    I don’t subscribe to any sewing magazines…I rely on websites and blogs for current sewing information. The only magazine I subscribe to is National Geographic..so intriguing!

    My favorites to read are Interior Design magazine, ReadyMade, and Wallpaper. Wallpaper has everything I love – architecture, fashion, and design in general. I also love to read Dezeen, an online magazine also about all kinds of design.

    I love to read Real Simple to get ideas for making things for my home and gifts. I also enjoy reading sewing blogs for ideas and tips. Sew News has great instructions and I am just getting familiar with Burda. Than you for the giveways!

    I like vintage copies of Life, Look and Vogue. They are really fun to peruse and rife with wonderful frocks, from the cover model right down to cold syrup ads. I find that many styles are relevant to today and very adaptable.

    Right now my favorite magazines have to be Selvedge from the UK and almost all of Stampington Publications magazines. I live in Mexico with no real dependable mail service. All our mail goes to a Courier in Texas, who brings it down 3xs a week. It also makes for a huge hurdle for submitting art work. Stampington has bent over backwards to help me get my art work to them.

    I just started reading Burda Style and it is fast becoming a must have !!

    I mostly read the New Yorker and travel magazines (I can dream!) and depend on shopping and blogs for sewing inspiration. That’s about to change since I just started subscribing to Burda Style. Can’t wait to receive my first issue!

    I’m all about InStyle. It manages to do a good job of covering new fashion developments without making readers feel inadequate about whatever quality is the popular dumping ground du jour. Horray for no articles about bad sex and cellulite.

    The only magazine I buy is BurdaStyle, mainly because most specialized magazines are few and expensive. However, I do find a lot of inspiration from the internet.

    I don’t buy magazines very often but I like English and Italian Vogues. As I’m house decorating at the moment, it’s mostly paint catalogues and Ikea catalogues.

    I like Burda Style and Marie Claire. Burda Style is inspirational, and has a lot of tips and how to’s that make sewing more rewarding. Marie Claire has a wide variety of articles which leads me back to Burda to make my own delicious in style garments.

    As to sewing, my favourite magazine is Burda, because there are patterns of different difficulty levels and the instructions are cleat and easy. I sometimes read La mia Boutique, its patterns are nice but more difficult for me.. I subscribe to some Italian indipendent information magazines, which I find really interesting and help me to understand how things in the world are going.

    I subscribed to Harper’s Bazaar because it was something like $5 for two years and I felt like I should get a lady magazine as I was all grown up. I now find myself grabbing ideas all over the place, particularly for fabric/color combination!

    I subscribe to Threads for all of the techniques and wealth of information, regularly pick up Burda for fashion inspiration, and just saw a few copies of Vogue Patterns sitting around my Mom’s, which may be a new habit. Non-sewing, yet also inspiring & fun are my subscriptions to Dwell and Wired, for all things modern and geeky!
