- Excellent Issue Review by Rhi
I found the clothing focus in this issue to be inspiring.
Some lovely, and indeed practical, items are there. One of the skirts I need in my life. I am already considering how to make my own version once I finish what I am currently making.
A note on the other review of this issue. Living outside of the US, I accept that the yarn used is usually something I will need to substitute, and therefore the issues the other reviewer mentions, is not something I take into account. That being said - Silk City Fibers can be found here: www.silkcityfibers.com and list their stockists on their site.

- Yarn issues Review by Connie
I just received my latest issue and was disappointed in the clothing focus of this one. The drafts are beautiful and I may try some, but most are not practical.
The one item I did really want to try was the Monet Mobius by Marilyn Murphy. The idea of trying the chenille and ribbon is interesting, but when I went to try and find the Silk City rayon chenille I could get little to know help with a retail outlet that has it for sale. I know that there is a need to keep the smaller yarn wholesalers in business, but if something is going to be used in a widely distributed magazine I would think it would be easier to locate than this. I am very disappointed. If anyone at Handwoven has a place this can be easily order I would like to have that information.
