship through the United States Postal Service First Class International Mail Service. No insurance or delivery confirmation is available with this shipping method. The customs form number will only let you know that it has left the US. No further tracking is available. Delivery can take 3 to 8 WEEKS, so I ask you to be patient.



As the seller, I do not pay for any applicable duty, value added taxes (VAT) or import consumption taxes charged to you by your country. The recipient of the merchandise, that is, YOU, the buyer might be required to pay the duty or VAT upon delivery. Due to import duty valuation adjustments and currency valuations, we are unable to provide an estimate for duty or VAT. Please check with your customs/postal office to find out what those fees are.

I include an invoice with each package that corresponds with the customs form stating the full purchase price of each order. I will NOT lie about the value of items so that you can pay less, please do not ask me.

Your country may charge additional customs duty and/or import taxes. These are not my responsibility to pay.

** International shipping times do vary greatly depending on location. You can expect a package to take 3-8 weeks so please be patient. I will accurately inform you of the shipping date**


"Payment is required at check-out (NO ECHECKS PLEASE!). Except in the case of "processing" issues, where the payment does not quickly clear through no fault of the buyer or the seller, unpaid orders will be canceled within thirty-six hours, without notice, unless you make arrangements PRIOR to proceeding to check-out. Items not paid for are no longer available in my shop or to other customers. Thank you for understanding the need for this policy."

After using Paypal for years, I finally offer Direct Checkout through Etsy.
I may accept personal checks or money orders on an INDIVIDUAL basis, so please make the request and I will consider your request, and if I agree to it, I will temporarily make that an option. I simply request your patience, it may take up to 5 days before they clear my bank.

I want to remind residents of the state of Minnesota, we have a 6.875% sales tax. It will be added when you pay with paypal.
If you choose to pay by check or money order, please convo me and I will figure your tax. When you think about it, 6.875% is not such a bad deal. considering we enjoy warm tropical breezes all year here in Minnesota.

Returns & exchanges

If on receipt you feel an item doesn't live up to the description, please convo me and we will work it out. So far every experience I have had purchasing on Etsy has been wonderful. I want you to feel the same way!
If there is a problem, contact me immediately - As long as I have been notified ahead of time and it is within 90 days of purchase, I will give a refund when the item has been returned in the same condition it was received. Return postage is the customer's responsibility.

Additional policies

Many of my painted items have the date they were painted on the bottom. So you might see things painted as long ago as 2001. Please don’t worry, these are brand new, unused items that have been in storage just waiting for their debut! All item have been stored in my non-smoking, pet-free home.
